Introduction

Valerie Thompson BackgroundValerie Thompson is one of the most determined and successful independent female racers competing today, living in a world of speed on and off the race track. After leaving a successful career in banking, she became a top competitor in the All Harley Drag Racing Association and NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle series. Always driven to go faster, Valerie is now a 5-Time Motorcycle Land Speed Record Holder and racing team owner. When not presenting client vehicles at Barrett-Jackson & Metro Auto Auctions in her hometown of Scottsdale, she is making personal appearances all over the country promoting her sponsors and supporting community improvement organizations.

Valerie Thompson Land Speed Racing Team - Valerie's first year as a team owner/driver has met with tremendous success in 2012. She has already set three new national speed records with her S 1000 RR, now the fastest production land speed BMW motorcycle in the world. Her racing accomplishments recently earned her "Person of the Week" honors on Dragbike.com and her Pro Stock Motorcycle is currently on display at the Scottsdale International Automobile Museum.

Valerie Thompson – More Than A Successful Competitor - Valerie provides community support as a spokeswoman for children’s charities, most notably HopeKids.org. These efforts were recognized with the 2011 American Women Riders Community Hero Award. The Scottsdale International Auto Museum has also created a display of Thompson’s Buell drag bike, racing leathers, and records to promote their “hometown hero.”

Valerie’s winning attitude makes her a powerful brand ambassador and inspirational role model for motorsports fans everywhere.  She knows how to utilize her engaging personality to generate incremental sales for charities, race team sponsors, and major corporations.

Here’s what sponsors and fans say about Valerie:

  • “Beautiful but approachable, very welcoming & friendly.  She made us feel like part of the racing family”
  • “A real American success story with the most positive attitude I’ve encountered in motorsports”
  • “She loves kids and kids love her”
  • “A focused & determined competitor”
