Brittany Force wins NHRA New England Nationals

Brittany Force won the NHRA New England Nationals on Sunday.

It was the first Top Fuel victory of the season for Force, the daughter of Funny Car star John Force.

She beat Antron Brown in the final with a 3.716-second pass at 328.62.

“We figured things out in Topeka (in the last event) and I felt like we had our team back, so we knew our first win would be right around the corner for us,” Force said. “The key to it all is our team sticking together and not giving up, and it definitely paid dividends today.”

Brown, meanwhile, had a 3.728 at 327.98.
