(02-04-2018) – Once the Super Bowl is over, a new NHRA season begins with the Winternationals at Pomona, California!! Last year was a remarkable one for 29 year old Leah Pritchett who grew up in Redlands piloting junior dragsters with her sister, and eventually staged one of the more remakable career comebacks in 2016 when she lost her sponsor in mid-season, and rebounded in 2017 with 5 top fuel victories!
Leah joins us in Talkiing About Cars #105 and talks about the upcoming season, her thing about Mopars (she was sitting in her Dodge Hellcat during her phone interview in the middle of a mild snowfall in Indianapolis), explaining what non-Mopar car she’s always wanted to put a Mopar crate engine in (it’s a bit of an eyebrow raiser), who she considers her main rival in Top Fuel, and the top 3 cars on her “must have list”!
Thanks also to our TAC pal Bob Beck from GAAS, the Great American Auto Scene (got GAAS.com) for guest hosting. Bob and I are working on some fun car podcast ideas for the future, so “stay tuned” for that!!
