IHRA Junior Dragster Profile: Madison Maggard

Tuesday, 05 December 2023

HOUSE SPRINGS, Mo. — The International Hot Rod Association continues to highlight the future of drag racing with the youth who race Junior Dragsters across North America.

Madison Maggard, a 14-year-old from Lawrenceburg, Tenn., is the latest to have the spotlight placed on her. She has competed in a 2007 Mike Bos dragster the last two years at her home track, Ethridge Motorsports Park, where she’s made great friends.

Her racing hero is Erica Enders who recently became the winningest female driver in NHRA history. She enjoys math as a favorite school subject and the best part of drag racing is chasing someone down and catching them right at the finish line.

She eventually wants to move up to a big dragster. Madison said her mom, dad and older sister, Lindsay, are always there supporting her in the pits, in the staging lanes and on the track. She’s thankful for their support, along with all those at her home track.

Keep checking out the IHRA website and our social media pages as more of these great young racers are highlighted.
