This Florida girl grew up in Palm Bay but has moved to the Orlando area to attend college and to be closer to a bigger car scene.  Macie attends the University of Central Florida where she is currently studying Exercise Science. Ms. Watkins didn't grow up with a family that was huge into cars, but she tells us, "I always had an interest in cars when I was growing up.  I owned a huge Hot Wheels collection and loved playing racing video games."  Later on in life, an ex-boyfriend of hers liked the car scene, so that helped pique her interest even more.  "I started liking the look of Stanced cars and began following them on Instagram for inspiration," Macie explained.

Macie had started out doing some Fitness and Portrait modeling when she was just 14, so when the opportunity presented itself to model with a friends car, she jumped on it.  Eventually, she tried modeling at shows in front of a lot of people, and that helped her to meet more people in the car scene and got her fully involved. Macie's first ShockerRacing Girls shoot was scheduled for a few weeks back, but the photographer, Trevor Proctor, got into a car accident on his way to the shoot so it got postponed.  Then the car that was scheduled for this shoot could not make it at the last minute, so @newbraza was able to scoop his uncle's Porsche 911 for Macie to shoot with.

We asked Ms. Watkins was sparked her interest in ShockerRacing and the ShockerRacing Girls, "I wanted to be a part of a community that supports women car enthusiasts and models.  A company that brings all girls together instead of competing against each other in the car scene," was her response.  Here at ShockerRacing, this has always been our #1 goal.  We have always wanted to build a team of motivated and respectable women in the automotive world, and we always love to hear that people are noticing this.
