Journey Indiana – Warrior Princess – Badlands Off Road Park


>>A LOT OF PEOPLE ASK ME WHY DO PEOPLE VIEW PAGEANTS IN A NEGATIVE WAY. MOST PEOPLE VIEW PAGEANT QUEENS AS GIRLS WHO WALK AROUND IN HEELS AND WALK AROUND IN A SASH AND CROWN. LITTLE DO THEY KNOW THAT WE ARE SMART AND WE ARE ACTUALLY TOMBOYS.>>I’M SADIE WELCH, YOUR USA NATIONAL MISS MISS INDIANA 2020. AND MY JOB IS TO REPRESENT INDIANA AT THE STATE NATIONAL MISS NATIONALS IN JULY. I STARTED OUT AS LITTLE MISS TODDLERS AND TIARAS, AND GLITZ WORLD.FINALLY, I REALIZED WITH E CROWN AND SASH I COULD DO SOMETHING AND MAKE A STATEMENT IN THIS WORLD. I GOT INVOLVED IN MISS INDIANA TEEN U.S.A. AND THE HIGHEST PLACING I GOT WAS FIRST RUNNER-UP. THEN I WAS LIKE, I WANT TO DO MORE AND I AGED NOW. NOW I’M IN A MISS DIVISION AND WENT TO U.S.A. NATIONAL MISS AND I LOVED IT, AND I GET TO BE AN ADVOCATE FOR BULLING IN SCHOOLS AND REPRESENT INDIANA. ♪>>AND SO GROWING UP, I DID NATIONAL PAGEANTS INSTEAD OF NATIONAL RACING AND I HAD THE GLITZ AND GLAMOR AND THEN I WENT INTO RACING WITH MY BROTHER AND I REALIZED I LIKED THIS AND I GOT TO RACE AGAINST THE GUYS. IT WAS FUN WITH THE HOLE SHOTS. PULLING OUT IN FRONT OF THEM. I USED TO HAVE A LITTLE LICENSE PLATE THAT SAID, “YOU JUST GOT PASSED BY A GIRL.” I THINK THE DRIVE, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A GUY TO BE DOMINANT IN THIS SPORT AND AS I GREW OLDER, I KNEW I COULD BE DOMINANT IN THIS MALE DOMINANT SPORT. I PERSONALLY GREW ON HOW TO BE A BETTER PERSON BY NOT FACING THE STEREOTYPICAL PAGEANT GIRL AND BEING A RACE GIRL TOO. ♪ SO I STARTED RACING WHEN I WAS YOUNGER AND MY BROTHER, IT WAS ACTUALLY HIS SPORT, AND HE WAS AMAZING AT IT. HE WAS THE STAR OF THE SHOW AND I WAS ALWAYS AT GLITZ PAGEANTS. WHAT IF I GOT ON A FOUR-WHEELER, WOULD I LIKE IT? I STARTED HAVING FUN AND I ENDED UP RACING. WE RACED TOGETHER FOR A LITTLE BIT. IT WAS HIS WORLD AND I WAS FOLLOWING IN HIS FOOTSTEPS. HE’S KIND OF GROWN OUT OF RACING, BUT I HOPPED ON A HONDA 450 AND I THINK IT’S A WHOLE NEW WORLD AND I LOVE IT. NOW I RACE WHEN I’M ABLE TO. IF I’M NOT AT A PAGEANT, I’M RACING OR IN THE COMMUNITY. I’M ALSO A LUCAS OIL GIRL. SO PRO MOTOCROSS NATIONAL RACES WHICH IS A DIFFERENT ATMOSPHERE THAN ATV. I GET TO HOLD A BOARD AND THE 30 SECONDS BUT NOT ONLY THAT, I GET TO INTERVIEW THE BEST OF THE BEST IN THE RACING WORLD. I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN THE IXCR CROSS COUNTRY RACING, SINCE I WAS SIX YEARS OLD. SO 14 YEARS. I WAS THE ONLY GIRL WHO RACED AGAINST THE GUYS. I WAS A LITTLE WORM RUNNING ALL AROUND. AND THEY REALIZED THAT RACING WAS NOT EVERYTHING THAT I DID. AND THEY SUPPORTED ME IN EVERYTHING I DID OUTSIDE THE RACING WORLD, AND JUST THE RACING COMMUNITY WHERE IT’S A RACING FAMILY. IT’S A BIG GROUP OF LOVE AND WE ALL LOVE THE SPORT OF RACING AND THAT’S WHAT IXCR IS. TODAY I’M HERE JUST TO HAVE FUN AND DO WHAT I LOVE. I’M RACING A HONDA 450R AGAINST THE GUYS. AT NATIONAL, I WOULD BE RACING AGAINST THE GIRLS BUT THE WOMEN’S PRO CLASS HERE IS NOT AS COMPETITIVE AND I LIKE TO PUSH MYSELF. THAT’S WHY I RACE AGAINST THE GUYS AND HOPEFULLY THEY DON’T GET CONCERNED WHEN A GIRL WITH A CROWN SHOWS UP NEXT TO THEM. [ LAUGHTER ] ALONG WITH INDIANA CROSS COUNTRY RACING, I HAVE DONE GRAND NATIONAL CROSS COUNTRY RACING WHICH STANDS FOR GNCC. IT’S A SERIES THAT’S NATIONWIDE AND 13 WEEKENDS OUT OF THE YEAR, WE COME TOGETHER FROM DIFFERENT STATES AND RACE COMPETITIVELY, IT’S JUST A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ATMOSPHERE, BUT IT STILL HAS THE DRIVE OF THE LOVE FOR RACING, AND I GOT TWO NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS AND NOW I RACE THE WOMEN’S PRO CLASS, WHEN I’M BE ABLE TO DO THAT. I GO TO SELECT FEW OF THOSE NOW SINCE I’M IN SCHOOL AND REPRESENTING INDIANA IN OTHER COMMUNITY EVENTS. IT’S HARD TO GO TO THEM ALL. WHEN I GO, I LIKE TO REPRESENT AND RACE THE WOMEN’S PRO CLASS. SO ONE OF MY MAIN GOALS AS YOUR U.S.A. NATIONAL MISS INDIANA 2020 IS TO BREAK THE STEREO TYPICAL PAGEANT GIRL. I’M A D1 ATHLETE AT PURDUE UNIVERSITY WHERE I’M A CHEERLEADER THERE. I LOVE TO RACE FOUR-WHEELERS AND GET DIRTY AND RACE AGAINST THE GUYS BUT I’M AN ADVOCATE FOR BULLYING AND RESPECTIVE ENVIRONMENTS IN SCHOOLS AND I WANT TO TEACH OTHERS TO FOLLOW THEIR DREAMS AND NOT GIVE UP.
