On Tuesday, TV Shows Ace got the chance to talk to Amber Balcaen of Racing Wives. Amber was on Season 1 of this hit show on CMT. She wasn’t actually a wife, but instead is a female race car driver and fit on the show perfect.
Amber Balcaen talks joining Racing Wives
If you noticed, Amber Balcaen was the only one on the show who was a female race car driver. When asked about how she got cast on the show, it was because of Samantha Busch. Theses two became friends when they were working on a pilot for another show. Amber explained that this one didn’t happen.
After that, Samantha reached out to Amber. She modeled for Samantha’s boutique and they talked about her racing for KBM. When Samantha heard about Racing Wives, some of the wives couldn’t do the show. She thought Amber would be a great fit. Amber loved the idea and the rest is history.

Wanted to take a moment to recap on the season finale of @racingwives. When you only get a few chances to prove yourself (and do what you love), it’s really tough when luck is not on your side. It’s natural to wanna ask “why” when things don’t go your way… but some times shit just isnt easy, and the answer to that “why” may not be realized till much later. My racing career definitely hasn’t been an easy one. I’ve had to fight a lot. Alway being behind the 8 ball because of lack of funding. But it’s been this way since day one in gokarts, so I know I am build for this. I know I can still find a way to win and come out on top. I am built to overcome adversity. I have, and I will continue to. As the 2019 race season slowly closes out, I am now focusing on finding sponsors for the 2020 race season. I really believe 2020 is gonna be my best year yet, I just need to find that big sponsor to partner with me to make it all happen. I will be grinding every day to get it. A quick thanks to @samanthabusch for introducing me to @cmt And @kbmteam and for believing in me! I am so grateful for the opportunity to race for you, learn from Kyle, and be apart of a National TV show! Thank you to @ksdtcpa & Glenn McLoed & Sons for sponsoring my race with KBM. And Thank you to everyone who watched the show and continue to support me! At the end of the day I know I have the best people in my corner that show me endless love and support and for that I am so grateful. But I still got a lot left in me. This is only the beginning. I’m not done yet. #motovationmonday #sponsorAB
Updates and chance for Season 2
Right now, Amber Balcaen of Racing Wives is still working hard to get sponsorship. She is hoping to get that taken care of for the 2020 racing season. This last year she did a couple of races for KBM, plus another one. She just had a bad year for luck. Amber is very optimistic about the next year of racing.
Amber also shared that she stays in touch with the other girls from the show. She will be attending Sam’s big Bundle of Joy event that is coming up.
As of right now, Racing Wives has not been renewed or canceled. CMT hasn’t made a decision. Amber says that she is in for another season if it works out that way. She is hopeful they will renew Racing Wives for Season 2.
If you want to keep up with Amber Balcean she does a great job of sharing on her Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
