Caruso: From Learning To Drive A ‘Clutch Car’ To Racing NHRA Pro Stock In Two Years

Two years ago, Camrie Caruso was parked at a drag strip in Florida learning how to drive a “clutch car.”. “I was like, ‘We aren’t leaving until I learn how to drive this stupid race car,’” Caruso recalled with a laugh. “My dad was like ‘You’re not racing Pro Mod.’ After he broke his back in one, he was like, ‘Sorry, try again,’” Caruso said. “When we lost first round in the first race, I literally cried,” Caruso said. “You have the highs and then you have the really lows, and then you realize the smallest things make you happy again,” Caruso said. To top it all off, in November, Caruso earned the rookie-of-the-year award. “I was excited that I could bring a trophy home for [the team] this year,” Caruso said. “You have to have a first year of learning and growing pains and all that, so that leads us into 2023,” Caruso said.
