While Brittany has become increasingly comfortable in the cockpit, which features a canopy like that on the car of reigning world champion Antron Brown, she is anxious to return to a more traditional drag racing format after experiencing four-wide racing for the first time last week at Charlotte, N.C.
“Now we’ll go back to normal with only two cars at a time and I can work on my normal routine,” she said in a press release. “The four-wide is definitely fun and exciting, but I wish I would have had a little more time to get used to it.”
Like most drivers, she is also glad to be back at another race track this week with another (Atlanta Dragway) on the schedule the week after that.
“I think back-to-back racing is helpful for the driver and the team,” said the future school teacher. “I get more comfortable in the car and with the staging process. When you have time between races, a lot of times, when you come back, you feel like you’re starting over.
“I’m still learning on each run. I’m working on improving my lights (reaction times) and just getting more comfortable with the process. Hopefully, we can go some rounds this week and continue to move up in the Mello Yello points.”
