Amber Zent’s 1965 Volkswagen Ghia racelegal.com 3-1-2019

Added by AutomotiveUploads
Amber Zent’s 1965 Volkswagen holds a special place in her heart and driveway. “We upgraded the engine. We are putting it back in now.”

Zent began racing at RaceLegal and has not looked back since. “It’s a really great way to just relax and take your mind off everything. I actually tanked the first time out. I did not make it down the track.”

Since then, Zent has joined the racing community at events throughout southern California, but RaceLegal is one of a kind in San Diego. “RaceLegal is really my only opportunity to practice and get that seat time.”

RacecLegal started 21 years ago with funding from the California Office of Traffic Safety. The goal was to give drivers an alternative to illegal street racing and cut down on preventable tragedies.

Organizers said they are forecasting a financial deficit for 2019, and are ending the program, saying: “My hope is that San Diego does not lose the knowledge of how to combat the tragedy of preventable deaths as a result of illegal street racing.”

Come next Friday, Zent said she will be at RaceLegal’s finish line – where her love for racing got the green flag.1965 Volkswagen Beetle drag racing at racelegal.com
