As soon as Leah Pruett hops out from behind the wheel of her Top Fuel car, she'll be making her way back to the Factory Stock pits because this new baby is waiting for her. It is the 2021 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak. The first one to come off the assembly line and this one has got LP's name all over it. Now what you get from these cars, it's a factory-built race car. So you're gonna get a 354-cid engine with the new 3.0-liter Whipple supercharger producing. Well over 1,400 horsepower.

You look inside the cage. This is all the matter and accouterments you would want out of a race car of today. It still has power windows but has Racepak Smart Wire technology and is a massive upgrade over the car that Leah had been racing in the past few years, which was initially a 2007 that had been updated many times. Now under the back half of the car, which you can't see right now, is kind of where the magic happens in these things because you've got a nine-inch tire you're trying to get 1400 horsepower to and get it to the ground. So a lot of work, a lot of time and energy has been spent on the actual suspension of this ride.

So Leah's going to make her way back here shortly. And she is driving the wheel of been brand new ride that only in just a few tests runs is put her soundly in the Factory Stock Showdown field.
