John Force at Firebird

Ashley Force Without a doubt, John Force Racing is the team I’m routing for on Sundays. 3 of the 4 Force teams are in the Top 10 with Ashley Force at #1!

Ashley made history Sunday at the NHRA Funny Car race in Las Vegas, Nev when she drove her Castrol GTX Mustang to the final round and jumped up four spots in the standings to #1. She’s the first woman to ever lead the Funny Car standings after an event.

It was Ashley Force’s second appearance in an event final in as many weeks and the third appearance in her last six starts. She remains the only female driver ever to reach a Funny Car final.

I hope this made John Force feel a little better after failing to qualify for the Vegas race. I wonder if John’s thinking of gambling instead of racing. He ended his streak of qualifying at 393 in Vegas. That mark will never be broken. John, you’re still my man!

In case you didn’t know, Ashely’s ROLLING!
