December 3, 2014 – Thirty days ago Shea Holbrook announced her pursuit to go jet drag racing in the IHRA Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series and launched a Dark Horse Pros crowdfunding campaign to help accomplish her goal. Thanks to her fans Holbrook achieved her goal raising $32,222 surpassing her original goal of $30,000. The campaign allowed Holbrook to work towards her financial goal and became a fantastic marketing platform to involve fans while promoting partners.
Holbrook lives by a quote her and her father came up with, “Fear is a state of mind, Will is an action taken.”
Shea has a lot to be thankful for and publicly thanked all her supporters saying,
“Announcing my crowdfunding campaign brought all kinds of emotions. Excitement, fear, happiness and so many more. I worked hard on how I wanted it to be perceived, the marketability and how to make it successful. That’s when I starting thinking these key words: Dream, Believe, Support, Achieve.
I put everything on the line to follow my dream but what made this time different was relying on my supporters to achieve the ultimate goal. For 30 days I worked, asked for suggestions, talked to hundreds of people, took to social media, went to the SEMA tradeshow to promote and started my jet dragster training.
But everything we prepared would have been a waste of time if it wasn’t for you.
Your generous contribution means more than just putting me behind the wheel of a jet dragster. You’ve impacted the future of my career in a way I couldn’t have done on my own. Your support and this experience has been extremely powerful and has humbled me in such a way I’m forever thankful for.
Thank you taking action and having the will to join me in this pursuit.
I’ll never forget what you’ve done for me. Next season is for you! I will continue to update you throughout my licensing process which I start making passes December 18-21 and the entire season.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you,” said Holbrook.
