Ten-year-old Gloria Hansen plans to launch her racing career this month.
When she gets behind the wheel, Gloria depends on E98 — a racing fuel that’s 98 percent ethanol, to keep her single stroke, air-cooled engine running cool and smooth, and getting her going faster than 60 miles-per-hour within seconds.
She follows in the footsteps of her dad Corey, who raced all over the Midwest in his late teens and 20s.
As a “junior dragster,” Gloria competes with other kids on a one-eighth mile strip.
