HEATHER'S RACING FAMILY

heather's dad

Damon Hadley 

Damon is the proudest father in the world and Heather’s #1 fan. He works as a contractor in Vallejo, CA, but has simultaneously taken on the role of a mechanic as Heather progressed in her early years of racing. Although he makes sure to keep everyone laughing (also occasionally does stand-up), he also keeps Heather mentally and physically prepared for each race that they attend.
