“We’ve been talking about it for a while,” said Wood. “Darien & Meadows Racing came over and let me know Ashley was moving up and asked me if I wanted to join the team. In fact, John Force was one of the drivers that signed off on my top alcohol license. I’m really excited about the change.”

Wood did really well at a test session in Las Vegas. She ran 5.47 seconds at 237 mph in one run and 5.37 at 266 mph in another quarter mile run. “I’ve only had five runs so far in the A-Fuel car,” she said. “I had to get the feel of the clutch down.”

K&N Engineering sponsored Wood at the Sportsman level of drag racing. She will be using a K&N Clutch Air Filter. “The K&N Filter contains all the dust from the clutch and prevents a dust cloud as she launches,” said K&N Sport Marketing Director Charles Maier. “We are continuing to support Lindsey and will help her move on to a pro category. Lindsey is a nice fit for K&N.”

Wood’s first race will be in February at Florida.
