Capitol Hosts Special Fan at Opener

Capitol Racing News Published: Spring 2003

Capitol Auto Group Racing and Woodburn Dragstrip teamed up to host a young girl stricken with cancer at the Season Opener, May 18th. Codi Frazier, age 10 was originally diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer known as Osteosarcoma in 2000. Now, the cancer has progressed to the point where doctors have little hope that she will beat the disease.

During the race, Codi got to meet and spend time with several high-profile top alcohol and jet funny car racers including, Steve Federlin, Joey Severence, Clint Thompson, Todd Ashwell, Kim Parker, Richard Smith, Daren Bay and Mitch Myers. After a tour of Myersí pit area, he promised Codi that he would set new track record for her and did so an hour later in his A/Fuel Dragster with a 5.39 ET.

Codi along with her legal guardian, Loni, were invited to ride down with Kim Parker s crew to retrieve their dragster after Kimís best ever run. While Codi loved the dragsters, her favorite cars were predictably the Jet funny cars. The racers also reached out to Codi by giving her and her friends t-shirts and signed posters. It was Codiís first time attending a drag race and it was much more than she ever expected. You see the heartwarming photos at
