Lisa takes an active role in her husband's racing endeavors. She handles all team marketing and oversees the day-today operations of the team. She is the stabilizing and driving force of Mike Edwards Motorsports. According to Mike, "I couldn't do this program without Lisa." She was instrumental in Mike's return to the sport with the Nickens Brothers in the 1980's. Lisa is a born and raised native of Tulsa, Oklahoma. She and Mike married over 20 years ago and live just outside of Tulsa in Coweta, Oklahoma.

Most Memorable Championship Moment: "The win in Charlotte, that was the beginning of the countdown, the first time Mike lead the points, and the whole team was there for the win. Charlotte was the beginning of the championship run, everything that we had done up to that point really didn't matter. It was what would happen in the next 7 races and to start with a win was a big boost!"

Since Mike Edwards Motorsports is a family operation it is only natural that Mike's sister, Marilyn, takes an active role in the family business. Besides her secretarial duties in the office, Marilyn is in charge of coordinating all Young Life pre-race programs prior to each NHRA racing event. She also helps organize sponsor and donor visits. "My sister contributes a lot to our program," Mike said. "She makes sure that as many Young Life kids as possible get a chance to come out and experience what drag racing is all about."

Most Memorable Championship Moment:The one moment that stands out to me is that ride back from the top end of the race track at the Winternationals in Pomona. They had just told Mike that he had clinched the championship, the whole crowd was on their feet and cheering as he was riding back to the starting line. I remember just feeling so proud and happy for him that he had finally achieved the goal that he had been working toward for a lot of years.

Allan Lindsey

Residence: Owasso, Oklahoma
Birthplace: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Date of birth: April 30, 1965
Years in racing: 24

Most Memorable Championship Moment:"When I radioed to Mike that he was the New 2009 NHRA Full Throttle Pro Stock Champion!"

Racing highlight: "I have two major highlights in my Pro Stock career; of course both have to do with winning. The first came when I worked for Jim Yates and he won St. Louis in 1999, that was my first Pro Stock win. The second is when I got my first win with Mike and the Young Life team in Houston 2006."

Racing lowlight: "While I was working on a Funny Car team a few years back, one of my only jobs on the starting line was to remove the tire cover. One time, I plain forgot, and we did a burnout. There it was flapping down the track. I was quite embarrassed."

Favorite track: "Any of the Bruton Smith owned tracks. Bristol, Las Vegas, and Sonoma are some of the nicest facilities on the circuit."
