CHANDLER, Ariz. (Feb. 24, 2022) – Brittany Force will change things up at this weekend’s NHRA Arizona Nationals running her Flav-R-Pac Frozen Fruits and Vegetables livery for the first time in the 2022 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series season. Heading to Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park sitting No. 3 in the points standings, the Flav-R-Pac / Monster Energy team will look to capitalize on their season-opening success.
Seeming to pick up right where they left off, Brittany Force and the Monster Energy team are coming off a strong season-opening performance at the Winternationals. The David Grubnic and mac Savage led tuned team entered race day from No. 1 for the 33rd time in Force’s career and the 19th time in her last 30 starts.
“I’m glad to have the first race of the season under my belt. This Flav-R-Pac team had a good weekend at our season opener in Pomona with a No. 1 qualifier and semi-final round appearance,” Force said. “We have a great team around us with David Grubnic, Mac Savage and all our guys. We’re working well together and I’m very proud of what we accomplished at the Winternationals.”
Force will be trying to earn John Force Racing’s first win at the Arizona Nationals outside of the Funny Car class. Although she has not yet won the event, she did reach the final round in 2014, 2016 and 2017. In her most recent appearance, she set both ends of the track record (3.643 seconds at 337.92 mph on Feb. 23, 2020) before a quarterfinal exit.
“Our Flav-R-Pac / Monster Energy team just came from testing at Wild Horse Pass and David Grubnic and Mac Savage liked our numbers. So, we all feel confident returning to that track,” Force said. “I’m looking for a strong weekend and our first win of the season.
