The significance of this announcement is readily apparent to those who follow all of racing of every type. When one thinks of the top women in all of Motorsports, those who continue to move forward, those who lead by example, not just one hit wonders, or short careers, you only see a handful of those who have achieved true success, and that includes Valerie. Yes, all think Danica, or Shirley, Erica, Courtney, Angelle, Guthrie, Lyn St. James. She truly has succeeded against the norm, and has achieved her success running in events against men and women.
Valerie brings her years of success in many two wheel venues to the event. She spent part of this past summer running at Bonneville, driving a Nationwide Nascar Race Car. ‘Licensing Up’ to just under 200 MPH. Now, she sets her sites on addition records to add to her stunning list of accomplishments, driving four wheel race cars.
Valerie collected her seventh speed record at the 2014 World of Speed event to earn the famed Red Hat of the Bonneville 200 MPH Club. Valerie is now one of only 24 females in the club which has 730 total members.
Valerie will be signing autographs at both the ‘Tech Day’, and during the event day itself. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to have your official Valerie Thompson clothing line, caps, posters, and memorabilia signed by her personally. You will have to ‘catch’ her between record runs on the runway.
Her schedule in Southern Nevada and California from October 28 through November 7th includes appearances at the NHRA Drag Racing events, Mojave for the car event, back to Las Vegas for the SEMA Show at the CTEK Battery Charger Exhibit Booth, Guest Appearances, then off to the El Mirage Dry Lake events.
Valerie surrounds herself in a world of speed even off the racetrack, presenting client vehicles at Barrett-Jackson and Metro Auto Auction in her hometown of Scottsdale.
