The Flemington, New Jersey native had the startling line advantage, as she went 0.059 in reaction time. Shields was trailing, as he had an 0.084 reaction time.

Fricke had her quickest and fastest pass of the weekend to get the win, according to Drag Race Central. She won by 0.0890 seconds, or approx. 36 feet.

This was Division 1’s (Northeast Division) first Divisional of the 2020 season. Several previous races were postponed or rescheduled to the coronavirus pandemic.

Since March, the NHRA had to make several changes to its schedule, as states were locked down until May when some states began having events without fans.
