CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- FOX8's Cindy Farmer has learned to drive cars that can reach incredible speeds.

You can see how she did and watch her make her first run in the video above.

While she was learning to drag race, Cindy also got to hang out with Courtney and Brittany Force.  The sisters are the daughters of John Force, who is the winningest driver in the history of drag racing.

This weekend in Charlotte, the Force sisters and some more of the fastest female racers on the planet will be competing at the zMAX Dragway.
