Wins Titus Award from American Auto Racing Writers & Broadcasters Association



YORBA LINDA, Calif. --

Brittany Force
Brittany Force, the first female Top Fuel world champion in 35 years, has been elected to the American Auto Racing Writers & Broadcasters Association (AARWBA) All-America Team and earned the Jerry Titus Memorial Award.

Force, who earned votes for her stellar 2017 performance that included four race wins in six final round appearances and two No. 1 qualifying positions on the way to her first world championship, is joined on the All-America Team by Josef Newgarden (Indy Car), Ricky and Jordan Taylor (IMSA), Donny Schatz (Sprint Car), Martin Truex Jr. (NASCAR), Kyle Kaiser (Indy Lights) and Christopher Bell (NASCAR Truck Series).

Force and Truex tied for the most votes to earn them both the Jerry Titus Memorial Award, the AARWBA's "Driver of the Year" award that remembers the auto racer and journalist.

"It's such an honor to be included on the All-America Team by the American Auto Racing Writers & Broadcasters Association," Force said. "This season has been incredible, taking home the 2017 championship title for our Monster Energy Team and then to finish off our year by earning the Titus Award is truly unbelievable. To be mentioned alongside so many influential names in the motorsports world is an accomplishment in itself and that is something I am very proud of. I have so much support around me and it's because of my fans, my family and my team that the 2017 season was such a huge success. I am so appreciative of this huge recognition."

Founded in 1955 AARWBA is a motorsports organization comprised of writers, broadcasters, photographers, and other media-related professionals. The organization's charter is aimed at providing not only proper recognition for members of the motorsports media, but to recognize their work as well as the work of the competitors that they follow in print, on the air, and on film.
