MORRISON, Colo. (July 14, 2021) – Brittany Force and her Monster Energy Dragster team have continued to knock on the door of victory through the first seven races of the 2021 NHRA Camping World Series season. Force heads to the Dodge//SRT Mile-High NHRA Nationals at Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver sitting fourth in points, only six out of the top three.
Force and the Monster Energy team raced to their second runner-up finish of the season, 25th of Force’s career at the most recent event in Norwalk, Ohio. Even without the win, the team left their mark setting the track ET record. Led by crew chiefs David Grubnic and Mac Savage, Force and her Monster Energy / Flav-R-Pac team have had two No. 1 qualifying positions in the 2021 season, both coming at four-wide events at Charlotte and Las Vegas. Each of her No. 1 qualifiers have been shared with John Force Racing teammates, Robert Hight in Vegas and her father John Force in Charlotte. At the Charlotte event, Force also set both ends of the zMAX Dragway track record and had her first runner-up finish.
“After a couple weeks off our Monster Energy / Flav-R-Pac team is ready to get back to it,” Force said. “We head to the mountain for the Mile-High Nationals in Denver and coming off a runner-up finish in Ohio, we feel confident going into this next one and getting the Western Swing started. Our car has been running consistent and our team is ready for a win.”
Force is chasing her first win at Bandimere Speedway. The 2017 Top Fuel world champion has one runner-up finish at the venue coming in 2014. While she’s yet to qualifying No. 1, she has never qualified outside of the top 10 and when Force last competed at the event, she had a semifinal finish after landing the No. 4 qualifying position.
The Dodge//SRT Mile-High NHRA Nationals at Bandimere Speedway will have three qualifying runs beginning Friday at 8:15 p.m. CT and continuing Saturday at 5:15 and 8:15 p.m. Eliminations are set to begin Sunday at 11 a.m. Television coverage will be on FOX Sport 1 (FS1) with qualifying coverage Saturday at 2 p.m. ET and Sunday at 3 p.m. ET.
