Audrey Worm is forming her own Top Fuel operation for the 2020 season. The drag racer purchased her very own Top Fuel Dragster on Monday in Texas.

She purchased a Top Fuel Dragster that was most recently driven by Jenna Haddock.

“It’s official,” Worm wrote in a Facebook post. “I’m heading home from Texas with my own Top Fuel Dragster! The car was previously driven by Jenna Drake [formerly Jenna Haddock] and before that Antron Brown. I am so blessed to have the support — not only friends and family, and my amazing husband Aaron Grant, but also from great sponsors.

“I would like to thank Chip Lofton at Strutmasters; William Francis and Kenny from Burromax; Cody from Sisson Engineering; Hap Whitlock from Hi-tech Cam; Howie O’Neil [and] Leonard Long from G-Force Shifters; PennGrade; Duane A. Junker from Gates; Millerweld, Jim Novinger; Carrie Willhoff at Racechick; Jim Michaud; Heidi Jordan and Robert Jordan; all my Racefan members, and all the individuals, who contributed money for making my dream come true!”

Worm previously driven the Leverich Racing Top Fuel Dragster. However, the team decided to go in a different direction, which led the Pennsylvania native without a ride.

Smax Smith recently drove the Leverich dragster at the NTK NHRA Carolina Nationals at zMAX Dragway in Concord, North Carolina.

Worm last competed at the seventh annual NHRA New England Nationals in July. She was eliminated in the first-round of eliminations of the event.

Richie Crampton defeated Worm in their meeting. The Brownsburg, Indiana native went 3.827 at 320.20 mph for the win, while Worm went 4.020 at 296.11 mph in the losing effort.
