American open wheel racing lies in the very core of Carmen Sienna's repertoire, with Carmen falling in love with the high-speed, dangerous style of racing all the way back in 2003, but it wouldn't be until 2019 that her racing career began to seriously incorporate it into her resume.
Sienna's esports career, instead, started as most do, in GT cars. In 2011, at the age of 15, she entered what was then the AUEC Endurance Championship, piloting a Chevrolet Corvette C6.R to wins at Daytona, and Indianapolis, en route to a second place in class points. The following season, a switch to the Honda HSV-010 GT saw her win total more than double, with five wins in 14 races securing her first career championship in 2012.
Despite spending the better part of a decade in endurance racing, splitting her time between GT cars and top-flight prototypes, Sienna wasn't happy with the environment she was in, making the pivot away from the Gran Turismo scene, and into iRacing, where she immediately began compiling records in her favorite style of racing, accumulating over 600 starts across various competitions prior to the formation of ABN in late 2021.
When ABN was formed, Sienna put her racing career on the back burner, focusing her craft on broadcasting and letting other talents shine on track. It would be a year and a half before she would once again compete, this time within her own realm as a driver, not as a director or commentator, which saw her win on her ABN "debut" at Chicagoland.
- Carmen has 625+ starts in the Dallara IR-18 dating back to April, 2019. 34 of those starts have turned into wins.
- Carmen is 1/8th Eastern Cherokee, and represents her tribe's flag instead of the American banner.
- Carmen's made only one career start at her home track of Kentucky Speedway, a 6th place finish in the HTL 8-Pack Challenge.
