Tara MacLeod

Type of Racing: Stock Car

Race Series: Late Model Challenge Cup

Introduction: Tara started racing in 1993, her boyfriend and his father bought a Thunder Car for $500 and Tara thought it would be fun to drive it. She begged & pleaded until they finally gave in figuring she would get scared the first time out, then Dwayne could drive but he had been the nice guy.

But it backfired, Tara having no racing background at all, had rode horses for nine years but love the horsepower of the race car. She's never looked back. After three years in Thunder Car, Tara and her team made the leap to Late Model. At the time it seemed like a good idea, but the budget & learning curve was much bigger than they had anticipated.

The team & Tara struggled for a couple of seasons, looking to generate sponsorship & seat time. In 2000 everything started to payoff. Tara was finally comfortably in the car & the car was running great, she posted 13 wins, and 3 DNF's.

Current Season: This season Tara and her team are competing in the Late Model Challenge Cup which makes stops at nine stops at Kawartha & Mosport Speedways and one stop at Cayuga. The season did not get off to a great start. Although the set up on the car on the motor felt really good, the second heat of the first night saw Tara experience the worst wreck she'd been in. A car pushed her into the front straight wall and kept it pinned there until the tires climbed the wall and sent Tara & the car crashing through 150 feet of fence and the started stand before coming to rest back on the front straight.

Luckily Tara emerged from the wreck with out a scratch. A spector and two starters were taken to the hospital and later released. After fixing the car and the motor Tara is back on track and sitting 5th in the Challenge Cup points race, and is looking forward to finishing in the top five.

Racing Goals: Tara would like to be competing in Canada's premier racing division CASCAR, and has had an opportunity to drive one this past summer. Tara runs a program for Castrol call the GTX Top Tech program for high school students who win a day at a CASCAR race and Tara and her husband/Crew Chief take them through the day of practice, qualifying and the race. It's been a great experience.

Personal: Tara and Dwayne were high school sweethearts and have been married for 8 years. With their racing, personal appearance and Top Tech schedule there is no time for children, but they do have a dog Harley & three cats.

Special Thanks to: Special thanks to the entire crew for your tireless effort into my passion, without you there would be no MacLeod Racing team. To my mother in law who feeds us while we work on the car. Thank you also to our great sponsors who make it possible for MacLeod Racing to go racing. For 2002 they include Rubbermaid, Sharpie, Husky & Stanley Tools, Instant Custom Signs and Fast Eddie Race Wear.
