Alexis DeJoria Racing
SANTA MONICA, CA – Alexis DeJoria will once again strap into the seat of a nitro Funny Car when she returns to NHRA competition full-time in 2020. After a two-year hiatus, DeJoria will make her reentry into the sport beginning with the 2020 NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, Calif.
DeJoria made her NHRA debut at the 2011 Texas NHRA FallNationals and went on to win five races, including the prestigious 2014 NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, before hanging up her helmet at the conclusion of the 2017 season.
The saying ‘once a racer, always a racer,’ held true for DeJoria, who, despite enjoying a slightly slower-paced lifestyle for the past two years, felt herself longing to get back behind the wheel of an 11,000-horsepower machine.
“I honestly knew deep down when I made the announcement to retire at the end of the 2017 NHRA season that it was going to be sort of an open-ended retirement,” said the fan-favorite who will compete in the full 24-race NHRA circuit.
