INDIANAPOLIS (December 9, 2015) – NHRA A/Fuel dragster driver-in-training Marina Anderson is displaying her custom-built dragster at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown this week. The display, which started on Sunday and will be in place until Saturday, December 12th, is scheduled around the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show at the Indiana Convention Center, which is accessible via the Marriott.
“I’m really excited about the opportunity to have my dragster in the lobby of the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown for the PRI Show. The PRI Show is always a great experience for us to both show appreciation for current partners and meet with potential sponsors. This display is a unique opportunity to expose the Anderson Family Dragster (AFD) brand and our partners to the show attendees and Marriott guests,” said Anderson.
The Anderson family and Competition Fabrications worked meticulously on the AFD nitromethane-injected dragster for four years before its debut at the Detroit Autorama last year. They completed most of the chassis fabrication, tinwork, wiring and plumbing in-house, leaving the engine preparation to noted A/Fuel tuner Jerry Darien. Marina and her family are planning a 2016 competition debut upon Anderson’s completion of the NHRA licensing process.
“After testing the car for the first time this fall, we can’t wait to see what 2016 brings for the team. We learned a lot this year and I appreciate the way other A/Fuel teams have been open to teaching me and evening allowing me to work on their cars. I am also thankful for my team’s hard work to get to this point. I know next year will be a rewarding year because we plan on attending a few of the NHRA regional events.”
The PRI Show opens on Thursday, Dec. 10, and runs through Saturday, Dec. 12. Marina Anderson will be available to answer questions and sign autographs by her car display from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday and Saturday of the show.
Anderson Family Dragster is an A/Fuel Dragster team with plans to compete in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series' Top Alcohol Dragster class. The car is owned and driven by 23 year old Marina Anderson, who was also heavily involved with the fabrication of the car. Marina and her team receive support from Competition Fabrications, Zrodz Customs, and The Midnight Moon Alpaca Ranch.
