Teen female drag racer finds inspiration behind the wheel


You won’t see Shelby Hoffmeyer doing the typical things a young teen does on the weekends. She would rather be on the race track further diversifying the gender lines in the sport of drag racing. With inspiration as her guide, Shelby finds racing to be a motivational experience that empowers her to believe in herself and what she is doing. Our students reporters at Fraser High School in Fraser, MI profiled Shelby during one of her races last year.
