SPOTLIGHT ON SPEED: MEGAN MEYER


Racing is definitely in Megan Meyer's genes, with Meyer the daughter of longtime Top Alcohol Dragster owner/driver Randy Meyer.

Megan Meyer got the bug early, making her debut in the Junior Dragster ranks while she was still in elementary school.

Meyer has won two championships in that class and got her feet wet in the highly competitive Super Comp ranks during the 2010 racing season.

“I started when I was 10 years old with Juniors and last year I ran both Junior and Super Comp,'' said Mayer, a recent graduate from Spring Hill High School. “This year will be my last year with Juniors so I'll still run both.''

Meyer was satisfied with her debut in Super Comp and continues to hone her skills in that class.

“It was scary, I was nervous at first, but now I'm used to it,'' Meyer said. “Now it just makes the Juniors seem so much slower and a lot more easier.''

Meyer eventually has her sights set even higher.

“I hope to do Top Fuel Dragster, but my dad's got the A-Fuel, so I'll probably just drive that in a few years.''
