Shortly after earning her Super Comp License from Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing school, Sarah purchased her own dragster that would be eligible to compete in the Super Comp, Top Dragster & Super Pro classes. Sarah transformed her monochromatic dragster to a shiny Royal Red backdrop with black and gold stripes to resemble a bumblebee. At that moment Sarah knew moving forward that she was going to treat this experience as professional as possible.
Queen Bee Racing was officially established in 2011. Sarah expresses “That even though, we were by no means a “professional” team or on the “professional circuit” – I still wanted to approach it with a sense of professionalism, whether that be in the way we dressed or performed from the pits to the starting line or at a car show”. Sarah was also assured that her car needed to have its own identity. “I knew from the beginning I wanted my car to have an identity, a name that would make its own statement and have its own character.” Sarah bracket raced the Queen Bee dragster for four years in the Top Dragster & Super Pro classes. Constant learning lead to the growth of Queen Bee Racing both on and off the track. Queen Bee racing has been featured in many publications, which Sarah credits her success to her hard work behind the scenes, her push of Social media and growing success with driving the dragster.
How did one come up with Queen Bee you may ask? Well Sarah simply thought back to the fact that she was always the only girl in her group of friends and her parents have called her Sarah Bee from the day one so Queen Bee sounded fitting; not to mention a large part of her inspiration in the drag racing world came from, the Queen of Diamonds Jet Dragster.
