Third generation sand drag racer Ashley Sanford started her drag racing career racing in a kids quad class at age 8. She won the first race she entered. Sanford moved up through the Super Comp and Top Eliminator classes. At age 16 she started driving her father’s championship-winning 3500 horsepower blown alcohol dragster. Ashley drove that car in Top Eliminator before getting the opportunity to drive it in Top Alcohol Dragster trim in 2012. The car covered the 300 ft. track in less than 2.5 seconds at 150+mph.

2013 is Ashley’s first year racing on the asphalt, driving a nitro-injected, 270 mph A/Fuel Dragster. The team is making the transition with assistance from the car’s former owner and driver, 2012 Winternationals finalist Larry Miersch. The Sanfords’ schedule includes around 8 races.
