First dawn of NHRA’s 2024 Camping World drag racing season next March will include something very significant….

We can now confirm that Canadian Sienna Wildgust – who is a 17-year old third generation racer — will make her NHRA Professional class debut during the season-opening Gatornationals at Gainesville Florida.

Sienna who is daughter to Smokies Garage Race Team Pro Mod class driver Scott Wildgust (from Mono Ontario) – is scheduled to be behind the wheel of a Pro Stock Camaro and when she does that, history will be made on a couple of significant fronts.  She will be the youngest person to ever compete within the NHRA Pro Stock class and will also be the first Canadian female driver ever in the category.

Sienna’s Pro Stock Camaro effort will be part of and overseen by the KB Titan Racing – currently NHRA’s largest and most dynamic Pro Stock team which is now part owned and includes Canada’s Eric Latino (Whitby ON) – who also drives.  Sienna confirmed that Eric Latino (founder of GESI) has played a major part within this impressive new racing development.

“Eric Latino did contact my family and said that NHRA Pro Stock would be the best class for me to display both my personality and driving abilities,” Sienna revealed.  “And ever since then things have been very busy and exciting.  I had the opportunity to go to KB Titan Racing during July (in North Carolina) to see how everything works and to get to know everyone there.  KB Titan Racing is simply amazing and I have the upmost respect for everyone involved.”

“This fall I will begin to test and license in my Pro Stock car under the guidance of the entire KB Titan team. I believe with hard work I have what it takes to earn championships and wins in NHRA Pro Stock as well as representing the companies that support me at the highest regard.  I can’t wait to make history as the youngest person to ever compete in a NHRA Pro Stock class – all coming next March!”

Sienna, who under the direct guidance of her father Scott is a skilled competitor from Junior Dragster ranks from where she participated since age 8.  She is also a graduate of Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School – earning licenses already for both dragsters and door slammers.  

Sienna Wildgust has honed her soon to be Professional career while successfully racing Junior Dragsters along side her father Scott.

Sienna and her new team will make a first public debut during the PRI Show (within the Racestar Industries booth) – at Indianapolis in December.
