FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Paige Rogers, a 2021 Concordia graduate, is returning to the high school on Friday to talk about her life as a professional race car driver.
Rogers drives with Rev Racing, which fields minorities and females inside the sport of NASCAR and pushes for diversity and inclusion efforts. She will be sharing with students over lunch her story and journey to where she is today — a trial of faith and uncertainty.

She began her love of racing at 10 years old in local go-kart divisions throughout Indiana and Ohio. She ran go- karts from 2013-2016 and got behind a late model wheel for the first time in 2019. She traveled across 5 different states racing a Sportsman, Super Late Models, Pro Late Models, and in the Wheelman Late Models Series. She garnered her first win at Corrigan Oil Speedway in 2021. She was runner-up in both points series that year. In 2022, she placed 3rd in point standings at Corrigan Oil Speedway.
