Grumpa's Girl (And DFC Racing Carburetors) Is Famoous!
Posted on Sunday, July 11 @ 17:45:21 EDT by Bob

DFC Racing I can honestly say that when I first talked my granddaughter into helping with carburetors, I had no idea how that would turn out. Imagine my surprise and pride when she appeared in the March 2021 issue of Speedway Illustrated magazine!

She showed alot of interest in it from the start and she was very eager to learn anything I'd show her. That eagerness really grew when she starting working on carbs for racers that she not only knew, but loved to see doing well. She had been helping with various carbs for a while before an aerosol style carb came in from one of her early heroes, Rory Reed. Racers are often intimidated by an aerosol carb, but her only reaction was to ask if she could could do this one on her own. It seemed to mean alot to her so I turned her loose on it with limited supervision from me. It's a damn shame Rory doesn't race much in recent years because she turned out a kickass carb on her first try. I'm not sure who was more proud to see her name on that data sheet, her or me. As I had promised her, I made her a custom shirt to celebrate her first complete racing carburetor. It reads "Not All Girls Are Scared Of Carbs". Since that day she's built several more winning carbs for dirt and asphalt in all divisions. In just the past couple of years racers such as Dwayne (Dewey) Powell, and Sam Bigham have been winning everywhere they go with carbs built by this awesome young lady who turned just 14 years old a couple months before the magazine article. The 2021 season began with a carb from another one of her heroes, George The General Lee. She couldn't wait to get started on that one as soon as it hit the bench. She was even nice enough to autograph that data sheet for him since she'd gotten his in the past ;-) George got caught up in some ugliness the first couple nights out but has since set fast time and ran off with a Dash win at Hilltop in recent weeks. Grumpa couldn't be more proud!
