Redding student races her blown alcohol dragster in Fall Classic event @ Redding Dragstrip this weekend

MakinnaClevengerMakinna Clevenger will be racing a 1700 hp, 200+ mph car at the Redding Dragstrip this weekend for the Fall Classic race, which starts today and runs through Sunday.
This is from her website: “At ten years old, Makinna started racing junior dragsters and has enjoyed many successes over the years. Recently she completed the required passes for her NHRA competition license in her family’s blown alcohol dragster. Attending races has been a family affair for the 18-year-old Shasta College student. For her 16th birthday she acquired a Competition license for her 1,700 horse power blown alcohol dragster. Then a year later she made the next move towards her Advanced E.T. license, making her fastest career pass at over 200 mph.”
She’ll be racing in the same class as her dad. Should be an interesting weekend of racing!
