The results may not be obvious, but Pro Stock driver Erica Enders and her Elite Motorsports/Mopar Dodge team continue to make progress in the 2016 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season. A semi final 4-Wide finish for Enders at the 7th Annual NHRA 4-Wide Nationals presented by Lowes on Sunday moved her up the standings in championship points to the No. 7 position.
We learned a lot this weekend,” Enders said. “We completely used this race as a test session for us. I’m glad we were able to learn some stuff, and we certainly made a move in the right direction. The things we figured out this week we’ll apply to Houston. Our rigs were supposed to go directly to Houston, but they’re going to go back to the shop and we’re going to work on our race cars and try to do our best to win in our hometown next week.”
First round was a much better run for us,” Enders said. “But by no means was it a great run. That was encouraging.”
To me, that part’s easy,” Enders said. “That’s my job, to be focused. I really pride myself on my driving techniques. I try to perform as perfectly as possible every time. There are a lot of extra distractions here at this event, and I feel like we’re the best in the world. We proved it two years in a row, and we’re just going to keep getting better.”
