Congratulations Mia Tedesco!!!
It doesn't seem that long ago that Mia Tedesco was starting in her junior dragster:
She moved on to Mike's Auto Body Top class just a few years ago, and for the last couple of years has been traveling to IHRA and NHRA national and divisional events, and big money bracket races, with great success. This season, she has been driving the A/Fuel Top Alcohol dragster for Hirata Motorsports in select NHRA events. Today she scored her first Wally in Top Alcohol at the NHRA Division 3 Lucas Oil Drag Series event. Congratulations Mia!
