Check out vintage photos of badass “First Lady of Drag Racing”, Shirley Muldowney who felt the need for speed in her teens and hasn’t really stopped since.
A street racer turned pro, Shirley Muldowney is considered one of the all-time greats of any gender for drag racing. Over thirty years, she won numerous awards and made many hall of fame lists – and started a children’s charity.
(while she’s fairly well-known in some circles, she was new to me, and possibly new to some of you too! enjoy some of her awesome vintage photos at the link!)
