Carrie Neal, 25, of Poway, CA, died from injuries received in a crash of her dragster during second round qualifying Friday afternoon, July 25, 1997. Carrie's throttle apparently stuck during burnout, and she never got the engine shut off, went out of control in the shutdown area and crashed.

Carrie was in her second year of competing in Federal Mogul Dragster, sharing the driving duties with her father last year before taking over full time this year. She was a regular participant in NHRA Division 7 events.
