Hometown: Wilkes-Barre, PA
Rebecca Kivak is the lead editor of Skirts and Scuffs. Rebecca lives in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., about an hour away from Pocono Raceway. Though residing near one of the sport’s most unique tracks, Rebecca didn’t become a NASCAR fan until 2006. The first race she watched was the Nextel Cup race in Richmond, Va. From then on, she was hooked. Once racing got into her blood, it was impossible to ignore. She has attended races at various tracks and has represented Skirts and Scuffs at Pocono, her home track.
Rebecca works as a news copy editor and page designer at The Citizen's Voice newspaper in Wilkes-Barre, and contributes to the paper's Pocono Raceway coverage. As Skirts and Scuffs creator Katy Lindamood’s left (or is it right?) hand, Rebecca relies on her journalism background in performing her duties for the site. This includes working with staff writers on story ideas and editing their work, to writing her observations on the race that was in her weekly Motor Mouth column, as well as compiling the TV schedule and chronicling the progress of IndyCar driver Danica Patrick in NASCAR. Born with the gift of gab, she enjoys getting the word out about NASCAR and talking with fans about their favorite drivers and hot topics in racing.
She graduated from Penn State University in 2004 with Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and Economics. In addition to NASCAR, Rebecca also follows IndyCar and other motorsports.
