In a sport dominated by men, the women of the NHRA have and continue to leave their mark on the sport. McLeod Racing would like to honor the NHRA Mello Yello female driver that wins the 100th event with a $10,000 cash reward.

In 1976 Shirley Muldowney was the first female to win a Professional NHRA event. Since then the NHRA has seen a host of world class female NHRA winning drivers like Erica Enders-Stevens, Alexis Dejoria, Ashley and Courtney Force, Angelle Sampey, Melanie Troxel, and Shelly Payne, to name just a few.

If the driver of the 100th NHRA female event winner is displaying the provided McLeod Racing logo on their race car, then McLeod Racing will present that driver a $10,000 reward. Drivers must contact McLeod Racing for eligibility details.

"I’m proud that our company has chosen to honor the women of our sport,” says Paul Lee, NHRA Funny Car Driver and McLeod Racing owner. “Their contribution to our sport has helped fuel its growth and brought many more fans to the NHRA. I can’t wait to see who wins our $10,000 cash!”
