Brittney Olsen to Race in Search for a Champion Contest

Brittney Olsen on a 1939 HarleyDavidsonELBrittney Olsen (24), antique motorcycle racer and activist, will be racing this upcoming year in the Search for a Champion contest for the chance to win a top sponsorship of $50,000, awarded by Champion Spark Plug. To participate, every contestant submitted a short video clip where they described the type of racing they do and why they deserved the sponsorship.

As Brittney states in her video, winning the grand prize or being voted as a runner up would allow her to not only take her racing to the next level, but would allow her to sponsor other young riders interested in riding antique bikes. A member of 20th Century Racing (TCR), Brittney and TCR have already provided a 14-year-old girl from Ohio with a 1948 Hummer to race in the 165cc Lightweight class at the 2014 Vintage and Antique Motorcycle Races.

Last year, Brittney raced her 1923 Harley-Davidson J model in the Boardtrack Class in Wauseon and Davenport.

People can vote once every day until March 23. To vote for Brittney and to watch her contestant clip, click here.
