    If anybody works at a bank and sees a loan come through with John Force's name on it......

    3 engines, 2 FC bodies, and a dragster just aint cheap.

    From the starting line I saw our car drop a cylinder and then I heard the explosion and I figured it was going to be just like Atlanta a few years ago when we exploded a body off of the car, but when I looked over at Forces car I realized it was him and not us. It was not a good weekend for the JFR team. John had to take trip to the hospital on Fri and his daughter Brittany had a pretty scary crash today in her Monster Energy dragster and was taken to the hospital today. I think she will be released tomorrow. Here is a link.

    Good news is that Brittany is out of the hospital and resting at home with just some soreness in her upper body. A new car is being prepared for Phoenix in a couple of weeks.
     
  11. Besides a possible money issue I wonder why they still haven't come up with an idea to make those walls softer like the safer barriers.

    Brittany and her crew has had a lot of highs and lows in the past few years. In 2015 a girl driving a car lost control in the rain and came across the highway and hit her race hauler and forced them off the road. Then they win the Championship in the last race of 2017, and then she crashes her race car in the first race of 2018.

    Here is a link to a pretty interesting video of John Force giving a tour of his Indy shop.
