Pets Named After Famous Racers, Part 22: Katja The Dog

Katja The Dog.

Freightliner truck dealer and longtime road racing supporter, TPL Motorsports Racing team owner and sponsor Rod Snyder of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada sent in this photo and a note:

"Here is our dog Katja, she was rescued from a reserve in northern Canada. My girlfriend and son got to pick the dog so I got to name her. I wanted a racer dog so I decided “Katja” after Katja Poensgen which I felt was fitting because she is fast and pretty!"
