Early in 1990, 28-year-old Darrell “the Kid” Gwynn was being fitted for a crown that pundits assumed he would wear for years to come. Hailed as “the man who would be king,” he was heir apparent to Top Fuel legend “Big Daddy” Don Garlits to whom he had finished second in points in 1986. In little more than four pro seasons, he had won 18 races and finished no worse than fourth in the Top Fuel driver standings.

At select events, Top Fuel frontrunner Leah Pritchett has a diversion from her Papa John's Pizza sponsored dragster. She also races the Factory Stock Showdown behind the wheel of a Dodge Challenger Drag Pak.
"I think I'm starting to get a feel for this car," Pritchett said. "It certainly isn't as fast as a Top Fuel dragster, but it's a very different car to drive. It does big wheelstands, and with a small (nine-inch wide) tire, you have to be very careful in the way you drive it.
"I have a very limited number of passes with this car. We’ve been all over the place trying to find our baseline. And even going into the U.S. Nationals, we had new a new motor, we got new shocks, so we’re still testing so to speak."
