Speaker Series: The Monkey and Her Driver


Special Film Screening and Talk

Experience the story of two fearless women – and one stubborn motorcycle sidecar –  as they struggle to compete in the 2015 sidecar road racing season. This is the story of Kendra ‘Red Fury’ McDonald (the sidecar “monkey”) and Elizabeth ‘Steady Betty’ Herlocker (the driver), America’s only all‐women sidecar road racing team, their balky sidecar “Dixie”, and how they went from finishing in last place to winning the respect of fellow competitors, sponsors, and race fans during the 2015 SRA‐West season. Program includes discussion with filmmaker Ned Thanhouser and the racing team and a special screening of the documentary, “The Monkey and Her Driver.” Program is $5 and includes museum admission; free for World of Speed members.
