Battle of the Sexes participants were able to choose from two different bracket style classes; Car Chix Pro (11.49 & Quicker) and Car Chix Street (11.50 & Slower).  Car Chix had fourteen women enter the race.  In addition, Car Chix delivered on an epic husband wife grudge match between Joe Zolper of Garage Squad and Jennifer Zolper of Car Chix with two blown alcohol door cars!

“This was the first event we have held at Great Lakes Dragaway in about 7 years,” explained Car Chix President and Founder, Jeanette DesJardins, “All the racers had fun, the spectators came out and had a great time, the staff and crew were amazing.  All in all, we were very happy with the turnout and look forward to doing it even bigger and better in 2019.”


The Car Chix Battle of the Sexes Event will return in 2019.  Stay tuned later in the year for announcements on the dates.  The next race in the 3-race series is the Car Chix Ladies Only Drag Race & Breast Cancer Fundraiser at Byron Dragway in Byron, Illinois on August 18th!
