Audrey Worm, who made her Top Fuel debut in the Leverich Racing dragster at last year’s Reading event, will kick off an ambitious eight-race 2018 campaign and a bid for the Auto Club Road to the Future Award at the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals.
The team will debut its OutrunPD Parkinson's Disease awareness dragster at Gainesville Raceway. The car will be running to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) to fight Parkinson's Disease.
"Parkinson's has affected my family in a big way,” she said. “My grandfather passed away in 2010 from complications, and my father was diagnosed with early onset PD in 2004. It is my mission to raise as much money as possible from the generous fans at NHRA races. One-hundred percent of the donation goes directly to MJFF. All of the cost to run the car are paid for by sponsors, family, and friends."
In addition to the Gainesville event, the team also will compete at both Charlotte events, as well as in Topeka, Norwalk, Epping, Indy, and Reading.
