GALAX, Va. -- Michelle Furr has quickly earned a reputation as one of the top competitors in the NHRA Lucas Oil Series. Though her racing career extends over three decades, she and her family first ventured into NHRA national and divisional competition just four years ago, and success quickly followed. Driving her Ohio Crankshaft/Quickfuel Technologies entries in Super Comp and Super Street, Furr has already earned a pair of NHRA national event wins and racked up several top tier finishes in the Lucas Oil series points standings.
While the Furr's admit that racing, maintaining, and servicing four competition vehicles can be a chore in itself, they wouldn't have it any other way.
"We have the best times with our drag racing family," Michelle explained. "Madi and Adiayn can't wait to see their friends at the track. They play from sun up to sun down with no worries about homework or chores; it's the best. Getting together and planning meals, hanging out, having fun, joking around, laughing. It just doesn't get any better."
"There is no feeling I will ever get from my own racing that will compare to watching my children win their first round and later their first race; it's unbelievable," said Furr. "Standing behind them on the starting line is the most nerve-wracking thing. You feel like you are literally going to be sick from the nerves before they make their run because you know how much they've put in and how badly they want to succeed; and you just want them to accomplish their dreams!"
Furr Racing is fortunate to partner with some of the most recognizable and reputable manufacturers in the high performance industry. The team depends on quality products from Ohio Crankshaft, Quickfuel Technologies, K&N Engineering, Moser, Autometer, Hooker Headers, Goodyear, JEGS, RCI, Turbo Start Batteries, Smith Brothers Push Rods, Earl's Plumbing, Hawk Performance, Maradyne High Performance Fans, PTC, Starrett Measuring Tools, Aeromotive, Powermaster Performance, Red Eagle, Moroso, Nitroplate, Melling Select Performance, Digital Delay, Jesel, MSD, MotorMile Performance, Undercover Motorsports, Abruzzi Transmissions, Staging Light Graphics, SuperWinch and Wiseco. Michelle finished the 2013 season ranked fourth in the NHRA Division 2 Super Street chase, despite what she called a disappointing season.
One thing is for sure: The Furr family will be a force on the race track again in 2014, and for many years to come. For more information on the Furr family racing team, visit www.FurrRacing.com.
