Angela Gantkowski

Elite Dragster Driver


Angela Gantkowski is an exceptional dragster driver with unlimited potential! In 2009, at the very young age of 11 years old, she initiated her racing career within the junior dragster division at local tracks within North Carolina. It was this very year that she was awarded Mooresville Dragway’s “Rookie of the Year” title!

In 2014, Angela won Farmington Dragway’s “Rookie of the Year” for TOP Eliminator due to her unmatched skill and speed. The following season, she stepped up to the challenge and entered into Top Dragster. It was in 2018 that she entered into the Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) Series and placed second globally. This jaw-dropping achievement is a landmark advocating the exponential ability that she has a dragster competitive driver. Her last season she competed, she strictly raced within the PDRA and ended 8th for the season. This upcoming season is going to be the 11th season that she has been paired up with her father, Shawn Gantkowski, as her crew chief. We are very excited and proud to have her join Team Circuit! We wish her the best of luck in her upcoming season and are eager to see her amazing racing skill on the track!
