Josette Roach is a 27-year-old from Saint Augustine, Florida. She developed an early interest in the automotive and motorsports industries. This isn’t surprising considering her family was involved in drag racing and the automotive industry long before Josette was alive. Her parents, naturally, were at a race track the day before she was born.

Josette joined up with the Larsen Motorsports team since 2017 - where she went full-time in 2019.
