Coming out of north Orange County and the sand drag ranks to Top Alcohol in the NHRA is a new driver this 2013 season. Her name is Ashley Sanford, she just turned 19 and will pilot an A-Fueler in the Top Alcohol class.
She resides in Fullerton, California, and last year, Ashley drove in sand drags in Top Alcohol and has a decade of experience in the sand. She will debut on concrete with the A-Fueler at the Winternationals February 14-17 at Pomona. Other than the surface, the other changes for her will be the fact she will be driving a unblown nitro dragster compared to her blown alcohol sand dragster. She is acquiring her license this week in Las Vegas.
The operation will be a family affair and the team will have sponsorship help. Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish will be her primary marketing partner – the Gelish product is a hardy nail polish. They will also continue to have Lucas Oil as an associate sponsor. Other supporters include Roscoe’s Famous Deli, Heroes Bar & Grill, The D Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, and the Golden Gate Hotel and Casino.
Her ultimate aspirations are to drive the fastest cars in the world: Top Fuel. She likes boating and wakeboarding, plus loves dogs. If you want to follow her, you can go to social medias like Twitter and Facebook. She seems to have drive, determination and oh yes, looks, to become a success in drag racing.
