Tough Weekend For The Force Family
It was a rough weekend for the Force family. Both reigning Top-Fuel world champion Brittany Force and her legend Funny Car driver dad, John Force, walked away from insane crashes. Brittany was up against Terry Haddock in the opening round of the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals when she lost traction and crossed into the other lane and hit the wall. She drifted back into her lane and rolled several times before coming to a stop. She was taken to a local hospital for her injuries.
John Force also had a rough start to the 2018 season when his car exploded during qualifying at Pomona. He was lucky enough to walk away but was also taken to the hospital. Hopefully, they have a quick recovery and the rest of the season goes better for both of them.
