Top spot the only one for McSweeney

Georgia McSweeney wants to make the most of the coming WA track championship season in Super Street with an aim to be at the top of the championship standings.


McSweeney stepped into Super Street last season after completing her racing career in Junior Dragsters and finished ninth in the points following some quarter final appearances in the tough category.

Strangely, McSweeney felt there was less pressure in Super Street than among the junior racers.

“To be honest I think Junior Dragsters were much harder then Super Street, there is way more competitiveness within the junior category,” she said. “Super Street is filled with top people laying big burnouts and just enjoying the sport without having to spend too many dollars.”

The aspiring 19 year old chef said this will be her last season in the Holden ute she currently races, before fellow Junior Dragster graduate Taylah Batson takes over the wheel.

“Seeing as I’m stepping out of the ute at the end of the season I’m aiming for the top, I want to take it all out,” she said. “But most of all I want to travel to Alice Springs and Darwin and compete up there.

“I’ll be crew chief for Taylah when she steps into the ute in the following season but you never know what the future holds for me.”

McSweeney is the daughter of Funny Car record holder John McSweeney and said that he has been a strong influence on her racing.

“Dad will always be my mentor and biggest idol, the tips and knowledge he gives to me are priceless and something only learnt by experience,” she said.
