Erica Enders Wins 2019

Erica Enders is the 2019 NHRA Pro Stock World Champion

By claiming a third world championship, Enders joins Angelle Sampey and Shirley Muldowney as the only females in NHRA history to win three world titles.

Congratulations to Melling Performance sponsored driver, Erica Enders and Elite Motorsports on being crowned the 2019 NHRA Pro Stock World Champion.

“This one means a lot because of the valleys we’ve been through. It was a challenge for us and I’m thrilled. It’s just an awesome feeling to be back on top, and it’s the reason why you never give up,” Enders said. 

By claiming a third world championship, Enders joins Angelle Sampey and Shirley Muldowney as the only females in NHRA history to win three world titles, while she also becomes the lowest-seeded driver to win a championship in Pro Stock after starting the playoffs in fifth. 

She ends the year with two wins and five finals appearances, giving Enders 25 career wins – with the Vegas win giving females the 150th overall in NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series history – and 51 finals berths. The championship also gave Enders a chance to reflect on the wild ride she’s been on to get back to this point.

“To give your whole life to something, it’s been a really long road and it hasn’t been easy at all,” Enders said. “You persevere and you just never give up. It’s very challenging to be a part of it, but I love what I do and I love the guys that I get to do it with. I’m honored to be a three-time world champion and represent a sport I love and that I’m so passionate about. For all my guys who sacrifice time with their kids and wives, it means the world to me. I’m glad we did this together as a family.”
