This summer was a busy one for the race team. After traveling to St. Louis to represent ES Foods at the SNA Conference, the crew headed to Ohio and Dragway 42 for the 5th PDRA race of the season. Danika had a great weekend qualifying for the quarter finals.
August brought the joy of celebrating Danika's 12th birthday as well as the sadness of losing Ricky Miles, Danika's grandfather and Gabe's father. He was a great man and we miss him so much.
GALOT Motorsports Park in Benson, NC was the location of the next race in early Sept but the weather had another plan and the event was rained out.
Next race, the team finally got to race closer to home at the Darlington Dragway Oct. 4-5th. Danika had her best race yet, qualifying for the semi-finals and finishing in the Top 4. Danika also got to wear a new helmet sponsored by Sarah & Geo's Pizza of Ridgeway, SC which was painted by Gabe. Gabe surprised Danika by paying homage to her grandfather with the words "My Pop rides with me" painted on the back.
The team wrapped up their season at the PDRA World Finals in Petersburg, VA at the Virginia Motorsports Park. All their hard work earned Danika the 8th position in her Top Jr. Dragster division of the PDRA. She will be honored along with the other Top 10 in her division at a banquet held in conjunction with the PRI trade show in Indianapolis, IN the weekend of Dec. 13-15th. We are very excited for her and proud of her!
