CONGRATS TO LEAH PRITCHETT ON HER NHRA WINTERNATIONALS WIN...

It certainly does appear that when Leah Pritchett recorded the unofficial quickest pass in NHRA history a couple weeks ago during an Arizona testing session, she was indeed serving notice that the 2017 season will see her compete as a substantial threat among the ultra-tough Top Fuel field-- And her win this past weekend at the 57th annual Circle K NHRA Winternationals, at her home track in Pomona, California, really secured that notion... Congratulations are absolutely in order to Leah Pritchett and her Papa Johns's Top Fuel Pizza crew on scoring victory at the very first national event of the 2017 NHRA racing season. Leah was the number one qualifier at the Winternationals, and went on to defeat heavyweights like Doug Kalitta, Steve Torrence and Tony Schumacher to make it all the way to the winner's circle. (And congratulations to Matt Hagan on his Funny Car win, and Jason Line for defeating all his opponents in the Pro Stock class)... It's also definitely worth noting that Mike, of our brand new Mike & Barbara NHRA event prognosticator couple, successfully picked Leah to win the race. So maybe there really is something to be said for Mike's & Barbara's approach of using hard facts and extensive research when making their winner picks. For the upcoming NHRA Arizona Nationals, we'll see our old mainstay couple Franky & Felicia try their hand at predicting the winners. Of course it's common knowledge that Franky & Felicia don't base many of their picks on hard facts and extensive research, they take a much more, uh, loose and casual approach to their prognosticating duties. It should be interesting to see which of the two couples wind up with more successful picks in the winners' column this season...
