Alli Owens is Ready to
Make a Come Back, now as a Mother
South Daytona, FL – Her
face and name were among the regulars in the ARCA garage between
2008 and 2010.
She was a national spokesperson for several organizations.
This young lady even sat on the front row at Daytona in the ARCA
race in 2009,
but hasn't been heard from or seen much of in the past couple of
years until now.
Alli Owens has announced she will be making a solid effort to return
to motorsports in full force in 2014.
Her only condition is that she is fully funded. “I want to put
myself in a perfect scenario this time.
Taking time away from the sport has allowed me to mature as an
individual and business woman which
has prepared me for this comeback journey”.
From a public point of view it looked like Owens just vanished at
the end of her ARCA effort in 2010
with Venturini Motorsports, but that wasn’t the case. Her four year
ElectrifyingCareers.com came to a sudden end when the economy put a
strain on blue collar America
and unions. “In the four years together, the program increased by
three hundred percent.
Numbers were great and the ROI was gaining, but we understood what
had to happen.
It was sad to see it come to an end”, Commented Owens.
After scrambling to try to find funding and falling short, Alli
chose to step away from the only thing she knew
(racing) and began to build her personal life. She married long time
NASCAR Mechanic Paul Chodora
in 2011 and soon became a mother to daughter, Braelynn Everlee, who
is now a little over a year old.
Paul and Alli are expecting their second daughter in early June of
“I knew people assumed having a baby is why I stopped racing, but
they were wrong.
Being a mother was always part of my life goals and it just worked
out where the time came
when my sponsorship ended. Having a second child was an easy
decision after our
2012 potential sponsorship deal fell through two weeks before
leaving for Daytona to race.
I was over the broken promises and major let downs. I had to step
away for a while for my
sanity and for my family’s sake.”
Alli Owens made a bold statement to her family, friends, and fans in
early December of 2012.
She declared that it was time. Time to return to the driver’s seat,
time to set the record straight
about mom’s still being able to follow their dreams after child
birth, time to be an example for
her daughters, and most importantly it is time to finish what she
started at the drop of each green flag!
Owens said, “Our second child will be here in less than six months,
so that is my personal
deadline to have solid potential sponsorships in the pipe line. I
will need time to be in the gym
getting my strength, weight, and endurance back to competitive
I also need time to get back in the seat and regroup on my feel for
the car and being
behind the wheel again.” She continued, “I know there is going to be
people that will doubt me
being able to do this. I will respect their opinions but I will
continue to move forward.
I'm doing this for all the people around the world that are looking
for a symbol of empowerment, for ‘I can do this’ encouragement, for
little children like my own kids who need healthy stable idols
instead of Hollywood or reality TV, and it’s for me to know that
I can believe in myself and that hard work really does pay off.”
Owens reports that she is going to take smart steps to get back to
the top of her game.
She is thinking of returning to the ARCA Series and possibly NASCAR
to regain familiarity with the variety of tracks and then add select
NASCAR Camping World Truck races
once she feels like she is ready. “This is going to be a smart
transition for me.
I rather race my way to the top and let my finishes decided how
I will move up the racing ladder” Alli said with a determined look
on her face.
“I've already won three of the greatest rewards of all, a wonderful
husband and two daughters!”
she added a quick remark, “I think I am more excited to hear
Braelynn tell everyone
that her mommy beat the boys”!
If you would like to help Alli make her come back or have ideas
please contact her through her website

This will take a huge effort on everyone’s part to make this happen.
