Former Nostalgia Funny Car Champ Moves To NHRA Top Fuel

This is just a quick note on the fact that Leah Pruett, who was the Nostalgia Funny Car champion back in 2010, will be moving up the ranks to the fastest cars in the world, the ground-thumping NHRA Top Fuel class.  Pruett will be  piloting the Dote Racing Top Fueler for the 2013 season (source: Examiner).  The Dote family is planning for a full season but will at the very least, be competing part-time this year as in seasons past.

Leah made history a few short years ago driving the “Plueger & Gyger” Mustang, where she became the first woman to ever win the famous March Meet.  She beat a 32-car field, the first of its size in decades.  Very competitive all year, she would eventually end that season with a Hot Rod Heritage Series championship – again, another first for a woman.  She then left to drive a Pro-Mod monster for Roger Burgess.

We wish the 24 year old Californian all the best during the 2013 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule.  Nostalgia drag racing is the best platform for becoming a drag racing star and here’s hoping more Nostalgia talent moves their way up the ladder of success.

    Wow…I’m impressed. Looks like another huge marketing potential, similar to our friend Danica. Nothing like being good looking and having the driving skills and prowess to go with it … or it the other way around?

  2. Looks like she may end up going up against Courtney Force! 🙂
