NHRA Milestones: Kalitta, DeJoria, Force & More

Milestones have been on the mind since Doug Kalitta won his 50th NHRA national event on Monday at Pennsylvania’s Maple Grove Raceway. Kalitta wasn’t the only one with a milestone on his mind this season. Next, the 47-year-old will check off his 500th national event start on Sunday at the Betway NHRA Carolina Nationals as he simultaneously chases his 75th career victory. At the top end of the Pennsylvania drag strip, Hight secured his second consecutive win at Maple Grove and his 64th career Funny Car victory. At the Route 66 Nationals in May, 12-year Funny Car driver Alexis DeJoria made her 200th career start.
