John Force Wins #144 in the PEAK Antifreeze & Coolant Realtree Top Fuel FC
Congratulations to John Force, the winningest driver in NHRA history, as he continues to add to his legendary body of work winning for the 7th time in Denver in ten final round appearances. This was Force’s unprecedented 144th time in the winners circle. This is the 29th season Force has won at least one Funny Car national event, an accomplishment unparalleled in all of motorsports. The 16-time Funny Car champion had to defeat his youngest daughter Courtney in the final round to get the win.
Courtney Force qualified in the number one position, advanced to her 16th final round in Funny Car and moved up to the number two position in the NHRA Mello Yello point standings this weekend at Bandimere Speedway. She dismissed Jim Campbell, Tommy Johnson Jr. and Robert Hight before losing a blower belt and ultimately losing one of the closest side-by-side three-second races all weekend to her dad John.
