Leah Pruett, driver of the Code 3 Associates Top Fuel Dragster:
This Code 3 Associates dragster hot rod is phenomenal. Our team is putting in the work. Track conditions got more tricky as the day went on. I felt like I had absolutely nailed it off the hit, but the timing on my sheet showed otherwise. That is why we are this team because we will go out there and regroup and press on. That’s what Tony Stewart Racing is all about. Today was a tuner’s game. For all the fans in the stands, I want you to know that all these racecars go down the track because of the crew members you see working day in and day out in the pits. For Neal Strausbaugh, this is his second year as lead crew chief. Mike Domagala (co-crew chief), Ryan McGilvry (car chief) and all my guys are what make this car go fast. To be honest, slowing the car down is one of the most difficult things for teams to do to make the car consistent. You have two championship-winning drivers and teams in Brittany Force and Antron Brown. Even though we’re competing against them, those are the goals we are looking forward to. There’s so much that goes into the ingenuity and mechanics of racing and there are so many job opportunities out here. For our Code 3 Associates team, we’re going to keep pushing.
