Shirley Muldowney, at 71 years of age, was once again enjoying the fans’ appreciation at the 6th annual Bixby Knolls Dragster Expo and Car Show last Saturday. Muldowney, known as the “First Lady of Drag Racing,” was the first woman to receive a license from the National Hot Rod Association to drive a top fuel dragster, and she won the NHRA Top Fuel championship in 1977, 1980 and 1982, becoming the first driver to win two and three Top Fuel titles. Muldowney has won a total of 18 NHRA national events.
