Mary “Mickey” Wright is from Homewood, Illinois. Her first racing experience came at Raceway Park
Racetrack in Chicago’s south suburban Blue Island. By the age of 21 she was a two time “Powder Puff”
Champion. She left racing for a career in the construction industry and wouldn’t return to the driver’s
seat for nearly 25 years.
In 2007 at the age of 45, Mickey got the itch to revist her dream. She moved from Colorado to
Clearwater, Florida, to team up with coach and owner Stuart Lycett at Competition 101 Racing School.
Mickey Wright’s orientation year consisted of running short, paved oval tracks throughout Florida,
Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina. In 2008 and 2009 she focused on dirt track racing to further
improve her car control skills. Growing tremendously as a driver, Mickey placed Third in Season points
both years. Returning to pavement in 2010, she finished SECOND IN POINTS in the Florida Modified
(FMD) division. Mickey was the first woman in history to lead Super Production Over (SPO) points in the
V8 Stock Car series, with a year-end SECOND IN POINTS finish. Capping off the season Thanksgiving
weekend, she crossed the finish line in FIRST PLAVE for Sports Car Club of America’s (SCCA) annual
“Turkey Trot” at Sebring International Raceway
