The thrill of racing for Mary Anne is
the speed and the competition. Also the simplicity and beauty of a
Sprint Car - heading into a corner at full speed and knowing that the
car will turn. Her most exciting racing moment was '03 360 Sprint
win at Laurens County Speedway and racing a 410 Sprint in western PA.
She's most proud that they have been competitive in most of the
divisions that they've raced in doing it pretty well on their own.

- still winning at 50+!
Of racing, Mary Anne says, "Support your
local race track! Dirt Track racing and VMS are the best kept
secrets around. Great value for your entertainment dollar.
Cheaper than most movies and much more interesting!".
