Rhonda Smolenski

Team members helping Rhonda are:  Billy Mattingly, Tommy Smolenski, Brian Jenkins, Steve Barno, Pierre Duvernois, George Ritter.

Rhonda started racing in 1982 at Ohio Valley Dragway because her parents were a big influence with her Dad having a car all her childhood.  Her first win was in 1983 in the Bracket Class at Ohio Valley Dragway.  Career highlights include receiving her first Wally Trophy in 2002, winning the first time at Bowling Green in 2003 the first time she was at the track, plus many other wins.

The thrill of racing for Rhonda is the speed and she loves her V-6.  Her most exciting racing moment was when she leaves the starting line and know she's had a good light and runs her number.  She's most proud of the victory when she received the Wally Trophy and when she won at Beech Bend her first time racing there.

Rhonda's racing heroes are Warren Johnson and Brandon Bernstein.

Of racing, Rhonda says, "It is a great sport and it is safer then the highway!".
