Hot off a runner-up finish in St. Louis last weekend at the regional event, Rachel Meyer is ready to get back behind the wheel of her NTK Sensor Specialist dragster for one last race before she hangs up her helmet and firesuit for the 2021 season. She will be competing alongside Julie Nataas in the OTG dragster at this weekend’s NHRA Texas FallNationals located outside of Dallas.
“Dallas, my last chance to finish the season off strong… a lot of things come to mind while going into this race such as what I need to do to solidify the championship, what my competitors need to do to pass me, or to not pass me. It my last shot of the year, we have worked so hard and stayed on top all season that I’m hoping we can continue the success into this last race.” Rachel said.
“For now, all of my focus is on racing, but as soon as the race is over, I know I will be filled with emotions, good and bad, but I will be ready to focus on my wedding coming up November 6th. I just want to give my crew guys a big thank you: Rich, Ted, Kevin, JJ, Howard, Craig, Caleb, Rick, the TA interns, Megan, mom, and most importantly, my dad, for all their hard work and dedication this year. I could not have even won a single round without them. I also want to thank my sponsors; NGK Spark Plugs and NTK sensors for sticking with Randy Meyer Racing another year and for choosing me to sport the NTK Sensors on the side of the car this year, as well as Lucas Oil, Technician.Academy, Gunk, ARP, Jiffy-Tite, Aeroquip, Waterman, and the rest of the Randy Meyer Racing Team partners.”
The team will kick off qualifying on Friday and will begin eliminations on Saturday. Watch the event live on NHRA.tv and check our social media pages for round updates.
