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

Posted by Doreen Anderson on May 26, 2016 at 4:45 PM

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 »

CH3NO2

Posted by Doreen Anderson on May 11, 2015 at 11:20 PM
This past week has been one that many of us were waiting for! After many years of fabricating the racecar we now have a nitro burning A-fuel dragster. Last Thursday we had the first official start up where we learned some good things and only started on alcohol. Just two days after that with the guidance of many great teachers we were able to hook up all of the electronics and even put nitro into it. Everything worked really well and it was great to see all of our new toys in action. It's crazy ... Read Full Post »

Spring Fever

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for continuing to share what I am trying to achieve with following my dreams.  Our followers on social media continue to grow.  We are excited with the arrival of spring to continue to make progress.  The racecar is on its way to the shop for custom wheelie bars.  Thanks to Aurora Bearing and Lane Automotive parts I will be able to stay safely on the ground in the dragster.  We have tested for spark and have bought fuel.  We are ready...

Happy Holidays!

Hello,

Now that you are all full from Thanksgiving and super bored that it's the off season it's time to get stuffed with Christmas cookies.  We went to PRI last week and learned a lot.  My dad and I walked around meeting many new friends.  Feel free to send me an email to say hello any time.  I know a few people have and it always makes me feel good to know people are interested in our progress.  We are always looking for more marketing partners which I am goin...
