I AM OFFICIALLY LICENSED!

This past weekend was one of the best of my life I'm sure.  There has been so many years of hard work leading up to this and finally it happened.  The recap is that we made one run on Friday after the Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car Qualifying session.  I went to about 1000 ft before lifting to get a 6.27 @ 185mph.  I was excited that I jumped from a 6.98 to a 6.27 but at the same time I was disappointed that what I needed to ...

Spring 2017

Posted by Doreen Anderson on May 27, 2017 at 1:25 AM

Hi!

There has already been so much going on in 2017!  The very fun ride of the Search for a Champion has come to an end.  We are really honored to be a part of #TeamChampion for the year since we were one of the twenty five finalists.  So many people were voting everyday and I appreciate you all.  It was a long road for us all to remember to vote and then wait to hear results but so much fun too.  I'm sure my many vote reminders got to be annoying to some. ;)...

One Step at a Time - Fall 2016

Posted by Doreen Anderson on October 25, 2016 at 11:25 AM

I am excited about the progress we have seen over this past year. There have been bumps in the road and many lessons learned for the whole team. I have always been honest about how tough this journey is. It's fun and difficult all at the same time. I like to say if it were easy everyone would do it. Trust me, growing up around drag racing it always seemed like a dream that would never happen to me. You can make it happen though and no matter how long it takes we will keep working at it....

Spring 2016

Wow! I can't believe it's almost June and Memorial Day weekend is around the corner.  This year has seriously been flying by already.  I think it's safe to say that I am beyond addicted to this sport and so thankful for the many friends I have made.  After winding down from the holidays I enjoyed my annual trip to Detroit, Michigan where we go to the Autorama car show in February.  Some friends of my dad's brought a car this year and w...

PRI 2015

Posted by Doreen Anderson on December 9, 2015 at 8:55 AM

Every year we attend the PRI show in Indianapolis.  It's always a great time to catch up with people in racing.  I have even met a few people who I now call good friends in previous years.  This year is extra special to us because we are displaying our car in the lobby of the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.  It's right across the street from the convention center.  We hope to see you all there.  I plan on being in the lobby by the car 8-9am and 1-2pm on both Frid...

Please click the link to see the Anderson Family Dragster's first time on the track!  It was a really exciting day to get to see the car on the track and for me to get to drive it.  I feel so lucky to have all the people around me help over the past five years to get us here.  It was really a surreal day.  I can't wait to go even further and faster the next time at the track.


Thanks for your su...

Summer 15

Posted by Doreen Anderson on August 28, 2015 at 1:00 AM
The 2015 season has been one of preparation and learning. Taking in as much information as we can to make sure we send the car down the track safely and gathering all the necessary tools to set up our team for racing. We are so lucky to have so many different people willing to help in any way to get us going. A couple of years ago I made the decision that I wanted to license in my car. I knew we weren't going to go racing if we didn't build our own car and I also knew I didn't want to licens... Read Full Post »
