Leah Pritchette is a top fuel superstar who is known for making the fastest pass in the history of the NHRA. She’s also a known for her love of Dodge, as evident by the recent interview we had the pleasure of doing with her at the SEMA 2017 show. She also daily drives a 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat, and she recently stopped by Hoonigan’s Donut Garage with her daily driver to show off and have some fun.
This isn’t Leah’s first visit to Hoonigan, she was on a different webseries to talk about her favorite things and her history. In there video, Leah jokes around with Hertech “Hert” Eugene Jr., Jon Chase, and Steven Kikawa at Hoonigan; at one point in the video, they have a foot race, another Hert bench presses the famous racer.
After some kidding around, the real fun begins when Leah hops in her Hellcat to “Space Race” against a RX7 that was built by John Vargas. This kind of tight space driving is when two cars line up and race at the Donut Garage from the beginning of a container to the end of a container.
So who takes it? Will it be the lightweight tuned rotary powered car? Or the big fat supercharged V8 powered American car driven by one of the best professional drivers over there? You’d be surprised at this outcome of all three races, and there was even a little risky moment in race two that had us wondering for a moment if Leah was going to get out swinging!
