    Met Melanie Troxel a few years back at the winternationals in Pomona. As soon as my daughter saw her she said "Girls do this too?", I said "Yeah, why wouldn't they?" And she fell in love with Melanie. Melanie talked to her for a few and took a pic with her. One of my daughters prized possessions. I don't have to beg her to go to the races with me at all. Her 13th b-day present is going to Pomona on Sunday to see the finals.

    3 boys and my girl is the only one that will go to the races with me. :)

    Actually she did more than testing, she drove Larry Frazier's T/F in the early 90's at the gator nationals. I think she went a round or 2.

    In 94 we where pitted next to a car from Europe, her name was Vivet Avarstat, I'm sure I didn't spell that rite, She was good driver and looked as good as she drove. JC
     
  19. Great post! I don't know how I missed this originally.

    I got to meet and have a conversation with Shirley Muldowney late Sunday night at the Detroit Autorama. Very nice and classy lady!

    I love Shirley Muldowney because she did it back before people were opinion polled, packaged and marketed like laundry soap, and she did it because she wanted to be the best. How quaint.
    Why do we think that the economy should be real when everything else around us is fake? End of geezer rant.

    Here's someone special you all need to read and know about..... Tina Stull. She has done an awesome job honoring our Veterans by distributing over 21,000 FREE divisional NHRA race tickets to our Veterans. However, the current economic woes have taken their toll with her sponsorship... Please check out her website and show your support for her the same way she continues to support our troops. Thanks!

    Thanks for remembering my beautiful and talented mother, Judi Boertman.
    Here's an old newspaper clip from early in her career...(by the way...please pay no attention to the highly inaccurate photo caption.. we had nothing to do with what the author wrote.)

    Please list women who actually build engines and/or cars.

    Kim Lahaie/Richards swings a pretty mean wrench.

    I believe Barb Hamilton also built and did the maintainance on her Willys Gasser.

    Yes, i would say Kim LaHaie is probably the best in the bunch (in my opinion) because she actually works on the engine. And i'm not at all ashamed to say i could probably learn alot from her.


    But who else?
     
  30. Does anyone have pictures of Amy Faulk's Funny car, as well as the rear engine dragster.
    Lets not forget all the fine work she has done with S.E.M.A.
