2014 NHRA: Alexis Dejoria Makes NHRA History At Pomona Winternationals; 1st Woman To Make 3-Second Funny Car Run

History was made at the 54th annual Circle K NHRA Winternationals as Alexis DeJoria became the first woman ever to run in the three second zone in her 10,000 horsepower Kalitta Motorsports Patrón XO Cafe Toyota Camry Funny Car on Saturday at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.

Now officially the quickest female ever to compete in the Funny Car category, DeJoria became the 9th Funny Car driver to join the coveted ‘three second club’ as she powered her XO Cafe hot rod down the 1,000-foot stretch in 3.997-seconds at 318.32-mph during the third qualifying session.

“It feels absolutely amazing to come out to the first race of the season in Pomona, California and make a three second run, and be a part of that exclusive ‘three second club.’ I always knew we had it in us; it was just a matter of time,” said DeJoria. “We’ve learned so much. We’ve got an awesome car, and everything has really come together. I’m so proud of my guys, and so excited we were able to make history in front of all of our family and friends, in our new car with our new colors. This definitely sets the tone for what is sure to be an awesome season.”

Out of 21 cars on the property, the 3.997-sec ET held up to be the low of the session, allowing DeJoria the advantage of three bonus points. DeJoria goes into Sunday’s eliminations qualified in the No.3 spot on the 16-car ladder, and will face Gary Densham in Round One of Eliminations.
