J.R. Todd earns his 1st Top Fuel win of the season

MORRISON, Colo. — J.R. Todd earned his first Top Fuel win of the season and first since 2008, by racing to victory Sunday at the Mopar Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway.

Todd outran Brittany Force with a pass of 3.878 seconds at 317.87 mph to the losing pass of Force at 3.968 at 297.35. This is the second win at Bandimere Speedway for Todd, who claimed his first career NHRA Drag Racing Series win at the facility in 2006.

"These things are hard to come by whether you are full time or part time," said Todd, who returned to racing full time this season at the event in Gainesville.

"I knew at the time I got the opportunity to drive for the Kalitta group it was probably the best opportunity I was ever going to have to win one of these things."
