Leah Pritchett, a California native, kicked off her interest in drag racing at a very early age. As soon as she was old enough, Leah got behind the wheel of a full size drag race car and continued to light-up the scoreboard in the 190mph sportsman division. At just 18 years old, she built a Nostalgia Nitro Funny car with her father Ron and became the first woman to run five seconds in a Nostalgia Funny Car. She also set the world record for the fastest Nostalgia Nitro Funny Car, being the first person to break 250 mph.
Today, Leah is one of the most well-respected Top Fuel Dragster pilots in the NHRA and took three wins in the 2017 Mello Yello NHRA season and broke the Top Fuel national time record with a 3.658-second pass at 329.34 mph at the NHRA Arizona Nationals.
Every racer has a collection of toys at home, and Leah’s vehicles are MagnaFlow-equipped with the latest performance cat-back exhaust systems, most notably, her #MFEquipped Dodge Challenger Hellcat.
