By Sasha Loftis. CREATED Feb 7, 2014

AUSTIN, Texas (KGUN9-TV) - Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords hit a major milestone on Friday.

She started 2014 with skydiving and now, she's driving for the first time since she was shot on January 8, 2011.

She tested her wheels on the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, where her husband Mark Kelly filmed. She said while she may not be Mario Andretti, she handled the road pretty well.
