Lindsey Wood Invited to Ashley Force's NHRA Top Alcohol Spot
Lindsey Wood is moving up once again on the racing circuit. The 22-year-old Floridian is taking Ashley Force’s spot in Top Alcohol dragster with Darien & Meadows Racing.

Courtney Force is turning pro this season and driving a Funny Car for John Force Racing. Wood is moving from NHRA Super Comp Dragster. Wood started racing junior dragster in 1995 and won her first national event in 2005 at Gainesville.

“We’ve been talking about it for a while,” said Wood. “Darien & Meadows Racing came over and let me know Ashley was moving up and asked me if I wanted to join the team. In fact, John Force was one of the drivers that signed off on my top alcohol license. I’m really excited about the change.”

Wood did really well at a test session in Las Vegas. She ran 5.47 seconds at 237 mph in one run and 5.37 at 266 mph in another quarter mile run. “I’ve only had five runs so far in the A-Fuel car,” she said. “I had to get the feel of the clutch down.”

Wood’s first race will be in February at Florida.

K&N Sponsored Racer Lindsey Wood


A determined Lindsey Wood was a powerful force once again on the track in her K&N Engineering backed Undercover Dragster. The twenty-three year old added another mark on her impressive racing resume with a Super Comp victory at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at No Problem Raceway in Belle Rose, Louisiana.

This was Wood’s second consecutive win at the Louisiana track. She captured the event title last season in Top Alcohol Dragster. All in all, Wood’s latest win marked her ninth consecutive win at Bell Rose between the two classes.

Wood started the day by knocking off recent national event winner Bart Nelson in the opening round of racing. From there she eliminated former Jeg’s All Stars competitor Doug Miller in round two. Then, she ended the day by getting the better of two former world champions, K&N sponsored Britt Cummings in the semi-final round and then Tommy Costales in the final.

“It’s really great to get a win in Super Comp again,” said Wood. “The last year has been hectic, but right now I’m really content to compete in the sportsman ranks and race with my family.”.
