Leah Pritchett was sporting a Palomar sponsorship thanks to former NHRA champion Jeb Allen. However, in the first-round of eliminations on Sunday at the Toyota Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, California, did not like what he saw.

Pritchett, who was looking to sweep the tough Western Swing, was eliminated in the first-round, as she fouled by -0.184. She double-stepped it and it turned on the red light.

Bill Litton, who is racing in the Worsham Racing’s Top Fuel Dragster, saw the win light and immediately shut it off. Litton went 4.169 at 219.76 mph.

She became the first No. 1 qualifier at the Dodge Mile-High Nationals to win the race last weekend. Her teammate, Antron Brown, did it last before Pritchett in 2009.

This was Litton’s first round since Atlanta when he defeated Tony Schumacher in the first-round. He went 3.915 to Schumacher’s 3.925.

In addition, this is his third round win of the season. He also defeated reigning Top Fuel champion Brittany Force in the first-round at the Virginia NHRA Nationals at Virginia Motorsports Park.

This was Pritchett’s first red light of 2018. She has six career DNQ’s in her career.
