Lynn races at Shadybowl Speedway in DeGraff, Ohio. It's the worlds fastest 3/10th of a mile asphalt speedway. It is lightly banked, making it a very fun track to race at. The track has a long history and has been open since the 1930's. Lynn has the honor of being the first and only female to ever win a non-powder puff feature race at the famed oval. The track has had several owners over the years, with the current owners being the Young and Mahaffey families. They have made several signifcant improvements to the track. The track has played host to many big name drivers, including Dale Earnhardt, Jr., as well as many local racing legends including Lynn's own father (Jim Frederick), Robbie Dean, Jim Cushman, and more. Racing takes place on Saturday nights, with gates opening at 3 p.m.
