No Slowing for the Cone Zone The McKee Autocross Family

By Blake Tatum

If I could give you a roadmap that would lead you down a path where your teenage kids enjoy your company and look forward to spending weekends with you would you follow it? Of course you would, as parents there is nothing more precious than the time we spend with our kids. The McKee family has such a roadmap and it leads to an empty parking lot.

The McKee’s are a racing family. They consist of husband Andy, wife Teresa, and the two daughters Alana (13) and Erika (15). They spend about every other weekend 75% of the year traveling, pulling their trailer to Autocross events. Although the SCCA ProSolo is their favorite type of event, they attend local San Francisco Region events, National Events, and American Autocross Series events. Their vehicle of choice is a highly modified 1993 Mazda RX7 and a 2003 Emmick Kart. They have 14 national titles to their name (Andy 10, Teresa 4), and a podium finish for the oldest daughter at Nationals. In addition to the national titles they have a lifetime of memories that no amount of money can buy.
