Having clinched the Bay Cities Racing Association Dirt championship prior to the final
BCRA Dirt race -- becoming the first female to win a major Midget championship,
Shannon McQueen collected her championship accolades at the BCRA awards banquet
in Stockton, CA on January 28.
In addition to decisively claiming the BCRA Dirt driver and Dirt car owner’s titles,
McQueen also claimed fourth overall in driver’s points and sixth overall in owner’s
points, as well as receiving the best appearing car award.
In 13 BCRA races, McQueen finished in the Top 10 every race, with 12 Top five runs,
including a feature victory at Marysville Raceway Park on April 16, five Heat race wins,
Trophy Dash win and two fast time awards, including a new track record at Silver Dollar
Speedway (August 5). McQueen amassed six second-place finishes and nine Top 3 runs.
In addition to McQueen’s finishes, McQueen Racing also had a pair of Top 5 runs by
2012 McQueen Racing Chili Bowl teammates Michelle Decker and Harli White.
