Olathe, K.S. - NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster team owner and crew chief, Randy Meyer is familiar with the variables that come with driver changes. He himself is known to get back behind the wheel from time to time. This weekend's MAC Tools NHRA US Nationals will see the Randy Meyer Racing team compete with Australian driver, Kate Harker.

The Meyer team has a successful racing relationship with the Harker Family. Kate's identical twin sister, Diana was the driver for the Meyer family Top Alcohol Dragster in 2008 earning several final round appearances together. Meyer earned Diana the title as the 9th women to win an NHRA National event in the class and also the first non-resident and Australian women to win an NHRA event.

Randy Meyer and his team have a long list of prestigious wins and championships. They are notably known for their ability to train up and coming NHRA drivers, while keeping that competitive edge on track. The team is more than capable of delivering fast elapse times and round wins.

Kate is very familiar with the Randy Meyer Racing operation having watched, crewed and driven the Top Alcohol Dragster herself. Kate entered the Dallas, Texas NHRA National event in 2008 with Randy and his team. Consistency got the team winning rounds and a runner-up finish at the event.

Another notable for this Labor Day weekend's event, is Kate's twin sister, Diana will also be competing in the Harker family blown Top Alcohol Dragster. There could be possibility for a sibling rivalry and a match up of the Injected Nitro and Blown Top Alcohol dragsters between the sisters. But wait there's more, the twin's father; Steve Harker will be contending his Top Alcohol Funny Car at the event.

"I am looking forward to this opportunity to drive for Randy, Mary and their team" said an excited Kate "Randy and Mary have a top competitive race operation, that's proven on track, the car is safe and have an dedicated and experienced crew on board with them." "If Diana and I get to race each other, I know we will be super competitive yet very supportive and most of all have fun. This is a big weekend for our family and a wonderful opportunity for us as a family to share our passion for drag racing."

Qualifying for the Top Alcohol cars at the MAC Tools US Nationals begin Friday with eliminations scheduled to begin Sunday with conclusion of racing on Monday.
