I started racing at 17 years old.  I drove a Modified for my Father starting in 1984 and ending in 1990. My Father builds racing transmissions-Koester Powerglides and is one of our sponsors for our SportMod that I drive now. My best feature finish in the Modified was a 5th and my best points finish was an 8th. I was a fan from 1991 until 2006. I got back into a SportMod owned by my Husband Scot and I. We bought the car in 1998 and still race it today.  It is old by any racing standards but we had our best season yet in 2009.  I finished 2nd, once, I had 3 tops fives and 6 top tens.We finished 8th in points and 3rd in Hard Charger points. We have two awesome sons, Race (11) and Winston (7). They both plan on racing go-karts then the big cars. 

Primary Ride

 My current ride is a Sanger Chassis built around 1997-8. Ed Sanger was my childhood racing hero and still is.  I wanted this car sight unseen because he built it.  We struggled with it for many years due to my in ability to relay what I needed in the car to my crew but this year we found the set up I wanted.  The night I got the second I started 21st out of a 24 car field. The race was shortened to around 8 laps and I drove from 21st to 2nd in that short amount of laps!  I knew we found what I needed then.  Since then when ever we use that set up I have not finished outside of the top 6! Not bad for an old car.  LOL!
