JOHN FORCE WON THE SUMMITRACING.COM NHRA NATIONALS FOR HIS RECORD-EXTENDING 142ND VICTORY
LAS VEGAS (April 12, 2015) — John Force won the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals on Sunday for his record-extending 142nd victory, beating teammate Robert Hight in the Funny Car final.
The 65-year-old Force had a 4.148-second pass at 312.35 mph in his Chevrolet Camaro for his fifth victory at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Hight finished in 4.154 at 306.05.
"Robert is my best team," Force said. "He's hot on that Christmas tree so I really got to get after him. The win was good but all that we've been through, with financial change, my sponsors promised to keep me competitive, win championships and I could build safety. We were lucky today and I'll take lucky any day because it buys us some time to learn." Read Full Article
