Five-time NHRA Pro Stock world champion Erica Enders has become the winningest woman in motorsports after earning her 47th career national event win at the Texas NHRA FallNationals at Texas Motorplex behind the wheel of her Johnson’s Horsepowered Garage/Melling Performance/SCAG Power Equipment Camaro.
“This one means a lot,” said Enders. “As a little girl that was eight years old with big dreams to be a professional driver one day, in my Jr. Dragster, then making my way through the Lucas Oil series, and now being here (in the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series) for 20 years, this Wally will sit proudly among a few other special ones. I give God all the glory… Richard Freeman gave me an opportunity 10 years ago and we’ve never looked back. For JHG, Melling, SCAG, Gallagher, Peoplease and all of our supporters, we got it done today!”
Enders’ career features many landmark achievements, including being the first woman to win a national event and a world championship in the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series Pro Stock category, the latter of which she’s secured five times.
