Molly Rhoads on Speedtalk

Long time racer Molly Rhoads will be on "Speedtalk on 1360" with Jason and Dean this Saturday 10-11am April 17th on KRWC radio and http://www.krwc1360.com/

Molly started racing back in 1998 driving her brother AJ's Sportsmen car at Elko Speedway. We go to know Molly when she raced at I-94 Raceway and Fergus Falls raceway beginning in 2001. She raced Street stock, Super stock, Limited Late Model and then finally in the Super Late Model divisions. She earned many rookie-0f-the-year awards, sportsman of the year and most popular driver awards.

At I-94 Raceway in Sauk Centre we would arrange "driver autograph sessions" during intermission and we had to make sure Molly had a table all to herself because she would draw such a long line of fans.

In 2004 Molly was the first female driver to ever win a Late Model race at Raceway Park in Shakopee. She was chosen as one of only 16 drivers to try out for the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program in 2006.

After helping Bryan Roach in the pits the last couple of years, Molly is back and looking to compete for a Super Late Model championship at Raceway Park in 2010.
