Swansea High School student races to win

October 8, 2019

Swansea, SC - Madalin Simmons, a sophomore at Swansea High School, placed first in the “Race of Champions” Junior Dragster race that took place September 14-16, 2019 at the Darlington Dragway in South Carolina. She received $590 and a Summit Racing Equipment jacket along with the esteem of her friends, family and competitors.


Simmons began drag racing only two years ago at the South Carolina Motorplex in Orangeburg. Just a few months after she began, Simmons crashed her dragster, breaking her back in four places. “It was scary,” remembers Simmons, “but I love the adrenaline and sounds of the engine... I was still excited to race again.” Simmons was back on the track several months later racing her way to the win at Darlington!


Graduating high school and attending college are important goals for Simmons. She also hopes to make a career of racing. “I plan to go to college for dentistry, but my ultimate dream is to be the next Brittany Force,” who was the 2017 National Hot Rod Association dragster champion.
