Straightliners at Santa Pod 2017

The Bike Insurer visited the Santa Pod raceway last weekend to catch up on the quarter mile racers we first visited last year.

Drag racing is a unique event all about speed, which might make you think it’s restricted to adults. But as our video shows, kids get involved and love it too.

We spoke to Megan Talbot, an 11 year old who rides in both the Straightliners Championship and the Junior Drag Racing Championship for Shark Attack Drag Racing.

Megan is one of only two female riders in the championships but she’s faring well and currently sits in second place in the Straightliners Championship with the Junior Drag Racing Championship set to start at Santa Pod’s Festival of Power.
