21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Drag racers, Jerilyn Durst and Annika Murphy

“Drag racing is generational here, you know? It’s a male dominated sport but most guys are supportive, like ‘Wow, a girl is doing this. That’s really cool.’ Generally, folks want to help you out. Because, if they are going to beat you, they want to beat you at your best.”
