We wish that our grandmother’s could be like this lady!
Most drag strips are populated by men both young and old burning rubber and racing down a straightaway looking to achieve the fastest time. It’s not often that you see women, let alone older women, at the strip in the cockpit of a car ready to race.
Well, that’s exactly what this self-proclaimed “sixty-some-odd” year old lady behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG with slicks was doing there. Her AMG is not exactly stock either, boasting about 475 horsepower with a few bolt-on upgrades.
She’s not afraid to put the pedal to the metal and has been doing it since she was a teenager. During the drag race, she was able to pull off an 11.72-second run at 119.68 mph run. Her husband also came with his ten-second Dodge Viper to lay down the rubber. Unfortunately for him, he seems to have broken a driveshaft.
We hope to see more of her racing down the drag strip in the future!
