We heard she has a heck of a story, and she came nowhere close to disappointing! Today's guest on our "The 5:15 Show" is Christa Schneider of "Psycho Bitch Racing". Normally conversations take you in one or two directions, yet talking with Christa, you get presented with five or six, usually all at once. But what a story! Oldest daughter of parents who BOTH raced in the 1960's (and oh by the way, ran their own speed shop in Plymouth) who started racing at 15 years old in a Chevelle and now races in many states with her husband, two sons, and now granddaughter all in the mix. A fascinating story of woman drag racing from the mid-80's to now, the troubles she has encountered by men who used the "I can't believe I lost to a woman" line (and you thought they only used that in the movies) to the heights of winning her first big event. All this and so much more in contained in this podcast. Stay tuned for part two...

cars do they have? You will find out this and SO MUCH more in this rollicking
