Fifteen year old, Renegade of Dirt “Rookie of the Year” contender, and second generation racer Amanda Stiffler of Farmdale, Ohio is not only passionate about her on track activity, she’s also very fervid about her off track responsibilities as part of the ‘youth’ of Auto Racing. Amanda excels in her actions of doing both very well, and is a national spokesperson for the Race Against Drugs http://www.ncprs.org/radHome.htm when not running side by side with the “guys” on dirt ovals all across the OH-WV-PA Tri-State area.
Racers Against Drugs (RAD) is the largest racing volunteer network dedicating their time as role model’s to young fans to follow their lead and live drug free, healthy lives by Fueling a Drug Free Future! The goals of the RAD organization and their spokespersons are to reach and educate our nation’s youth by advocating through motorsports professionals a drug free healthy lifestyle. Their primary focus has been to establish and maintain a large volunteer network that distributes materials designed to raise awareness and encourage discussion about drug abuse and change the attitudes and perceptions of our nation’s youth.
Amanda’s involvement with RAD started at age 14 , and being a teen in high school she knows all too well about the peer pressures, and negative influences America’s youth face daily in school and life.
“I was excited to be a spokesperson for RAD so that I could show other teens, like myself, that we can together rise above the bad influences and peer pressures and that there are far better opportunities and things than drugs and alcohol. I love being a role model and helping other kids like me reach for better things and say ‘no’ to drugs.” stated, Stiffler.
Amanda is more than excited to use her racing career to be a positive influence to her peers, ” I have been blessed with the opportunity to live a dream and while I have thankfully never taken drugs, I can assure you NO drug can match the high of racing wide open into turn one. I just want kids to know that no matter what they want to do in life, they can do it if the make the right decisions and stand up for what is right.” concluded, Stiffler.
As part of the stellar weekend of events and activities offered to fans at this years Renegade of Dirt Modified Tour “Let It Ride 55”, on Saturday May 25, 2013 from 2:00pm-4:00pm Amanda will be bringing along her 500+ horsepower #14 Open Wheel Modified to vender’s alley behind the main grandstands and will be there to visit with young fans, sign autographs, give away many fun things for children and teens as well as information on the dangers of drugs.

There will be a total of four diecast cars given away to ticket holders at intermission of the event on May 25th.
