Who Is This Girl Boss?

Christi Lynn Gaskin

Beyoncé said it before and we’ll say it again. Who runs the world? Girls!

Meet Christi Lynn Gaskin, the Under Pressure Motorsport Media Marketing Director and Team Manager to the 3 man drag racing team, Greg Gaskin, Bob Sargent and Mike Bagley. She is also the Crew Chief to Greg Gaskin’s race car. Now I know you’re probably wondering what does a crew chief do on a dragster car? Christi is the car engineer with her dad, Greg and her mom, Lisa. She mathematically calculates the air fuel mixtures combined with ambient and track temperature and then calculates the formula to be loaded into the car to make the car go fast. Whew!!

But Christi’s story doesn’t just stop there! She is a single mother to Alexia Belcher, 6 and Dayne Belcher 11, she’s a preschool teacher as well as a tanning consultant. And for the past 10 years and still going strong she sells Scentsy, a beautiful online website that sells all things that smell yummy.

Christi wears many hats but what she loves the most, besides her family of course, is racing. Like her dad racing is in her blood too. Born and raised on the south side of Indianapolis she grew up going to the track every weekend since the first month she was born. While she enjoyed playing basketball and volleyball she forwent softball because the season was at the same time as race season.

Her parents noticing her love for racing they never pressured her into it; as a matter of fact, probably to deter her from that racing itch she had they told her she had to maintain an A, B school average if she ever dreamt of having a racing career. So what did Christi do? She aced school, gracing the honor roll.

This extremely double jointed, adrenaline junkie, former Hooter’s girl, Christi Lynn Gaskin, was a Jr. dragster star, championing it a few times in a row. Yes! She showed up with the boys and showed out!!!

So what’s next for Christi who’s only 30?

She hopes to see herself taking over the family business in the driver’s seat but she’s not in a hurry. She loves working next to Mom, with Dad in the driver’s seat and she deems it an honor to take over once Dad officially retires.

Christi says,

“He has set the bar high with the Gaskin name that’s for sure. Big shoes to fill!”

Christi has sat on every side of the track, from the spectator to the racer to the crew chief. She credits everything she knows to her parents and acknowledges that women in drag racing couldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Shirley Muldowney.

Christi says,

“Without this lady, (Shirley Muldowney) drag racing would have never been a thing. We owe it all to her.”

As for her little 6 year old daughter, Alexia?

“It would be the next big thing! I’d love to teach her everything I know and her be the driver I know she can be. She has the itch also!”

Well there you have it. We’ll be keeping our eye on Christi Gaskin and little baby girl Alexia, America’s future Shirley Muldowney.

Watch out boys.

Over 60 Yrs Old and Still Winning!!

And the winner is… Greg Gaskin by a fraction of a second. Yes! The Under Pressure Motorsport Team went to Muncie Indiana, just north of Indianapolis to race. While the team was there only Greg Gaskin out of the 3 man team raced his car to the finish line as the victor. We’re so proud of Greg and all eyes are on you for the biggest race out of the entire season that’s coming up next.

This is a two-day race where you qualify and race both days. We will have 2 cars competing May 15th and 16th so it will be double the pleasure and we’re still waiting to see which of our drivers, Bob Sarget or Mike Bagley will grace the second car. You see Bob underwent major heart surgery several weeks ago and after an excruciating recovery Bob, this over 60 year old stud, is itching to get back in that beast.

Mike’s car is still in the shop primping and prepping and getting into tip top shape so it’s not yet available for this big race day.

Will Mike drive Bob’s car so Bob can have a few more weeks of recovery or will Bob jump in that bad boy and burn some rubber to champion this race?

We will definitely keep you updated on how everything pans out.

If you want to help these guys too we have t-shirts and hats for sale here and here or you can meet them at the race when they’re in your town and purchase there. Just look for the below poster and you’ll be able to purchase and meet the drivers in person. They would love to meet you.

The beauty about esvyn clothing is that it has moisture wicking properties keeping you cool and more dry during a workout or just daily sweating. And what’s even better is that our clothes go from day to night so you can workout in your clothes in the day and then go out later in the same clothes if need be; and with moisture wicking properties it also has anti-microbial properties which means you are less likely to smell.
