NAPA TIGER SPORTSMAN PROFILE. MEET: RACHEL BEEDE
Rachel Beede was born to race. From a young age Rachel along with mother Fran and sister Renee would go to Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre to watch father Chuck Beede (1992, ‘93, ’94 Late Model Sportsman Champion) and uncle Dan Beede (1987 NAPA Tiger Sportsman Champion) tame the high banks. The Beede family and friends would gather in the front row of the grandstands, to cheer for their favorite red and yellow Late Model, Chuck Beede. Once Rachel turned 16 years-old, she decided it was time she tested the racing waters and continued the family legacy at the wheel of an Allen Lumber Street Stock.
