She might not be Dannica Patrick - at least not yet. But one 11-year-old Candor girl is on the fast track to racing success.

Meckenzie Marsh races slingshots, a kind of go-kart that can reach speeds of up to 80 miles per hour on the dirt tracks she frequents, and she's been doing it, since she was 4 years old.

She's won several races, and appeared yesterday on the Ellen Degeneres show. That's where Marsh met celebrities such as Justin Beiber, Ellen, and her idol, Danica Patrick.

"Just watching my dad got me fired up, and made me want to do that too and he finally got me a go kart, it was just hard for me to let it go last year." said Meckenzie Marsh "I'm just so proud of her, she deserves what she's getting, she really has dedicated herself to racing, striving to be the best and she's doing quite well. " said Richard Marsh, Meckenzie's Father.

Meckenzie says that she wants to go on to racing in NASCAR someday.
