SCÜNCI NO DAMAGE HAIR TIES

"I have to wear a helmet, but my hair still gets in my eyes — it'll do that when you're clocking 240. These don't have metal, so they hold back my hair with-out digging in." ($2.99;

CHANEL PATENT-LEATHER CLUTCH

"I've learned the value of downsizing — the bigger the bag, the more you put in it. I never have to dig to find what I need in this little clutch, which is crucial for me, because somehow, even when I'm not racing, I'm always in a hurry." ($3150; 800-550-0005)

MOTOROLA Q

"I hate carrying a computer. This phone is thin and cool-looking, and it has e-mail. I talk to my folks the most — they're in Illinois, and I live in Arizona, and I'm constantly on the road." ($199–$499;

NARS BLUSH IN ORGASM

"I wear minimal makeup when I'm at the track, but if it's a big race with cameras everywhere, I'll brush some of this on. It makes me feel awake and sun-kissed. And you gotta love the name." ($25;

NETJETS PRIVATE JET

"There are only six or seven days each month when I'm not traveling. Seriously. I use these jets to get around, and I bring lots of gossip and fashion magazines to pass the time. I'm so into big, girly bubble skirts right now." (from $119,900; 866-JET-1400)

HUSBAND

"He balances me out. He's relaxed, and I'm high-strung. He's great to talk to, especially when I don't want to think about work." (sorry, not available in stores)

LEWIS CELLARS CABERNET SAUVIGNON

"This is how I slow it down after a long day: I drink a glass right before dinner, then I watch The Office — especially any scenes with Dwight, who slays me — and then off to bed." (priced according to vintage; lewiscellars.com)
