VIDEO FEATURE - LEAH'S OTHER CAR

 

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."
