Dilworth, MN (WDAY TV) -- To the track now...and there's no doubt racing is a male dominated sport. But for this week's Speedway Spotlight, we give some props to the girls.

Tailin Tommerdahl is a 16 year old from Dilworth who started racing go-karts when she was 10. That experience paid off. Tommerdahl now races Midwest Modifieds and loves getting better by racing against mostly guys.

Tommerdahl says, "You learn from them, you watch and it's a good feeling when you pass them because it means that you're learning. It's something that I get to do with my dad. Most kids, maybe they have other things that they do like fishing, I just go racing with my dad."
