On this return episode of the NHRA Insider Podcast, Leah Pruett joins host Brian Lohnes for an in-depth interview about the 2020 season which was both successful and tumultuous for the driver of the Mopar SRT Dodge top fuel dragster. The talk ranges from the start, the stop, life, the mental aspects of the sport, and how pressures both real and imagined weigh on a driver’s performance in drag racing.
Leah’s take is interesting because it goes far beyond the surface. You’ll look at the season and her season differently after you hear her talk about how the changes on race day routines, responsibilities, and habits changed the way that she attacked NHRA top fuel over the course of 2020. We talk about the wild St Louis wreck and a whole lot more. A truly cool conversation with Leah.
There’s also a cool musical look back over the incredible final rounds of 2020 in the pro stock motorcycle category! Listen to all the final round calls set to come music that NHRA fans will recognize!
