LOS ANGELES --
The former Super Comp and Top Alcohol Dragster racer qualified in 22 of 24 events during the 2013 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, qualified in the top half of the Top Fuel field five times, and won ten rounds of racing. She was the lone rookie to compete in the 2nd Traxxas Shootout qualifying as the fan vote and lottery winner in Top Fuel.
"Brittany Force is so deserving of this award and on behalf of everyone at Castrol and especially the Castrol EDGE brand we want to say congratulations. Brittany's performance on the track her rookie season in a new class was a learning process but she showed how important it is to be Driven Stronger as she improved every race. Her poise and charm with the media were tremendous and we know she has a growing fan base that followed her all season long," said Lori Anne Gola, Castrol, Sports Marketing, Sponsor Relations, and Promotions
Force is the fifth JFR driver to win this coveted award and its $20,000 payday.
