Schumacher, DeJoria, Enders-Stevens Win at Vegas

Girl power reigns supreme in NHRA
Monday, March 31, 2014


Erica Enders-Stevens
Girl power reigned supreme as Alexis DeJoria (Funny Car) and Erica Enders-Stevens (Pro Stock) raced to victories Sunday at the NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Tony Schumacher (Top Fuel) also was a winner at the fourth event on the 2014 Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule.

It was the second time that two female drivers have earned victories at the same NHRA event. In 2012, Courtney Force and Enders-Stevens made history as the first pair of females to win the same race at Pacific Raceways near Seattle.

Coming into her third full-time season in Funny Car, DeJoria had only appeared in one career final. The 2014 season has changed the fortunes for her Patron XO Cafe Toyota Camry team as she outpaced Robert Hight with a 4.026-second pass at 309.98 mph. It’s the second win of her career following her breakthrough victory in Phoenix earlier this season, coincidentally also over Hight. 

"This was definitely a grudge match [with Hight] coming off our win in Phoenix," DeJoria said. "I was just in shock when we won there. It was gratifying and intense. Today my team gave me a good car and got me down the track first. I really appreciate them so much and all they give up to help this team go racing."

Alexis DeJoria
DeJoria defeated Matt Hagan, Tony Pedregon and Cruz Pedregon to reach her first final in Las Vegas, the home headquarters of her primary sponsor.

"It was a good day at the office, especially with the Patron Spirits company located right here in Las Vegas," DeJoria said.

DeJoria departs Las Vegas third in points and holds the most wins so far during the season. Despite losing in the final, Hight takes over the points lead.

Enders-Stevens had a successful weekend in Las Vegas, sweeping the K&N Horsepower Challenge and taking today’s Pro Stock title. After defeating Dave Connolly to win $50,000 on Saturday, Enders-Stevens took out Larry Morgan, Steve Kent, Chris McGaha and Jason Line to secure her seventh career victory at the controls of her Elite Motorsports Chevy Camaro.

After struggling to find sponsorship and only being able to race a partial schedule last season, Enders-Stevens is thankful for the opportunity that team owner Richard Freeman presented her for 2014.

"I have a different mindset," Enders-Stevens of her new attitude this year. "It goes back to the people [I'm around] - for the first time since I raced with my family as a kid, and then in the sportsman ranks, I'm having fun again. As a driver, it adds a lot of pressure when you have the fastest car, but I like that."

With that win, she became the third winningest female driver in a pro class behind only Angelle Sampey and Shirley Muldowney. She leaves Las Vegas as the Pro Stock points leader, becoming the first female in history to lead the point standings in the factory hot rod category.

"It certainly is very important to us, it keeps us going on this 24-race schedule," said Enders-Stevens, who earned $100,000 during the weekend which also includes a $25,000 Sweep Bonus from NHRA.  "This is storybook. We've gone a few years without sponsorship; there were definitely more lows than highs. It would have been easy to quit. This is definitely a highlight. Next to winning a championship, this is probably the coolest thing in the world."

In Top Fuel, Schumacher snapped a 15-race winless drought by beating points leader Doug Kalitta with a performance of 3.797 at 326.16 in his U.S. Army dragster. It was Schumacher’s 73rd career victory and his eighth at Las Vegas.

"The final round was fantastic, I could hear him the whole way," said Schumacher, who was racing in his 126th career Top Fuel final. "It was important for us to get this win. There's a lot of pressure early in the season to get a win and get into the Shootout for a chance to race for $100,000. I love the pressure. We're a high-pressure, adversity kind of team.”

Schumacher advanced to the final with early round wins over Troy Buff, Spencer Massey and Antron Brown.

"I'm not angry that we hadn't won in a long time,” Schumacher said. “I was disappointed, but I understand that you have to make leaps and bounds. Kalitta is running great, Antron (Brown) is running good, the Alan Johnson [Al-Anabi] cars are going to be bad to the bone pretty soon. We have to keep forcing the issue."

Kalitta has had the best start to the season in Top Fuel and continued that by reaching his third final of the year. With the win in Gainesville and the two runner-up finishes at Pomona and Las Vegas, Kalitta increased his points lead over Brown to 73 points.
