Erica Enders eager to go racing at her
all-time favorite track -- Bristol Dragway

BRISTOL, Tenn. (June 14) - Like with most things in life, people have favorites.
 Some may have a favorite pizza joint, while others may have a favorite golf course
they like to play. Most times these favorite places are special to a person for 
a reason unique to them.

Bristol Dragway is one of those favorite places for two-time world champion NHRA
 Pro Stock driver Erica Enders. This weekend as the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing
 Series competes in the 17th annual NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals, Enders will be
at her favorite race track with high hopes of even more success at the picturesque

In her back-to-back championship years of 2014 and 2015, the feisty 33-year-old 
driver of the Elite Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro took home Wallys from the Thunder
Valley Nationals. That stat in itself is enough to make a track near and dear to
 her heart, but she also has two runner-up finishes (2013 and 2011) and a No. 1 
qualifying effort in 2015 at Bristol Dragway.

"Bristol is my favorite track on tour and I'm not saying that because we are going
there this weekend, it just is," Enders said. "I've had a lot of success there in
the past and we are looking to carry our momentum from our win in Epping on through
to Bristol and just do the best we can."

Two weekends ago in Epping, N.H., the Houston native, broke through for her first
win since the 2015 fall race in Las Vegas. Even though she and her team struggled
to continue their ascension back to the top of the Pro Stock elite last weekend 
in Englishtown, N.J., the New Orleans resident sees their setback only as an anomaly.

"We continue to feel like we're on the rise," Enders said. "Throw E-town out the
 window because that track was in really bad shape. The starting line was completely
bald and it was freshly ground when we showed up with the worst grind job we've 
ever seen. If you look at the Pro Stock field collectively, from 1-10 was one hundredth
of a second apart so the starting line was a huge equalizer. You couldn't be aggressive
at all down low, you just had to kinda baby it through low gear to get it to go 
down the race track. Like I said, I don't think our performance this past weekend
is indicative of what we are capable of at all."

It's said of the atmospheric conditions in East Tennessee, "Don't like the weather
now, just wait five minutes." With a moving target as far as the weather goes, Enders
knows getting the right tune-up in her Elite Motorsports Camaro will be a thorny

"You know it will probably be hot and tricky there," Enders said. "Bristol also 
has a few bumpy spots so it will definitely be a survival-of-the-fittest type weekend.
It's okay because like I always say, I'll put my money on us every time."

The Pro Stock racers hit the track Friday with two qualifying sessions at 5 and 
7:30 p.m. They return for two more qualifying sessions Saturday at 1 and 3:30 p.m.
First round of eliminations began Sunday at 1 p.m. NHRA TV coverage on Fox FS1 includes
original Bristol programming on Friday at 8 p.m., on Saturday at 11 p.m., and on
 Sunday at 6:30 p.m. (Times are local and subject to change.)
