(AP) LAS VEGAS - LAS VEGAS (AP) — Erica Enders-Stevens won the $50,000 K&N Horsepower Challenge for the second consecutive year Saturday during the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals.

Enders-Stevens, the defending Pro Stock season champion, had a 6.650-second pass at 208.01 mph in her Chevy Camaro to beat Vincent Nobile in the eight-car Pro Stock specialty event.

"It was very exciting," Enders-Stevens said. "We're so appreciative of K&N and Toyota for the support they give our class of Pro Stock. It's huge for us. My guys did a really great job. They kept their heads together in the pit and that's what it's all about — getting it done when you need to."

J.R. Todd (Top Fuel), Matt Hagan (Funny Car) and Jason Line (Pro Stock) all carried their Friday bests into Saturday to secure the No. 1 qualifying positions.
