Ridge in Ladies Street Stock Class, 1998 Championship at Woodland
Raceway in Ladies Street Stock Class, 1999 & 2000 finished 2nd in Points

The thrill of racing for Barbara is
racing door to door with someone and you don't wreck each other.
She's most proud of the respect that she has received from the guys that
she has raced with all of these years. If she breaks something,
she can go to them and they will help her get back into the race.
Of racing, Barbara says, "If you get the
chance to race, give it a try. There is no drug on this earth that
can give you the feel that racing does! Just because you are young
or a girl, don't let anyone tell you that you can't do it because you
can do anything you set your mind to! If it is meant to be it is
up to me!".
