TOMAHAWK - Many race car and dirt track drivers will rev up their engines at the Tomahawk Speedway Saturday, which is when the dirt season starts.
The dirt track season starts Saturday.
"It's awesome, the adrenaline rush is great," said race car driver Shauna Cottrell when she was doing some practice runs at the speedway.
"I'm not going to lie; it can be scary at times. But it's the thrill of a life time," said Cottrell.
After doing a few practice runs around the track last week, Cottrell is ready for the dirt racing season to kick off Sunday at the Tomahawk Speedway.
"It feels great to know that I can get out and compete with the guys," said Cottrell.
Cottrell said she doesn't let the mostly-male sport keep her from following her passion.
"Just because there's not a lot of girls in it don't mean you can't do it," said Cotrell.
Whether you're a woman or man, Cottrell has some advice for anyone who gets behind the wheel at Tomahawk speedway, "Go fast take chances don't be scared don't let the fears take over."
This season, the track will offer seven classes of racing most Saturday nights all summer long.
The races start Saturday at 6 PM.
