Reigning NHRA Pro Stock world champion Erica Enders and Elite Motorsports team owner Richard Freeman will appear on the premier episode of Jay Leno's Garage, which will air Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET on CNBC and will feature Enders teaching the talk-show host/comedian and car enthusiast how to drive a drag race car.
“It will be a great way to introduce the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series to a new audience,” Enders said. “That was a great experience and a neat opportunity. I grew up watching Jay Leno and always enjoyed him throughout my life, so it was cool to be able to work with him. He shares the same passion for automobiles that we do, and that was pretty evident.”
Leno has a stellar collection of automobiles, and he invited Enders and Freeman to tour his collection when NHRA returns to California for the season-finale in November. For more on this story, visit www.NHRA.com.
