John Force says putting on his fire suit has always made him feel “like Superman.” Having him drive with Team PEAK makes us feel the same way.

As the face of NHRA Funny Car racing—and it’s most prolific winner—John is the perfect fit for Team PEAK. After three decades of racing and 16 NHRA driving championships, he still lives for that 4-second, 320-mph rush.

John’s dominant success did not come easily. At the beginning of his career, he had no license, no sponsor, and—truth be told—no clue. In his own words, he would do “anything to get us to the next race.” But his continued persistency and self-sacrifice has definitely paid off, as evidenced by his induction into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in Talladega, Alabama on the first ballot.

With more than 147 wins to date, John is arguably the greatest champion in all of motor racing. He is a husband, a father, an American NHRA drag racer, a 16-time Funny Car champion driver, an 18-time champion car owner, and a 2008 inductee into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in Detroit, MI.

John owns and drives for John Force Racing, which operates out of Yorba Linda, CA. Find out more about John at

Over 30 Years in Motorsports

It’s in our blood.

At PEAK®, we’re not afraid to mix it up with the big boys. This is why we’ve been actively involved in motorsports for over 30 years. We identify with the straight shooters like John Force and Clint Bowyer, just two of the truly great racers who’ve been part of the PEAK family throughout the years.

Today, PEAK still aims to shock the motorsports establishment partly as a way to showcase the excellence and competitive quality of our family of brands, but mostly, because it’s so much fun. Look for our drivers and teams to challenge the heavy hitters in NASCAR, NHRA, and Dirt Late Model racing!
