Wood has changed her main focus in 2008 to the Super Comp category. “Right now I’m content to compete in the sportsman ranks,” she said. “It’s a really great feeling to get a win in Super Comp again. Last year was really hectic and it was an eye-opening experience for me.”

At Belle Rose, Wood proved that she is back as a major player in her K&N Engineering backed Undercover Dragster. “We still have the same 632cc engine which was built by Matt Driskell,” said Wood. “But we have a brand new look.”

There is a new body on her car. “It’s all red carbon,” she said. “It looks great in the sunlight with streaks of red coming through. I wanted red carbon because of the red in the K&N logo and my father’s business logo.”

It’s not only the K&N colors that Wood enjoys. “The K&N air and oil filters are awesome,” she said. “K&N protects my engine from track debris and gives me the great filtration.”

Wood’s next event will be at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee. “I’ve got a car that can win right now,” she said. “It’s all up to me.”
