Antron Brown has an illustrious NHRA career and has won three Top Fuel world championships, Leah Pritchett joined Don Schumacher Racing in 2016 and won her first Top Fuel national event that year, and Tommy Johnson Jr. is one of 15 drivers to have won events in both Top Fuel and Funny Car and one of 18 drivers in NHRA history to qualify No. 1 in both Top Fuel and Funny Car.
