Age: Finally 16 lol

Suspension: Function and Form Type 2
Wheels, Tires: USDM Integra Type R wheels with Falken Ziex ze950 tires

SRI: When did you get into cars?

Rey: I’ve been around cars my whole life being that my dad was a mechanic and is a car enthusiast but I wouldn’t say I was always like this lol. I’d go to the race track with my dad all the time but it wasn’t until we went one evening and I saw a Supra on the way back home. It was the first time I’d ever actually paid attention to a car like that, I was about 9 or 10. I’ll never forget the sound of the car, hearing the blow off valve oh my gosh, and the cleanliness of it. From then on, I knew what I wanted to do.

SRI: How long have you had your Integra?

Rey: The Integra and I have been through a lot. Back in 2014, I got my first car; a white GSR in which I had the B20V originally. Then I sold the GSR shell and decided to start over, so I got a Red LS Integra with a Jap front so I could go LSVtec. However, In the end, I just decided to put on the Type R wheels, Brakes, Valences, Side Skirts, put in some Sparco seats that were given to me as a gift, drop the B20 back in it and call it a day lol. To put it shortly, a very long 3 years.

SRI: What’s your favorite upgrade you’ve done to it thus far?

Rey: Honestly the favorite upgrade I have done to the car, is putting it on Nitrous lol. It’s like Vtec x2!

SRI: Outside of cars, got any hobbies?

Rey: When I’m not working on my teggy or at the shop, I enjoy doing things other girls do pretty much lol. I like having sleepovers, doing my nails, shopping in expensive stores, etc. I also enjoy reading and competing in medical competitions.

SRI: If you didn’t have your Integra, you’d be driving a…?

Rey: This is honestly my favorite question because everyone always assumes I’ve been about Hondas since the beginning lol! If I did not have my Integra, I would definitely be driving an all-black 1998 S14 240sx with a 2JZ.

SRI: Track or show?

Rey: Track. I’ve got the need for speed.

SRI: Describe the feeling of your first race at PBIR.

Rey: My first race at PBIR was definitely nerve wrecking. I raced a Yaris… and I missed 3rd gear and lost! LOL, I cried when I got back to the stands. But then I realized that I’m not going to always win and I got over it.

SRI: Day meet or night meet?

Rey: Being that I’m still under my parent’s supervision, no night meets for me, haha. But I like day meets, that way I can actually see the cars. Artificial light does no justice.

SRI: How important is your date’s car?

Rey: As long as it’s clean and low, I’m good with it.

SRI: What would be your last meal?

Rey: Fried Chicken and gravy from Barbican Square. It’s all I ever want.

SRI: Who is the biggest influence in your life, right now?

Rey: Roger Lobban, my dad, my old man, the real papa bear lol. I would be nothing that I am today without the guidance of him. I wouldn’t even have the amazing opportunity of answering these questions with you guys.

SRI: You get one super power, what is it?

Rey: To remember everything I read, I’d pass my exams with flying colors.

SRI: Favorite TV show?

Rey: Adventure Time

SRI: One thing you couldn’t live without is…?

Rey: My Cell Phone. I go crazy even when it’s only dead.

SRI: Favorite cruising song?

Rey: Fake Love- Drake

SRI: Last movie you watched?

Rey: I watched “Sing” with my best friend.

Don’t get too comfortable with this set-up. Rey and her pops have something cooking on the horizon. Expect her “teggy” to be a whole new animal the next time you see it at the track! Big thanks to Rey for making time with us.
