Personal LifeEdit

Kyra is the youngest daughter of NASCAR Sprint Cup crew chief Mike Ford, and the youngest out of two siblings: Alec and Austin Ford.

Kyra met Denny when Denny was just in his rookie year in the Sprint Cup series in 2006 at Pocono Raceway, where she ended up in Victory Lane as Denny had won that race. Over the course of the summer, Denny and Kyra hung out whenever they could, developing a friendship between the two, and they were able to see each other during the summer and at the Charlotte races (All-Star Race, Coca-Cola 600, Bank of America 500) becuase of Kyra still in school.

It wasn't till the end of the 2010, more specifically at the award ceremony in Las Vegas, Nevada where during his 2nd place speech where he'd asked her out. Kyra ended up saying yes. After that, she was able to go on the road with him full time (since she graduated from highschool in 2010).
