Can you tell me a little bit about yourself? What is your story? How did you get into this industry?
I’m a single Mom with two daughters, Shelby and Amanda and the Vice President of McLeod Racing. I grew up in my family’s garage, where my father Jack Chrisman built some of drag racing’s most famous race cars including Chrisman’s Comet, the first Nitro Blown Funny cars. In 1971, my father retired from racing and founded Jack Chrisman Enterprises. I had a front row seat watching my dad change the course of driveline engineering from OEM to high performance driveline components able to withstand the horsepower being created by aftermarket manufacturers across the country. I appreciate the development of high performance parts for many reason, one being that safely eliminate. My father was seriously injured when the rear-end broke in the front engine dragster he was driving, nearly ending his life. Because of that incident, he dedicated himself on making sure that it didn’t happen to another driver. That motivation and focus on safety that I witnessed watching my dad build and improve the parts that other racers depend on, continue to influence my own commitment to manufacturing parts without compromising the safety element.
