Brittany Force and the Flav-R-Pac / Monster Energy Chevrolet dragster team head into the city that never sleeps sitting second in the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series. They’ll be looking for a win at the NHRA Nevada Nationals at the Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to solidify their fight for a second title.
Force has won both events at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway including the four-wide race this spring in which she beat Steve Torrence, Tony Schumacher and Antron Brown in the final. She also won the fall race in 2019, ending that season with two victories and a second-place finish in championship. As the No. 1 qualifier at the 2021 Nevada Nationals, Force raced her way to the semifinals and in 2017 finished runner-up at the fall, the year she became just the second woman to win a Top Fuel world championship and the first in 35 years.
“Two races left in the season and our Flav-R-Pac / Monster Energy team heads to Sin City this weekend. We are currently sitting in second position and still have a shot at getting back the points lead,” Force said. “We need four solid passes during qualifying and need to land back in the winners circle. We won this event in the spring and are confident we can do it again.”
Owner of the 10 fastest speeds in Top Fuel history, Force is trying to win five races for the first time in her career. Just 82-points off the lead and sitting second, she is well positioned to become the fourth woman in NHRA pro drag racing history to win multiple championships (after Shirley Muldowney, Enders and Angelle Sampey).
Competition at the NHRA Nevada Nationals, the second to last event on the NRHA Camping World Drag Racing Series season, begins with qualifying Friday at 1:00 and 4:15 p.m. and Saturday at 12:30 and 4:00 p.m. Eliminations are slated to begin Sunday at 11:00 a.m. Television coverage of the event will be on FOX Sports 1 (FS1) on Sunday beginning with qualifying at 2:00 p.m. ET and eliminations at 4 p.m. ET
