Cindy Crawford is a female drag racer who lives in South Florida. She is now in her third year of Modular Motor racing in the Fun Ford and the NMRA (National Mustang Racer's Association)/NOS Ford Drag Racing Series. Cindy ranked sixth overall in points in 1999 and was named the association's Rookie of the Year. Cindy hopes to become the fastest female in the Modular Motor class.

Cindy struggles with a chronic illness called "Systemic Lupus," which can attack any organ in her body. She donates her racing proceeds to the Lupus Foundation of America to help research and find a cure for Systemic Lupus. It is Cindy's way of giving back and helping in this worthwhile cause. When she attends these races, Cindy sets up a booth in the pits with Lupus literature, pamphlets, and articles to allow people to learn about lupus. Cindy had a very tough year 2000 struggling with lupus and is fortunate to be back out racing full strength this year.

Cindy's new engine combo is getting set up for the 2001 season and should be ready to hit the track in two weeks. She hopes to pull some low 10 second runs, if not some high nines. Cindy also plans to earn her competition license within two weeks. Cindy has written a book on the basics of drag racing titled "Life in the Fast Lane." She is currently searching for a publisher. Cindy also has a website at www.gocindy.com. She will update it as soon as she makes her first track run with the new engine setup. 

Look for Cindy running in the Fun Ford and NMRA events throughout the United States. Stop by and say hello!
