IHRA Junior Dragster Profile: Aurora Lyons

HOUSE SPRINGS, Mo. — The International Hot Rod Association and its member tracks are proud to showcase the young racers competing in the Junior Dragster ranks.

Aurora Lyons, a 15-year-old from Fort Chiswell, Va., is starting her fifth year in the smaller scale cars. Her favorite place to race is her home track, Elk Creek Dragway, and she draws inspiration from her dad, an older cousin Robby and Alex Taylor from Hot Rod Garage.

Her goal is to win a track championship against the tough competition she faces at Elk Creek. She loves the feeling, the adrenaline rush, of pulling into the water box. There’s also the enjoyment of meeting new people as she describes the racing family like no other.

Lyons lists English as her favorite school subject and would love to be a journalist for Drag Illustrated one day. After she graduates from the Juniors, she hopes to race her dad’s 1972 Plymouth Duster in Footbrake.

We celebrate Aurora’s passion for the sport and have profiles of racers from Texas, Indiana and Ohio coming up soon.
