“I started racing because my dad races,” she said. “I asked him if I could race too and he showed me cars for kids. I asked if I could have a junior dragster and he said okay.” That was three years ago, now the Norwalk, Ohio girl has a racing resume featuring IHRA and NHRA events.

“Last year I attended the Eastern Conference Finals for Summit Equipment Motorsports Park in Bristol, Tennessee,” said Trubach. “I placed in the top ten out of 298 kids in the 10-year-old bracket race. In the IHRA I went to the team finals and placed 8th out of 189 competitors. They were 15, 16, 17 and 18 years old.”

Trubach also took second place in the Ironman series in her intermediate division. She has more than 100 races to her credit. “I just started the 2009 season and am 3rd overall in points,” said Trubach. “It’s important get my head in the game and think of the best ways to win.”

The Trubach family also depends on K&N products. “K&N protects our engines and gives us additional filtration and power on the track,” said John Trubach, Sonsee’s father. “My daughter’s goal is to be a top fuel dragster and we hope she gets there. It’s all about the tree.”
