He made me so comfortable, I wasn't nervous and we had so much fun with it," Erilinne explained, "I gained so much confidence about myself." Here at ShockerRacing we always love to hear when our models can grow and build confidence. This was one of the reasons that the ShockerRacing Girls sparked Erilinne's interest in joining the team she explained, "So many of the ShockerRacing Girls look so confident."

For Erilinne's introduction to SR, she decided to shoot in Milford, Kansas. She met up with Ricardo Luna and his wife's beautiful 100th Anniversary 2014 Dodge Challenger to bring us these amazing shots. They also squeezed in some photos with a badass C7 Corvette from @dannytheredxgod on Instagram. She met Ricardo and his wife, Alexis, through a mutual friend in the car scene. "I have loved Ricardo's photography work for a while now and once we met we just clicked," Erilinne explained.
