After winning the last two races in the School of Automotive Machinists & Technology NHRA Factory Stock Showdown, Leah Pritchett is now in a prime position to be crowned the series champ in the special event, which features factory-built race cars from Dodge, Ford, and Chevrolet. After driving to a semifinal finish in her Papa John’s Pizza Top Fuel dragster, Pritchett quickly buckled into the seat of her Kevin Helms-tuned Drag Pak Challenger to take on fellow championship contender Stephen Bell in the Factory Stock final. Pritchett turned on the win light with an 8.00, 172.36 mph after Bell’s COPO Camaro stalled on the starting line.
