Groves, of Morgantown, WV is the daughter of modified racer Dave Groves.  She was a 5-time feature winner at the Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex and a second place finisher in points at Roaring Knob and Elkins Motor Speedway in 2010.  She was also the first female to qualify for a feature at Carl Short’s Dirt Track World Championship and the first female to win a feature at the Roaring Knob Motorsports Complex.  She is a graduate of Fairmont State University with a B.S. in Health Sciences.  She is employed with Melvin’s Transmissions.
“I’m looking forward to working with Team Wilson,” said Groves.  “My dad has known Frank for years so we feel it is a good fit for me and my career.”  You can follow Deana in her racing endeavors at www.grsmodifieds.com.

Thomas, of Moundsville, WV comes from a racing family as well.  She is the only female to win a feature at the historic Tyler County Speedway where she raced in the ultra-competitive Street Stock division.  She is a graduate of John Marshall High School in Moundsville, WV and is currently employed as a courier for FedEx.  “I’ve wanted to try asphalt racing for years,” said Thomas.  “Working with Frank and his team gives me the opportunity I’ve always dreamed of.”
 
Both have a trailblazing personality and an enthusiasm that is infectious.  Both have a goal to be the first female to win an ARCA sanctioned event and both have the drive and desire to make it to the highest levels of auto racing.  Check www.arcatruckracing.com to track their progress during the 2011 racing season.
