John Force Wins 16th NHRA Championship, Defeats Daughter in Final [Video]
The 64-year-old drove his Castrol GTX Ford Mustang to a 4.062 seconds quarter mile at 310.63 miles per hour in the final round, while Courtney Force crossed the line inches away with 4.085 seconds and 319.22 miles per hour.
"This is probably the most stress I've ever had," John Force said. "I just gave the worst top end interview I ever did (because) I couldn't believe that we got here. Racing my daughter in the final with the championship on the line. She wanted to win but, at the end of the day, the fans won."
By winning Sunday’s race, his third straight win of the season, John Force secured his 16th NHRA Funny Car championship, a record in the series. The win also marks Force’s 10th title with Ford, 75th victory in a Mustang and 138th career win.
