Speed Round With Jackie Heinricher

Last TV show you binge watched? 

I don’t remember! Probably something to do with cooking.

All-time favorite racecar driver? 

Michèle Mouton. She is a famous former rally driver and one of my role models.

Facebook, Twitter or Instagram? 

Instagram. I like to see what everybody’s doing.

Pre-race meal? 

An energy gel and lots of hydrating liquids, but I stop that 30 minutes before the race for obvious reasons.

Post-race meal? 

You burn about 3000 calories every 50 minutes, so I like to reward myself with a big juicy cheeseburger.

Any superstitions or good luck charms? 

Not really. I do love listening to the music of famous racecar drivers and their stories before I get in the car.

Beach, mountains or somewhere else? 

I live in the mountains so I’m probably going to go to the beach.

Favorite racetrack? 

In the U.S., it’s Road America.

Most daring thing you’ve done outside of racing? 

Started a company!

If you weren’t a racecar driver, what would you be? 

I’m an innovator and a scientist, so I’d put more of my time there.
