Meet the World’s Youngest Female Monster Truck Driver
Even before she was old enough to legally drive a car, Rosalee Ramer knew how to make her 10,000-pound truck do exactly what she wanted.
“If you’re gonna tell me that I can’t do something, I’m gonna show you that I can,” says Rosalee Ramer — a claim that she has more than backed up. After learning to drive from her father, professional monster truck driver Kelvin Ramer, Rosalee turned pro herself — at the tender age of fourteen.
Despite being underestimated by some in the monster truck community, Ramer continues to pursue her passion. "The first thing I do is go out and hit anything anyone thinks I can't hit and then I get to watch them kind of destroy their trucks trying to do one better than me," says Ramer, who is now attending Georgia Tech, studying mechanical engineering.
