NHRA Top Fuel racer Leah Pritchett, who did a portion of the development driving for the 2018 Dodge Demon, will run a special Dodge Demon livery on her Don Schumacher Racing dragster at this weekend’s NHRA New England Nationals.
In addition to her 11,000 horsepower dragster, Pritchett’s firesuit will also carry the Demon-branding. The 29-year old California native has had a strong start to the 2017 Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season, winning three event titles, setting the world elapsed time record and taking two pole positions. She’s now ranked No. 1 in the world in the Top Fuel category heading to New England.
“My role in development of the Demon started at the Englishtown track last year and it will be very cool to see it come full circle when I drive my 330-mph Demon Top Fueler this weekend at Epping and then take it to Englishtown,” said Pritchett, who attended the reveal of the 2018 Demon in New York City earlier this year.
“We get to represent the quickest, non-modified production car with the Demon, and we get to do it on the track in the quickest, modified, non-production car on the planet,” she added.
The NHRA New England Nationals will kick off on June 2nd.
