Sarah Edwards is currently the fastest female Jet Dragster Driver and Rich is the current World Speed and ET Record Holder in the Jet Funny Car category.
“First off, having the opportunity to race at Summit Motorsports Park is always amazing, but add the fact that it is Friday Night – under the lights after NHRA Nitro Qualifying and then pile on that for the first time I will be running my teammate, makes this Friday night, one to remember.” Sarah said. “Rich was primarily my teacher when it came to learning how to drive a jet, so I am certainly looking forward to lining up next to him and see who’s got the better light.”
