Lisa Clark grew up racing dirt bikes and dune buggies around the deserts of Arizona with her father. When it came time for her first car, Lisa and her dad towed an old Jeep CJ5 into the garage where they rebuilt the engine over a summer. The hours they spent bonding over wrenches and screwdrivers became a passion. As Lisa grew, so did her love of all things automotive.

Eventually, her passion expanded from dune buggies to Ferraris. This year, Lisa competed in the Ferrari Challenge series behind the wheel of a 458 GT3. Following the footsteps of her Great-Uncle Don Branson, who raced in Sprint Car and the Indy 500 in the 60s, Lisa proudly races in the same colors as his Indy car to carry on his legacy.

Describing herself as a “Ferrari girl at heart,” Lisa was among the first to see the Petersen’s “Seeing Red.” She has been actively involved with the museum for years, inspiring a new generation of women racers, including her two daughters.
