Stephanie is in her 22nd (?!) year of competition as a driver. 2017 will be her 5th season with the RACESAVER 305ci sprints. Stephanie has previously enjoyed success in the wingless ARDC dirt midgets, the wingless USAC Ford Focus pavement midgets, 600cc & 270cc microsprints, and go-karts. Racing is a family effort and wouldn't be possible without her Dad and Uncle (car owners) and the help of close friends who really "jumped right in" after her Dad's accident. Stephanie is grateful for all of her sponsors as well.
Stephanie graduated from Messiah College with a Bachelor's of Science in mechanical engineering. Disillusioned with sitting in a cubicle doing 3-D modeling, she then changed careers, went back to college, and now teaches 5th grade in Middletown, PA. Before moving to Middletown in 2015, Stephanie taught 4th grade and middle school math (her favorite teaching assignment) in her hometown of Harmony, NJ. Stephanie enjoys the outdoors, exercising, hiking, sports, and Zumba. (Her dog, Leila, enjoys being active, too!) In August 2012, Stephanie married Doug Dodson, a regular contender in the Super Sportsman division, driver of the #54. They enjoyed having their reception at the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing, home of the Latimore Valley Fairgrounds.
