Enders wins second Pro Stock U.S. Nationals Wally

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher 

Erica Enders was in the final round one year after devastation. The Houston, Texas native had a problem with her Pro Stock and lost to her teammate Alex Laughlin.

One year later, Enders was on top of the Pro Stock Mountain at the biggest drag race of the season. She won the Denso Spark Plugs U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis in Brownsburg, Indiana.

This is the second-time that the Elite Motorsports driver has won the biggest event on the calendar. She also won the event in 2015.

She went 6.606 at 208.55 mph to claim the Wally. Total Seal Pistons driver Matt Hartford went 6.610 at 208.59 in the losing effort. 

“This is really sweet and it means the world to me,” Enders said. “You work your entire life for something like this and it’s a dream come true. I’ve drag raced for 30 years and raced in Pro Stock for 16 years, and so many people have made this possible. This Chevy Camaro is mean, I’ve got the three baddest crew chiefs on the property in Rick Jones, Rickie Jones and Marc Ingersoll, and I’ve got the best team in the world. This is just amazing.”

Before this final round, Enders held a 13-2 advantage over Hartford. This was the third-time that they faced each other in the final round. 

Each had a final round win, before Enders now has a 2-1 advantage with this latest win. 

The Texan picked up her second win on the season. It is her 27th career win in Pro Stock. 

Enders won by 0.0212 seconds, or approx. 6 feet.
