John Force Racing Done With 2020 NHRA Season Due to Coronavirus
You won’t see John Force or his team for the rest of the 2020 NHRA season. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Force said in a statement that the challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic made it impossible to meet the commitments required by his sponsors.
“After four months of postponement and ever-changing scenarios, NHRA went forward with a revised Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule that restarted with two-consecutive races at the storied Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis in Indiana. Sixteen-time Funny Car world champion and NHRA legend John Force sidelined his four-car team for the restart of the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season. The driver of the PEAK BlueDEF Chevrolet Camaro SS announced today that John Force Racing will remain parked for the 2020 season in order to come back at championship caliber. “
While the team competed in the first two rounds of the NHRA season in February, they did not return when racing restarted at Indianapolis in the beginning of July. But don’t worry, Force and the team will be back next year.
“What I’m saying is that I’m going to prepare to come back next year stronger than ever.”
