January 10, 2004 - La Mirada, CA -- Rookie race driver Madalynne Crowe along with co-drivers Tom and Scott Dragoun were honored by SCCA's California Sports Car Club as 2003 Champions of the Alfa Leisure See Ya Motor Homes Pacific Nights Enduro Series. The team secured the Championship with an exciting win at Buttonwillow Raceway Park in the season's final race.

In her first year in motor sports, Crowe campaigned a 7s Only Racing prepared Mazda RX-7 in sprints and endurance races sanctioned by both SCCA and NASA. Having never raced before, she compiled an impressive record of 21 top-10 finishes in 23 starts, reaching the podium 9 times. Madalynne moved to Bakersfield last year to pursue her racing career.

Co-driver Tom Dragoun is a fixture at Buttonwillow Raceway Park, where he operates 7s Only Racing, a full service race shop. A designer and builder of race cars, Dragoun also serves as crew chief for Crowe's sprint and enduro campaigns. Tom has been competing in SCCA races since 1995.

Co-driver Scott Dragoun, another Bakersfield resident, has also enjoyed much success in SCCA road racing. He currently works as a firefighter/paramedic with the Bakersfield Fire Department.
