A year ago, Erica Enders was drawing names out of a hat and making bets with her team on who would win the inaugural DRAG ILLUSTRATED World Series of Pro Mod.
This year, she’s betting on herself.
The two-time Pro Stock world champion has officially thrown her name into the hat as a participant in 2018, as Enders will compete Aug. 10-11 in the World Series of Pro Mod at Bandimere Speedway.
Enthralled with the high-stakes, winner-take-all Pro Mod action of the inaugural race in 2017, Enders, who made her NHRA Pro Mod debut earlier this year, literally jumped at the opportunity when handed the invitation by Drag Illustrated Founder and Editorial Director Wes Buck.
“I was so excited. I was jumping up and down like a little kid. I’m super stoked,” Enders said on Buck’s Facebook Live show. “It was so exciting watching the live feed and the craziness that the race was, and to now be a part of it, I’m so excited and so honored.”
Oddly enough, Enders drew WSOPM winner Mike Bowman’s name out of the hat during her team’s friendly wagers a year ago, though her prize fell well short of the $100,000 Bowman took home in 2017.
