FAMILY IN DRAG — Team Clevenger€ is an El Dorado Hills family that includes three generations of drag racers. Josh and Makinna Clevenger, back and front, are 16 and 18 respectively, and have been racing since they were 8 and 10 years old. Their father, Curtis Clevenger, back right, has been racing with his father, Ron, not pictured, since the late 1970s. Melanie Clevenger, left, is team mom and marketing director. The team hopes to land a sponsor for Makinna, who at 17 was the youngest person to ever qualify as for an “Advanced E.T.” license. Village Life photo by Mike Roberts
