John Force was finally able to end his 7 year drought by winning the 8th Annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals.  Prior to 2014 race, Summit Motorsports Park was the only track he had not tamed.  His first attempt came in 2010, but Tim Wilkerson shut the door on his opportunity by claiming the event win.  During his top end interview, John gave his Wally to Bill Jr.  Watch the video clip
