Janette Thornley Gets Treed

Published on September 11, 2012 by   ·   No Comments

Dream Chaser Racin’, Janette Thornley continues to make the program and earn points in the AHDRA Championship Series in the Hawaya Racing/Vreeland’s Harley-Davidson Pro Drag class.


After qualifying 4th in a tight Pro Drag field at Numidia Raceway for the Liberty Nitro Nationals Presented by Vreeland’s Harley-Davidson, Thornely had one of her personal worst reaction times in the first round against Rich Vreeland.


“It’s like I woke up and he was gone. The guys worked so hard to put a great ride under my butt. I’ll be practicing on the tree and be ready for Rockingham.  I’m not sure how this will affect my points, but we’re still planning on a Top 3 finish at season’s end.”
