Richard L. WhiteValerie (aka "Sunshine") also tested in The Maxx2Racing Team 'Bad Bird' ('97 NASCAR Superspeedway Ford T-bird) at the Invitation Only Mojave Air & Space Port event in November of 2014. After 24 hours of over 2.5 inches of rain, torrential wind and adverse conditions, the team was able to get in 3 test runs, finally running 165. The car holds 7 'National' records, finally running 224.9 at the June 2012 MKM Magnum Event. The car currently is set to receive its 'new' wrap sponsored by Coastal Graphics 7 .com-Barry Childress, and should that occur later this summer, the car will again run at the Ohio wilmington airpark ETCA mile. It's Valerie's decision as to being one of the drivers at the event, depending on time factors, and if she is there to run her motorcycle or not.
