Treager, born May 24, 1987, started her racing career at Junior Raceway Park in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the young age of seven. Under the direction of Alf Gebhardt, Kristin quickly excelled and found a passion for the sport. Since then, Kristin has furthered her racing education by completing the Skip Barber Racing School programs at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Road Atlanta, and Sebring International Raceway. She has also obtained national licenses from the International Motorsports Association, Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile, and Porsche Club of America. Kristin holds five championships including most recently the 2013 National Points Championship for the Porsche Club of America Cup Car Challenge in GTC4. Past championships include the JRP series championship, Oklahoma Bandelero championship, COMMA production Stock A championship, and the El Sol y La Luna 6 Hour Endurance race championship.
In 2012 and 2013, Kristin was awarded the OG Racing “Outstanding Driver” award. During a partial season in 2012 and a full season in 2013, Kristin obtained 10 first place finishes and 30 podium finishes in GTC4. She also set record laps in her class at Kansas Motor Speedway and NOLA Motorsports Park. Kristin was awarded the Worker’s Choice Award 3 times in 2013 at Road Atlanta, Putnam Park, and Hallett Motor Racing Circuit. In 2013, Kristin participated in two IMSA GT3 USA race weekends at Road America and Road Atlanta. She finished in 3rd place in Round 9, Round 15, and Round 16.

In 2014, Treager signed with Wright Motorsports, a back to back championship winning team in the IMSA GT3 USA series. As a part of the Women in the Winner’s Circle campaign, Kristin was selected to receive the Women’s Sports Foundation Project Podium grant by legendary female driver Lyn St. James and her committee. Treager had an impressive rookie season in the 2014 GT3 USA series. She had 4 podium finishes and a total of 9 top 5 finishes in the Gold Division. Kristin’s 2014 season was cut short by a catastrophic accident at Road America in which she was hit on the last lap of the race.
