2021 NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster Champion Rachel Meyer previously said while appearing on The Capital Sports Report LIVE that she would not be competing this year. Now, we know why.
Meyer has announced that she is pregnant. She is expecting a baby in October 2021.
“Surprise,” Meyer said in an Instagram post. “Baby Curl coming this October. [This is] also why I am sitting out this year with the Alcohol car. Any guesses on the gender?”

Presently, the couple, who got married last year, have two kids. This will be their third child.
Meyer recently competed in a race at the end of March in a truck.
“This season, I’m going to take a step back,” Meyer said during The Capital Sports Report LIVE featuring Ladies Night on February 28th. “I’m going to focus on my bracket car and get my two little kids into their Jr. Dragsters. Hopefully, I’ll be back next year, but this season, I’m going to take a little break.”
While Meyer is not competing in Top Alcohol Dragster this season, her teammate Julie Nataas will try to keep the championship within the team. Randy Meyer Racing has won three straight Top Alcohol Dragster Championships.
