Christophersen Racing

Steve & Sue Christophersen have been racing together for 25 years. It started in the early 90’s at the Bonneville Salt Flats where they both earned lifetime membership in the Bonneville 200 MPH Club. Throughout the 90’s and early 2000 they also bracket raced a rear engine dragster the ¼ mile, running in the mid 7’s at 175 mph. Currently they race a blown alcohol nostalgia funny car called Susie Q that can run in the high 6’s and a little over 200 mph. Sue pilots the funny car and Steve is the engine builder, fabricator and tuner.

Their schedule runs from May through October and includes points races with the Nostalgia Drag Racing League in the PRO 7.0 class plus a number of exhibition races and car shows.
