Brittany Force wins NHRA New England Nationals

EPPING, N.H. (AP) Brittany Force won the NHRA New England Nationals on Sunday for her first Top Fuel victory of the season and fourth overall.

The daughter of Funny Car star John Force, she beat Antron Brown in the final with a 3.716-second pass at 328.62 mph.

''We figured things out in Topeka (in the last event) and I felt like we had our team back so we knew our first win would be right around the corner for us,'' Force said. ''The key to it all is our team sticking together and not giving up, and it definitely paid dividends today.''

Brown had a 3.728 at 327.98.

Matt Hagan won in Funny Car, and Erica Enders topped the Pro Stock field.

Hagan raced to his third victory of the season and 25th overall, beating Courtney Force - Brittany Force's sister - with a 3.897 at 332.59 in a Dodge Charger.

Enders won for the first time this season and 22nd time overall. She had a 6.534 at 213.16 in a Chevrolet Camaro to edge Tanner Gray.
