Kaylee Bryson, hailing from Muskogee, Oklahoma, made waves with her impressive performance throughout the season. She completed three USAC Silver Crown feature races with Sam Pierce Racing (SPR) in 2022, including a career-defining performance on the Springfield Mile. Despite a broken rocker arm early in the race, she dominated the Bettenhausen 100 by qualifying on the front row, leading 72 laps, and finishing fifth with only seven cylinders.

Kaylee  Bryson’s consistency and determination paid off. As one of only five drivers to start all 11 series feature events in 2023, she secured a fifth-place finish in the overall standings. But her achievement went beyond points – she became the first Oklahoman to be named USAC Silver Crown’s top Rookie and the first woman to earn Rookie of the Year honors in the 68-year history of the United States Auto Club (USAC).
