Race car driving is no joke, but for 12-year-old Sarah Sullivan, going fast is one of her favorite parts about racing.

"I like going fast and having the challenge of trying to get first,” said Sarah Sullivan, a local 12-year-old race car driver.

It doesn’t bother her that she is trying to get first in a sport mostly dominated by males.

"When I am in the car I just feel like anyone else. It doesn’t matter if you are a girl or a boy. You're all doing the same thing and that's racing,” said Sarah.

And her little sister is following in her race tracks.

"I'm going to kick all the boy’s butts," said Sadie Fuller.

The 6-year-old firecracker is also caught in the fast lane and she already knows what it takes to win.

"You have to beat all of them and get in first place," said Sadie.

The prize is totally worth it.

"I can have a million cupcakes if I win,” said Sadie.

The young trailblazers put a new meaning to the term race like a girl.

"I was told as soon as you put your helmet on you're no longer friends you’re competitors and I just do whatever it takes to get up there on the track,” said Sarah.

Because anything boys can do girls can do better.

"Don't let anything stop you, don't get intimidated and just go fast," said Sarah.
