Finnegan (FINN) Bayliff

BIO: I have loved extreme sports and driving anything I could since I was just 2 years old. I actually gave up my diaper for a Honda CRF50 Motorcycle so I could learn to “fly like superman”!  I am always ready for an adventure.  When I’m not racing, I love to learn new things, like teaching myself to do backflips, surfing and snowboarding.  I am ready to be the best in any racing opportunity that presents itself.  My immediate goals include winning the SuperKarts USA TaG Senior Championship and moving on to Indy Cars or IMSA Sports Cars but my biggest dream is to live in Italy and represent the United States as a Formula One driver. I believe I can do anything with a positive mental attitude!

BIO: I have been racing karts since I was 7, I have had many wins but my favorite was in the TAG Junior class, Battle of the Brickyard race at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 2018.  I started doing my own mechanical work in 2017 and work throughout the week to prep the 15-20 karts we take to the races on the weekend.  Outside of racing and working I love to ski, but actually, I really just love to race…if I’m not on the track or working, you will find me on my sim!  I am determined to make it as a race driver, moving up the ladder into Indy Cars, IMSA or maybe even World of Outlaw Sprint Cars. My ultimate dream though is to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport – The Indianapolis 500, 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the Monaco Grand Prix!

My parents had tickets to the Indy 500 before I was born. I started going to time trials and race as a little kid and I've never grown out of it. I love open wheel racing the most (Indy car and F1) but enjoy sports car, NASCAR, dirt racing and just about everything else.
