Antron Brown qualified the pinked-out Matco Tools ‘Tools for the Cause’ dragster eighth during its final outing of the 2021 season and drew DSR teammate Leah Pruett as his first-round competitor. Against Pruett, Brown was up in smoke early into the run, he gave it a quick pedal but his machine let go with a small fireball shortly after, denying the defending event champ any opportunity to chase his teammate down.
“We did pretty well in qualifying this weekend with the pink Matco Tools for the Cause colors making two good runs on Saturday. We just pushed too hard today. This certainly isn’t how we wanted to end this race given we won here a year ago, but we have two weeks to until Pomona. We have one race left to go out and show out. We have to lick our wounds and get ready for the Finals to end on a strong note.”
