Sarah Edwards is a 23-year-old drag racer from Stamford, CT. After her Dad heard a radio ad, her supportive parents took Sarah to Raceway Park, Englishtown, NJ, her first time to any motorsports event, for what they saw as a chance for a little ‘family fun’. The sensation that filled Sarah’s twelve-year-old body watching the ‘Queen of Diamonds’ Jet Dragster exceed the speeds of 300 MPH in a ¼ mile filled her head with a dream.
Since those childhood visits to Old Bridge Township’s Raceway Park, she has followed her dream, and her pursuit of drag racing. After graduating high school, in July of 2010, Sarah attended Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School. After a two-day class, at the age of 18, she received her NHRA Super Comp License.
