DeSpain readies for new racing season
Westmer High School student Holly DeSpain is preparing for the 2009 racing season with a new powder coated "grave digger" green race car.
The DeSpains have completely dismantled last year's car and have scheduled 26 races, 22 of them at the Macomb Raceway. She will also be appearing at the Burlington 34 raceway to support the IRA Outlaw Sprints.
Her first points race is April 11 in Macomb.
Holly has two more "Stay-In-School" programs she will be doing in April in schools in the Quad Cities.
She has picked up two sponsors for 2009 in the Aledo Meat Market and Smittys Too, Bar & Grill, Keithsburg.
