Prior to last night’s even, no woman in history had ever one a four-wide drag race. Brittany Force is now officially the first woman in history to win a race after coming in first place in Sunday’s seventh-annual NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at the zMax Dragway.
“It’s just all surreal, it’s big enough that we won, but to do it at the four-wide wasn’t easy for me. This was a struggle, and I didn’t even sleep last night.” Brittany commented about being the first woman to win the event.
Her dragster clocked an astounding 3.764-second time, topping out at 319.98 mph. Two-time and defending Top Fuel champion Antron Brown finished second, Doug Kalitta finished third, and Clay Millican fourth.
She will be traveling down to Houston this weekend for the SpringNationals, and she is now also holds the top spot in the Top Fuel standings, 63 markers ahead of Brown.
