Melissa Frank


Melissa Frank drives the #83 Dromer Oval Class car.  Her home track is Sportsdrome Speedway.  She lives in Louisville, KY.

Team members helping Melissa are:  Daughters Brittany and Dakota, Angie & Jeff Crum, Gary Hall, John Basham, Tommy Brown Jr. and Keith Frank.

Melissa started racing in 2005 in the Dromer Class at Sportsdrome Speedway after being involved in racing for 7 years decided to drive one herself.  Career highlights include owning the car in 2005 that won 1 Consi  and 1 B Feature plus several Heat wins.  She was able to have the car at the track for every racing night in 2005.  She is in the owners fund for 2006 from the 2005 Season.

The thrill of racing for Melissa is knowing that a female can own and drive racecar and still be competitive.  Her most exciting racing moment was hitting the track for the first time as a driver instead of being a fan sitting in the stands.  She's most proud that in 2006 she decided to build a new car.  She used the motor, transmission and rear end from the old car.  She only had help on welding and putting in the rear end.  The rest of the work was done solely by herself.  Now she is a car owner, driver and mechanic for her own car!

Melissa's racing hero is Dale Earnhardt Sr.

Of racing, Melissa says, "My friends that race here are great.  They have helped me when I have questions and have even hauled the car to the track for me when I was unable to.  I wouldn't trade them or the passion they have for anything!".
