Melling Performance/Elite Performance Pro Stock driver Erica Enders had a great day. She first won the Championship at the 20th annual Dodge NHRA Finals presented by Pennzoil on Sunday at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Enders also won the season-ending Wally at the event, as well. She defeated Pennsylvania-based Pro Stock driver Kyle Koretsky in the final round.

The Texas-based driver went 6.643 at 206.39 mph to get the Wally. Koretsky — who is a rookie — went red, thus throwing away his run.

“It’s no secret that I’ve struggled this year, the last couple of years honestly,” Enders said. “It’s been an uphill battle. I speak so highly of these guys, and I mean it from the bottom of my heart. Between (crew chiefs) Rick Jones, Mark Ingersoll and Rickie Jones, (team owner) Richard Freeman has organized the most amazing group of people. All of these guys, they give their lives to this. 

“I could not be more proud. I’m so blessed. I’ve never been in a situation like that where I’ve depended on other people to handle it for us. I love this life I get to live.”

This was the first-time that the two drivers faced each other in a Pro Stock race. 

The race was over shortly before it began when Koretsky went red. He was -0.051 red.

Enders won her fourth Pro Stock Championship in her career at the event. She has won the 2019 and 2020 Pro Stock Championships.

In addition, she also won the 2014 and 2015 Pro Stock Championships.
