Type of Racing: Drag Racing

Race Series: IHRA Top Dragster, NHRA Jegs Mail Order Quick 32


Introduction: Becky has always been interested in cars and was first exposed to drag racing through her brother and husband. She received a 1960 Corvette pro street project car for her 25th wedding anniversary that she and husband Fred finished in just nine months, and then spent four years driving and showing the car.

She quickly tired of sitting at car shows, so she decided to race her Corvette at a local track. In her first race, Becky made it to the final four. That was it. She was instantly hooked and has never looked back! That year, she ran from the high 11's to 9's in the Vette, and won the Street Machine 1 Class at the Indy Good Guys Hot Rod Nationals in 1997.
Wanting to go even faster, she bought a 1962 Chevy Belair which ran 8.40s at 160 mph. She was low qualifier in C Gas, and placed as runner up at the Good Guys Indy in 1998 and 1999.

In 2000 she traded the Vette to Jacklin Gebhardt for a rear engine dragster and began running NHRA Super Comp. She promptly went three rounds in her first race. After two years of going rounds at various divisional and national meets, she tried IHRA Top Dragster, and place as runner up at her first Top Dragster race in the Eddyville IA Division 5 HCS race in 2001. For 2002 she decided to run the full points series in T/D.

Current Season: After updating her car with new body and paint, Becky went more rounds in 2003, and set a new personal best of 7.22 @ 185 in the quarter mile, and 4.48 @ 159 in the eighth mile. Her new Book Racing, 632 cubic inch engine certainly was up to the task! . She also had an r/u finish at Cedar Falls Iowa IHRA Division 5 Pro-Am point's race. She finished eighth in Division 5, qualified at several national meets, and was in the top 40 in national points until the last race at Rockingham.

In 2004, Becky will be running at least 6 IHRA national meets, and 7 IHRA Mr. Gasket pro-am points races. Becky will also be running the Sloans Quick 8 series at the newly remodeled Midstate Dragway at Havana, Ilinois, as well as several NHRA Jegs Mail Order Super Quick races. Husband Fred has also added fogger nitrous systems to both motors, which should put her in the 6's for this year.

Racing Goals: Becky's goal is to win the IHRA Top Dragster Division 5 title. She also plans to run more out of division races and in IHRA national meets.

Personal: Becky is 53 and has been married to husband Fred for 34 years. The couple has one daughter, Michelle, and two grand kids, Kyle and Kasey. Becky has been a veterinary technician at the University of Illinois for 28 years.

Special Thanks to: Becky would like to thank her sponsors for 2004: Jacklyn Gebhardt's Trailer Sales, Gebhardt's Pro Cars, Kustom Sign and Graphics, TNT Performance Transmissions, United Fuel, and Book Racing Engines.
