Leah Pritchett picked up her third Wally of the 2017 season. She took her Papa John’s dragster to the win at the 30th annual NHRA SpringNationals at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas.

Pritchett also won the first two races of the season.

“Our goal was to leave as the points leader and that was not easy at all,” she said. “Going into the final, we said this is our bounce back and we’re going to keep it interesting. Never been in a position to really be counting points — and I know it is early in the season, but I’m definitely enjoying it.”

She defeated Texas native Steve Torrence in the final round. She also got the points lead back with the final round win. 

Her husband, Gary, is a member of Torrence’s team. Torrence was 4-2 against Pritchett previously — and this was their first-time facing each other in the final round.

This is Pritchett’s fourth career win. She now has 494 points, just four points more than three-time champion Antron Brown, who has 440 points.
