Force — Still In The Game

The qualities that made John Force famous — his competitive spirit and superhuman talent in the cockpit of a Funny Car — can almost be overshadowed by his larger-than-life persona. “I thought I was turning the corner; my race car was fast and then I’m not there,” Force continued. “I’m not trying to be cool or to make anybody think I’m special,” Force said. Her husband, Daniel, is crew chief for John Force’s car. “When I raced them in Funny Car, I always wanted my kids to win, but I never let them win, I wanted those wins, too,” he said. John Force has done plenty of winning himself, despite not claiming a national event Wally until Montreal in 1987. “We do it because we love it, so when we came back, we were hungry,” Force said.
