The stars of the drag race circuit may be 6,000-horsepower nitro-burning drags cars, but the 300-miles-per-hour superstar of the sport is funny car racer John Force. John's popularity is about more than his career record. His honest and consistently outrageous demeanor have endeared him to the fans, made him a favorite with Jay Leno and FOX's "The Best Damn Sports Show," and has led him to be dubbed the "best interview in sports today." Force has been the face (and mouth) of drag racing for the past decade, and he shows no signs of slowing down, on or off the track. This revised and updated photo biography by veteran race reporter Erik Arneson covers the rags-to-riches story of Force's rise from a penniless racer to a multi-team effort that includes his high-profile daughter Ashley (the 2004 Driver of the Year and Rookie of the Year). Force's is the story of a career built on sheer will and determination--the tale of a racer who, with unstoppable drive, guts, and savvy, overcame lousy equipment and little backing to become the best.
