Like most people that pilot those fast cars, they tend to be very small. Shirely was no exception. I recall one race in Bristol several years ago before they upgraded the track. It was a hot and humid July day. She suited up in here fireresistant suit. The temp had to be close to 100F and humidity was about the same. She drove a top fuel nitro car. I bet she lost five pounds that race and I doubt if she weighted 100 pounds.
Fiesty lady and very cool.
