Yesterday at Pomona ,John Force in NHRA funny car drag racing class,proved he is still the king.After Matt Hagan lost a devastating first round match up with Bob Tasca,in which Hagan would had been crowned champ if had won,Force was in position to win his 15th championship.Force delivered,in his usual dramatic style, by winning not only the years driver crown but the Pomona event itself.And crowd went wild! And they did.And well deserved for Force and his racing team.As the ESPN announcers.Paul Page and Mike Dunn said it right,the John Force career is worthy of a movie consideration.
John Force is a great American story,who faced a lot of adversity, including a possible career ending accident,came back,
and always remained positive and took down championship number 15.But what I like,and most fans like about Force,as with most drivers, how up front and honest he is.It sometimes gets him in trouble but that's what we like about him.
Congratulations to Force,Austin Coil and Mike Neff.Way to go! A Southern California,Yorba Linda team.
Also congratulations to Greg Andersen(PS),LE Tonglet(PSM)(Rookie) and Larry Dixon(TF) and other class championship winners.
What about returning nitro racing to 1/4 mile racing? Restricted? Unrestricted? You're thoughts.
