Top Fuel Pilot Leah Pritchett moves to Don Schumacher Racing


Leah Pritchett will compete in the next NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event in 10 days near Atlanta as the fourth woman to drive for Don Schumacher Racing when she pilots the FireAde Top Fuel dragster.

It’s been a whirlwind year for the winner of the NHRA Top Fuel event title at this year’s second race when she joins the biggest team in professional drag racing and drives a fourth Top Fuel dragster that will be the eighth nitro team for DSR, which has won 14 NHRA world championships and 269 Mello Yello titles.

This development brings her nitro career full circle. The 27-year-old native of Redlands, Calif., who lives in Avon, Ind., earned her nitro Funny Car license with DSR eight years ago.
