Driver Information

My name is McKenna Haase and I'm a 26 year old racecar driver from Des Moines, Iowa. I first fell in love with racing after accidentally meeting NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne in a shopping mall when I was in 3rd grade and was also inspired by my cousin, Trenton, who started racing junior sprints when he was 6. When I was 13 I started my own race team, Team Haase Racing LLC and began racing box stock outlaw karts in 2010. I funded my team through seeking my own sponsorship and have continued managing THR from 2010-2023. I began racing sprint cars primarily at Knoxville Raceway when I was 17, and in my second season I became the first female to win a sprint car feature at Knoxville in 114 years. In 2018, I picked up my 5th career feature win at Knoxville Raceway. My mission since I began operating my own race team at the age of 13 has been to work in unison with partners, fans, and teams to create not only a winning race team, but a faith based race team focused on honesty, excellence, and integrity both off and on the racetrack. I am committed to putting my partners first and strive to be a good advocate for them as well as my fans and fellow racers. Throughout my career I've gained seat time behind the wheel of outlaw karts, micro sprints, midgets, asphalt late models, and sprint cars. Outside of racing I was a Finance major at Drake University where I was the president of the Drake Investment Club. I've appeared on NBC's American Ninja Warrior Season 11 and 13 and Fox Sports 1's This Racing Life. I also own my own youth driver development program, Compass Racing Development LLC, which was founded in 2015 as a faith based youth racing program to give kids opportunities in racing they wouldn't have received otherwise. In 2019, I founded Youth Racers of America Inc. as a way of helping kids nationwide to have a more accessible path getting into racing.

Today I live in Indianapolis and race 410 sprint cars across the Midwest. Thank you to ALL of my followers for their support! I couldn't do what I do without you!
