Shea Holbrook was born for cool jobs... Once an elite competitive water skier, she made the unusual crossover to auto racing at age 16. She has since become a six-race winner in road racing's Pirelli World Challenge Touring Car class and a team owner, running Shea Racing with her parents, Jeff and Erin Holbrook, from a 1,200-square-foot shop next to their rural home in Groveland, Florida.

Now 26, Shea has a bachelor's degree from the University of Central Florida in communication, with a minor in marketing, and she's a driver coach for the Sports Car Club of America's Track Night America, a program that gives everyday drivers access to race circuits across the country.

"I'll never really forget what it was like to start one of those things up for the first time. You're like a fighter jet pilot without the wings," she says in an interview with ESPN.
