As a female in a male-dominated sport of drag racing, becoming a standout and respected participant isn’t without it’s trials and errors. Recently, “the BLOCK” took some time; getting the scoop on Brenda Grubbs as she is becoming someone to look at in 2012. Her career spans from the late ’90s where she began her efforts on the track, of course. Driving a 1969 Camaro in the Stock Eliminator Class of the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA), she competes throughout the eastern half of the country.
Drag racing has been and probably always will be a popular sport. With off-the-shelf components becoming readily available, drag racing has actually become quiet easy to get involved with. If you have the urge to put the pedal down and go fast, drag racing is a legal and safe way to execute such a dream. However, as a female, like Brenda Grubbs, getting your foot in the door can be an up hill battle.

All in all, it’s a thorough interview covering all aspects of being a driver and making rounds in the world of drag racing as a female. It certainly deserves respect.
