    NHRA Drag Racer Leah Pritchett Talks Racing, Challenges and Challengers

    NHRA Drag Racer Leah Pritchett Talks Racing, Challenges and Challengers-webp-net-compress-image_56_0-jpg

    NHRA Drag Racer Leah Pritchett blew the doors off the competition at the Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals Powered by Mopar. It was a big weekend for Pritchett who helped introduce the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320.

    It was a huge weekend for 30-year-old Leah Pritchett as she rocketed her way to victory at the Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals Powered by Mopar. On Thursday, she was selected to introduce the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320, doing a burn out to illustrate the power of the new Dodge. She demonstrated the Mopar Dodge power all weekend long, not only winning but setting a track record of 327.19 mph during her top fuel dragster qualifying.

    This was Pritchett’s first win at Bandimere Speedway near Denver, the 11th win of her career and puts her third in the overall standings.

    Pritchett’s Mopar Dodge Top Fuel Dragster was sporting a large 1320 in honor of introducing the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320. It was also sporting a large ‘Angry Bee’ logo, the same logo on the new Challenger.

    Big Victory for Dodge and Pritchett
    Dodge has sponsored the NHRA races at Bandimere outside Denver for 30 years, but this was the first year as the title sponsor. Pritchett admits that it is pretty special to win your sponsor’s race. “I think there is something different about pressure. You can look at it as, you have to do well at your sponsor’s race, or you have a partner who believes in you, and all the people there bring that vibe and that energy. Like I said, we have our own zip code on the Mopar midway, and pitting with (Matt) Hagan and his new (Mopar Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat) body. You can look at it two ways, as pressure or positive momentum, and that’s what happened this entire weekend.”
