Roger burgess dating melanie troxel
Now Troxel, a self-described adrenaline junkie who got started while working for her father’s team, is on a hectic, challenging and sometimes literally bumpy track.
But getting back to the pro classes is not necessarily the number one goal.
Part of the deal with R2B2 is helping Burgess promote Pro Mod, which includes three race weekends in Europe, two at the Santa Pod Raceway in England and one at Hockenheim in Germany, where she was the winner.
Troxel was at Santa Pod last weekend, but after being the top qualifier her Camaro broke prior to the semifinals.
Troxel won one event, but failed to qualify in four of the first six races of the season.
She just missed becoming the first female driver to score an NHRA Funny Car win, earning a victory two events after Ashley Force Hood took that honor.
In her second season of piloting Pro Modifieds for the team of Roger Burgess, a limited Funny Car schedule with sponsorship from In-N-Out was added.
The Funny Car driver may not be in the ranks of the Countdown to One, but that hasn’t reduced her resolve.It was her first hiatus from dragsters or nitro machines since launching her career in a Top Alcohol Dragster fourteen years ago.Along the way, she quietly divorced fellow driver Tommy Johnson Jr., whom she married in December of 2003.Having the right chemistry is important and I didn’t feel I had that there.” Two more Top Fuel wins for Morgan Lucas followed in 2007.
In 2008, Troxel switched to Funny Cars with the ill-fated team of Mike Ashley, sold to Burgess before the season even started.The internet is huge and it is giving talented guys like these professionals a place to get their stories out to our fans and the public.
