In 1978, a little-known racer by the name of John Force qualified for his first NHRA national event – the World Finals in Ponoma, Calif. Thirty-seven years later, Force is the winningest driver in NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series history with 143 victories and 16 championships, including 10 consecutive titles from 1993-2002.
This season, Force has already ready won two Funny Car events. In April, he won the Summit.com Nationals at the Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, moving up seven positions in the standings to sixth. Two months later at New England Dragway and Motorsports Park, he placed first in the NHRA New England Nationals.
At September’s AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Ill., Force’s Funny Car was emblazoned with the logo of a new primary sponsor – Lucas Oil Slick Mist.
NHRA fans can own the latest Action Racing Collectibles die-cast of their favorite drag racer by ordering Force’s Lucas Oil Slick Mist Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car.
