Autumn Hight has been seen on NHRA programming and has even helped her father’s team out. She is the daughter of two-time NHRA Funny Car Champion Robert Hight.

Hight, the driver of the AAA of Southern California Funny Car, goes 300-plus mph in his car when he is on the 24-race NHRA tour. On his off weekend, he helped his daughter to her first race win, as she goes way less than that at her 8.15 dialed-in number.

A Jr. Dragster could go as fast as 85 mph in 7.90 seconds during an eighth-mile. Autumn won her first Jr. Dragster race on Saturday at Barona Dragstrip in Lakeside, California.
