Most eight-year-old's biggest accomplishment is making it through lunch without spilling something on their shirt. What was California native Leah Pritchett doing at eight years old? Racing Jr. Dragsters. And winning. That's one tough eight-year-old. You thought you were hard when you could wheelie on your bike. Meanwhile, Leah was amassing 37 career wins during eight years of competition before she could legally drive a full size drag race car. At 18, Leah became the first woman to run five seconds in a Nostalgia Funny car that she built with her own ridiculously talented racing hands and a little help from her dad.
What followed after was a string of victories and unprecedented awesomeness. She's been a Hot Rod Heritage Series Champion and record setter. She was the highest finishing Top Fuel driver during the 2014 season that did not compete in the full 24-race schedule, and 2015 saw Pritchett come within inches of winning her first top fuel event, losing to eventual series champion Antron Brown.
In 2016, Pritchett edged out Brittany Force in an NHRA Top Fuel Final, becoming only the second woman to defeat another woman in a Top Fuel final. It was her second appearance in the finals and her 47th career Top Fuel start. She’s a damn good driver, worthy of being sponsored by a damn good oil.
