Austin Prock

DOB: 08/21/1995

Hometown: Danville, IN

Austin Prock, son of championship tuner Jimmy Prock, made his NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series debut at the 2019 NHRA Winternationals at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona driving the Montana Brand / Rocky Mountain Twist Top Fuel dragster for John Force Racing tuned by crew chiefs Jon Schaffer and Ronnie Thompson.

Prock started his career in drag racing as a member of Courtney Force’s Advance Auto Parts Chevy Camaro SS Funny Car team and then moved to working on super-chargers for world champion Brittany Force. Throughout his time with John Force Racing, Prock has been working his way to being the next driver for the legendary team.

As the newest addition to John Force Racing’s Next Generation initiative, Prock was licensed in a Super Comp dragster through Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School, the same drag racing school from which world champions Robert Hight and Brittany Force as well as Courtney Force, Eric Medlen and even Force family matriarch Laurie Force earned their licenses. He was licensed in an Alcohol dragster in Indianapolis with Anthony Dicero and holds a Top Fuel dragster as well as nitro Funny Car license.

Prock first climbed into a race car at age 10. He collected his first race win before he was 12 years old and in 2012 he was named the National Pavement Midget Rookie of the Year. A year later he was awarded the Bob Tattersall Hard Charger of the Year. In 2014, his first year racing a complete schedule, Prock was the STARS National Pavement Midget Champion after winning four races. Following his championship year, Prock entered into the world of Dirt Sprint Cars and picked up a win in his seventh start.  Prock finished his circle track career having entered 139 races with 27 wins and 84 top five finishes.

While he worked his way up racing circle track, Prock’s roots and end goal were always in drag racing. Prock is the grandson of former NHRA driver Tom Prock and the son of world champion tuner Jimmy Prock who currently crew chiefs the Auto Club of Southern California Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car for John Force Racing’s two-time world champion Robert Hight.
