Amanda is a super fan of all dirt track racing! Racing is her #1 passion in life. 

She started attending races at the young age of two and hasn’t looked back since. She started a racing blog in 2018: Living the Dirt Life with Amanda Jo, to document all the fun adventures her and her family would go one while following sprint cars around the Upper Midwest.

 Amanda left the fan grandstands in 2020, to start working as a NOSA competition director, which she still is today. In 2020 she also, became the points director for the Minn-Kota Lightning Sprints, that morphed into the series competition director in 2021. 

In 2021, she helped to create NOSA magazine and writes a weekly article for that. She started working at Buffalo River Speedway in the timing and scoring division in 2021 as well. In 2022, Amanda added Co-owner of the Minn-Kota Lightning Sprints to her plate, along with becoming a BMX mom as well. 

Her life revolves around her family and racing.
