NHRA Four-Wide Nationals In Las Vegas Top Fuel Final Won By Brittany Force

While the final on Sunday was not advertised as an All-Star event, the fans were treated to something special when the divisions last 8 champions with a total of 16 championships among the 4 drivers hit the tree. The NHRA Four Wide Nationals once again provided all the drama that fans have come to expect from the Camping World NHRA Drag Racing Series as Brittany Force, Antron Brown, Steve Torrence and Tony Schumacher matched up in the Top Fuel Finale.

Brittany Force beat up her more decorated competitors with a stout 3.718 in her David Grubnic-tuned Monster Energy dragster. Force finished ahead of four-wide dominator Torrence, stopping his win streak at three straight as the reigning world chap finished second with a 3.756 ahead of Tony Schumacher and Antron Brown, both of whom lost traction. All four finalists were appearing in their first final rounds of the season.

"To be able to look at that final quad and see the guys that we were good enough to pull up next to and then beat them all, it's something that we're very proud of," said Force. "I'm proud just to share the lanes with those guys to be able to race against them. I watched Tony Schumacher when I was out here watching my dad as a kid, so to be able to line up next to him is just something very exciting, and then to turn the win light on is even better.

"We had an awesome race. We qualified pretty well, No. 2, and we got four qualifying sessions this weekend and three out of the four were pretty dang good, so going in today was just consistency."

It was Force’s second four-wide win on the heels of her triumph at the 2016 event in Charlotte and her first victory since last year’s Topeka event.

RPM Round By Round:

Round 1 - Brittany Force faced Steve Torrence, Josh Hart & Cameron Ferre in round 1 and the runner up position was good enough to move her forward in 4 wide competition.

Round 2 - Round 2 added Shawn Langdon and Leah Pruett along with Steve Torrence but the end result stayed the same with Force and Torrence moving on. This time Force won the round running a strong 3.725 at 329.58 MPH.

Round 3 - In 4 wide competition, round 3 dec ides who takes home the Wally and Force would not be denied against the all-star field. Adding Antron Brown and Tony Shumacher to the mix along with Torrence, Force got there first with a run of 3.718 at 338.00 MPH.
