CONCORD, N.C. --

Melanie Troxel
NHRA fan favorite, Melanie Troxel got her first win in the Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series at the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Nationals on Sunday.

In the finals Troxel had a single run as Scott Ray wasn't able to make it to the line after he suffered an engine explosion in the semi-finals. Troxel still posted a strong number in the finals during a run of 5.938 seconds at 245.94 mph. Troxel now has wins in Funny Car, Top Fuel, Top Alcohol dragster and Pro Mod.

"I don't really focus on the female aspect of things but for me to win in four different categories in the NHRA is pretty special," said Troxel following the win. "To be honest I don't know if I will be running Pro Mod next year and I was starting to get a little worried that I have two more races left in the season and I was getting a little nervous about getting a win in before I might not run the class. It was great for it to come today.

The championship battle is still alive as Von Smith will have to wait until the final race in Las Vegas to try to claim his first Get Screened America Pro Mod Series Championship. Smith would have needed to win the race to claim the title but was defeated by Ray in the second round of eliminations.

The final event for the Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series will be at the NHRA Las Vegas Nationals on Oct. 28 - 31.
