Force reignites career by winning 50th NHRA Winternationals
National Hot Rod Assn. funny car driver John Force won the 50th Winternationals at
Auto Club Raceway at Pomona on Sunday. Force, who has won five NHRA Winternationals
races, came up the winner for the first time in almost two years.
His last win came against Tim Wilkerson at Heartland Park Topeka in Kansas in 2008. He did not win a race in 2009.
His wife, Laurie, gave Force some words
of encouragement before the Winternationals. The 60-year-old Force said
he had renewed motivation.
