“Taken at the 2022 NHRA Pep Boys Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway [in Mohnton, PA], I caught the exact moment Brittany Force’s engine blew up in a fireball during Round 2 eliminations against Antron Brown. My dad, brother, daughter, and I all attended the event and participated in the Sunday morning worship service with RFC in the pits before the race.”

Praying with Shane Westerfield; it was the first run of the morning. The weather was beautiful at Lake Ming [in Bakersfield, CA].

“My husband and I at Pacific Raceways in Washington on July 9th for NHRA [Northwest Nationals]. If you zoom in, you can see the reflection of the track in our sunglasses!”

I proposed to my now-wife at SCCA-LOL’s race at Brainerd International Raceway. I arranged for all the Spec Miatas to hold up on the pit lane after coming in from our qualifying session and told my then-fiance to meet me there to “take tire temperatures.” I had hidden her ring in the race car and proposed in front of the stands. (RFC stickers on the b-pillar on each side of the race car.)
