NORWALK, Ohio – A story about the life of 15-time Funny Car World Champion John Force on the John Force Racing Website shows roots of his determination and hard work as well as results.
While living his dream, he’s made memories for many: autographing pictures for a long line of kids; riding his pit bike up to the stands to shake hands: or pausing with fans for “The National Anthem.”
Perhaps a fabulous moment at the track comes to mind: A whoosh up the lane in a smokey burnout, the backup, a starting line hush in the crowd, the launch, the flames, the win light, the winner’s circle.
And you were there.
Even though John Force logged 134 wins in his career, the 2013 Mello Yello Drag Racing Season
may seem like a hike up Pike’s Peak in January.
For an article showing the view from where John Force sits in the Castrol GTX Ford Mustang Funny Car, click on John Force likes a challenge, then on NEWS, and read, “Force looking back to move forward.”
The next suggestion is for the very best John Force fans: Go to the John Force Racing page on Facebook.com, and write a sentence or two telling John Force why you appreciate him as a driver. To go there, click on "Thought you might like to know..."
You just might add some nitrous to his comeback.
