The 2019 North Central Region Champion and current points leader, Julie Nataas, is looking to collect her first win of the 2020 season this weekend in Bowling Green, KY. Driving for the Randy Meyer Racing Team, with teammate Matt Sackman, Julie will return to Beech Bend Raceway for the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series regional race.
Julie’s last outing resulted in a runner-up finish, losing to teammate Rachel Meyer, in Indianapolis where Julie slowed to a 5.34 ET to Rachel’s 5.27 ET. “We had some issues with the engine that weekend that we couldn’t figure out,” said Julie, “but we got away with it in both the first and second round of eliminations. I’m proud of the team for getting both cars to the final and I finally got to race against Rachel! I look forward to get back in the car and continue to go rounds in Bowling Green.”
This weekend’s event will be the first race of the 2020 season for Matt Sackman with the Randy Meyer Racing Team, who recently made it to the final round in his Hangsterfer’s Top Dragster. The team will get one qualifying session 4pm on Friday, with one more session on Saturday at 12pm before first round at 4pm, followed by second round at 7pm. The finals will be held on sunday at 12pm. Watch the action live at Drag Racer TV here.
