Lynn will return to the track in 2008 to try and earn some seat time and have some fun. But first, she's going to finish building her 400 h.p. 1953 Chevy hot rod. See pix of the "FiddyTree"

Additional Information

Lynn began racing 2003 in the compact division at Shadybowl Speedway in DeGraff, Ohio. In the 2005 racing season Lynn stayed in the compact division but with a new car. In this car, Lynn became the first female to ever win a feature race at Shadybowl Speedway. For 2006, Lynn stepped a few classes and began racing a 2004 Monte Carlo in the Late Model at Shadybowl Speedway. She competes against her own dad!

Bio Lynn's a true-blue car chick who grew up watching her dad race on Ohio circle tracks and attending car shows, & loving hot rods & rat rods. To make a living, she runs a graphics design business, Beginning in the summer of 2006, Lynn will be attending college, majoring in E-Marketing, with a minor in Marketing Design. Her son Andy is 12 and plays guitar in a band. Holly, Lynn’s 10 year old daughter, wants to follow in mom’s footsteps and become a racer! Besides her human kids, Lynn has a fuzzy mini schnauzer puppy who she refers to as her “four-legged son”.


In the 2003 and 2004 racing season, Lynn raced a Dodge Daytona in the compact division at Shadybowl speedway. Her average finish was 6th. In the 2005 racing season Lynn stayed in the compact division but with a new car built by Mitch’s all-nite Race Shop. In this car, Lynn became the first female to ever win a feature race at Shadybowl Speedway, and out of 9 races in it, she finished 3rd six times, 1st once, 6th once, and had 3 dnf’s (from being wrecked by jealous male competitors!) The 2006 season looked to be promising since Lynn had a new Late Model with a new motor, but a weakness in the valve train caused the motor to blow on her eighth lap around the track. This kept Lynn out of the car for all but two races in 2006, but she was happy that she wasn't in last place in the points. Now that her motor has been rebuilt and the car is in one piece, she looks forward to great things for the 2007 season.


The 2007 season schedule includes weekly races competing in the late model division at Shadybowl Speedway in DeGraff, Ohio, along with occassional races at Kil-Kare Speedway in Xenia, Ohio, and Winchester Speedway in Winchester, Indiana. My goal is to be in the top ten in points at Shadybowl at the end of the 2007 season.
