Hey everybody! My website was due for a little make-over, so welcome to the “new look” here at annabethbarnes.com! Keep in mind that we are still loading content onto the site (it’s still kind of under construction!) but we wanted to go ahead and launch the new look. We plan on offering up a lot of photos, video and racing news — plus, we will be offering new merchandise and giving away cool stuff from time to time — so we hope you visit us often, and invite your friends to visit too! I’m very excited about the new site AND I’m always grateful for the love and support I get from all you guys. Again, welcome to the new-and-improved annabethbarnes.com. Now let’s go racin!!!
