How Rad Are You: Julia Landauer
Meet Julia, a pro Nascar car driver competing in North America.
Where are you from?
New York City, USA
Describe yourself in 3 words:
Driven, Entertaining, Competitive
What's the best part about your sport?
Making all the pieces come together for a win.
What’s the single most important factor associated with winning?
That’s a tough one, but I’d narrow it down to the combination of driver, car set up, and some luck.
Favorite oval is Bristol Motor Speedway, favorite road course is Road America.
Do you have any advice for young athletes that aspire to become pro drivers?
Network, meet people, work hard, and learn the business of racing as quickly as possible.
What is one major challenge that you’ve had to overcome in your career? How did you overcome it?
Sometimes earning the respect of the team can be tough. I try to show the team the kind of competitor I am through my actions, by collaborating with them, and letting them know I respect them.
What does the word "Rad" mean to you?
“Rad” means "totally badass” to me.
JUST FOR FUN:
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
A pint of ice cream in one sitting.
What’s something you wish you didn’t spend so much money on?
My plants. Unfortunately my travel schedule kills plants somewhat regularly, but I love having an indoor jungle so I keep buying new ones.
Who’s one person you think everyone should be following on social media?
Me! lol jk, I’m super amused by @commentsbycelebs right now.
Which Moradness hat is your favourite?
