Race Night, to be released in 2021 is a documentary short exploring the lives of amateur motorcycle racers and their families in the American mid-west. Stepping deep into the fields of Wisconsin, the film acts as a vignette into the life of the Martens family and their daughter Zaria, who races dirt-track motorcycles.
Meet Zaria

Following in her father’s footsteps, Zaria started riding dirt bikes at four years old. She then progressed to racing motocross within a year thereafter and transitioned to flat track racing at age seven. She primarily races the AMA District 16 circuit and the Mama Tried Flat Out Friday series. In 2019 she took the championship in District 16 for Women’s Open class and top-five placement in both Open Amateur and 450cc classes. She currently holds the most first-place wins in Flat Out Friday’s Women’s class and was the first female from that program to advance to the Open Am class-main finishing 3rd. She dreams of one day competing professionally like her role model, the late Charlotte Kainz, #35L.

Zaria has had the unique opportunity to train privately with Jeffery Carver #23, Sandriana Shipman #55, and Brian Bartlow. She hopes for more training opportunities in the near future.

Outside of racing, Zaria’s second passion is inspiring the youth riders in the racing community. She enjoys taking time to talk with them, encouraging them, and mentoring them. At the track, if you see Zaria it is almost guaranteed that you will see the younger generation of riders near-by.
