Anderson Family Dragster

A/Fuel Dragster

The AFD team is a family orientated drag racing team that is focused on creating an enjoyable racing experience and representing their sponsors in a professional manner while winning races.  It all began with Marina's dad, Scott bringing her to the track as a toddler.  Growing up at the track, she was in her teens when Marina started believing this was what she was meant to do and the dream began.  Scott and Marina showed dedication by working with the help of many of their friends to build this dream from scratch and go race.  It hasn't been an easy road, but through hard work they plan to show dreams can come true.
