In continuing our look at the competitor’s for the 1st annual Goodguys Sponsor Shootout Autocross, scheduled for Sunday, July 10th at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, we find Stacy Tucker in the spotlight this week. She will represent Afco Racing in the ‘Shootout.
Tucker, Co-Owner of Detroit Speed & Engineering is a familiar face to the Goodguys AutoCross scene. You might also remember her as the 2007 Goodguys Woman of the Year.
Long before she was flogging her ’69 Camaro around the cones, she was a Boilermaker, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering degree from Purdue University before earning a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Her career at General Motors as a suspension development engineer paid big dividends for her and husband Kyle as they’ve risen to great heights in the automotive aftermarket industry with their cutting edge suspension components.
When she’s not working the Detroit Speed rig at events around the country, she races in the “American Iron” class in the National Auto Sport Association and always rides on BFGoodrich R1 tires. She’s also raced an SCCA Corvette in the ITE Class.
At Columbus, Tucker will have her bright blue ’69 Camaro, lovingly dubbed the “DSE Test Car” dressed in Afco livery. The lightning fast Camaro runs a Detroit Speed Hydroformed Front Subframe, Detroit Speed QUADRA Link and Detroit Speed Mini-Tubs. A Mast Motorsports LS3 provides ample power to the 3-Piece 5 Spoke wheels which of course are wrapped in BFGoodrich KDW Tires (Front: 275/35R18, Rear: 335/30R18).
Boys beware! Stacy’s coming with her A-Game!
