Kaitlyn Vincie Bio/Wiki
She was born on 10 December 1987 in Harrisonburg, Virginia, as Kaitlyn Anne Vincie. Vincie spent her early childhood in Bridgewater until she entered high school. However, she continued her high school education in another city in Virginia, Warrenton, where her family had moved their residence.
Kaitlyn is the second daughter of John and Margaret Vincie. Information about her background shows that her grandparents had a career in education. Her grandmother taught fifth grade while her grandfather worked at a faculty of Bridgewater College.
Like many journalists today, Vincie’s passion for journalism began at a young age. During her high school days at Fauquier High School, Warrenton, Vincie was an active athlete who competed both on and off the track. She even led the school’s wrestling team for four years.
Their credentials on the racetrack include first place at the 800-meter event of the AAA Cedar Run District. Vince graduated from Fauquier University in 2006 and went to Christopher Newport University to study communications.
In addition to what she had learned from the four walls of the college classroom, it was opportune for Vince to be supervised by journalist Al Pearce, who provided her with detailed information about her journalistic career. She received her bachelor’s degree in 2010.
Vince’s interest in stock race cars increased during her internship program at Christopher Newport University’s athletics department. While writing an article on the gender gap in motor racing, focusing on female NASCAR star Danica Patrick, Vince secured a pit lane pass for the NASCAR All-Star Race.
As mentioned earlier, Vince’s first job was at Langley Speedway. Her duties included interviewing drivers for Speedway TV. Her work was broadcast on WSKY TV, a local channel.
While on the speedway, Vince took a second job as a waiter to increase her income. She worked three nights a week.
With a slow start to her journalistic career, Kaitlyn tried to improve her chances by publishing her own NASCAR reports entitled “Hot for NASCAR” on YouTube. The Vlog included her attitude to the Sprint Cup Series and her interview with the drivers.
Fortunately, NASCAR fans loved it as the blog became very popular. To improve the quality of her videos, Vince studied computer software so she could edit her videos. Soon the Stock Car Racing website SceneDaily started publishing the videos on their website and gave Vince the hoped-for career boost.
Kaitlyn worked for Langley Speedway for another year before he left in 2012. She then worked as a managing director for a tanning salon in Newport News, Virginia.
Her reportage work attracted Speed’s attention, who invited her to an interview to fill the position of Social Media Reporter. Vince passed the interview and moved to Charlotte, North Carolina in the summer of 2012 to start her new job.
Since then, Kaitlyn has only progressed in her career. With such inspiring success, many NASCAR fans are interested in knowing what her life looks like when she’s not on set, and that brings us to the theme of her romantic life.

In May 2017 Kaitlyn published a very personal story of her life and relationship on a blog by Jeff Gluck. In her story, Vince revealed that she met Blake “at work and on the track in an unusual restaurant near New Hampshire Motor Speedway (just her traditional NASCAR love story)”.
As Vince tells in her story, she and Blake never planned to become parents until 2017, hence the choice of the name “Kadence” for her little girl. Vince explained that the name was derived from a musical term “cadenza” which means rhythm. She explained that the baby changed the rhythm of her life.
