Twenty-three year old phenom Lindsey Wood added to her impressive
racing resume last weekend with a Super Comp victory at the NHRA LODRS
event at No Problem Raceway in Belle Rose, LA. For Wood, it was her
second consecutive LODRS win at the Louisiana facility, as she captured
the event title last season in Top Alcohol Dragster. A final round
triumph over former NHRA World Champion Tommy Costales marked Wood’s
ninth consecutive round win at the facility between the two classes.
Lindsey Wood, a young woman from McAlpin, FL, started her racing career
in the Junior Dragster ranks thirteen years ago. In her tenure in
junior dragster competition, she amassed one of the most impressive
records in the history of the class, including 57 bracket and index
wins and 17 heads-up triumphs. In 2003 she made the move to Super Comp
competition, and continued her success and growth as a competitor over
the next three seasons. In the 8.90 class, she captured a Gator
Nationals title, a handful of divisional victories, and earned a top
ten national finish in the ultra-competitive NHRA Super Comp ranks.
Last season, Wood jumped at the opportunity to team with the Darien
& Meadows A/Fuel Dragster team and ran a full Top Alcohol Dragster
schedule. While Lindsey and the team enjoyed flashes of brilliance,
including the ‘07 No Problem LODRS victory, the team struggled for much
of the season, and the partnership dissolved.
