There are so many great racers who paved the way for myself, Alexis (DeJoria), my sister Brittany (Force), Erica (Ender-Stevens) and Leah (Pritchett). We were all going for that 100th win and I am so proud my Traxxas team got that win in Topeka. I have to thank Mello Yello, the NHRA and my sponsor Traxxas for giving me this opportunity,” said Force.
