Leah Pritchett blew up her Papa Johns Dragster. However, she’s the provisional No. 1 qualifier at the 30th annual Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, Calif.
Pritchett leads the Top Fuel category following her 3.669 at 304.80 mph pass. She’s looking to secure her second straight No. 1 qualifier, as she was also the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals No. 1 qualifier last weekend.
If she is able to get the No. 1 qualifier, it’ll be her fifth this season and the sixth of her career.
“It feels incredible,” she said. “I’m just overly impressed with my team. I knew we were going after it in Q2. The thing about these Q2 sessions is that you have to hang it all out on the line, from a crew chief stand point to a driver stand point, because things are going to get funky out there, and they did.”
Monster Energy Top Fuel pilot Brittany Force is presently No. 2 with her 3.689 at 330.63 mph. Mac Tools Top Fuel pilot Doug Kalitta is the No. 3 qualifier at the moment with a 3.694 at 331.28 mph.
Three-time World Champion and Matco Tools Top Fuel pilot Antron Brown is presently fourth with his 3.705 at 329.42 mph pass. Eight-time World Champion and U.S. Army Racing pilot Tony Schumacher is presently fifth with a 3.709 at 328.30 mph run.
