Shea got her start driving ATVs then got a call to drive a monster truck.
"I preceded to go along with it. I did it for about three and a half years and I took off to get married and have a baby and I'm back behind the wheel and what's even cooler is I drive the world's largest ATV," Shea said.

She added balancing life and competing can be a challenge.
I'm a mom I'm on the go twenty-four seven my son is ten months old he travels with me everywhere," Shea said.

However, she has the support she needs.
"Luckily I have my family backing me and my family is with me all the time," Shea said.

She added her goal is to win one of the competitions during the rest of the tour.
