Correction to: Drag racer Holly Clarke signs on with Torklift International

LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Champion Drag Racer Holly Clarke is attending SEMA with her newest sponsor Torklift International.
On Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 11:30 a.m. Clarke is available for interview during her press conference located in Media Center N110.
Clarke caught the racing bug at an early age.
“My first race, I was 8 years old,” she said. “I was up at about four or five in the morning in my parents room trying to wake my dad because I couldn’t control my excitement. I was the slowest car and I was out first round but I hardly cared. I had waited for what felt like forever I was just thrilled to go down the track.”
Twelve years later, the British Columbia native has several championships under her belt including six annual championships in a row.
Clarke races a 1968 Chevy Nova with a 468 big block engine. Her fastest documented time in the dragster is 10.15 seconds but the chassis is certified at 8.5 seconds for a quarter mile.
