    I've followed Force since the late '70s during the Brute Force days when he drove the Leo's Stereos car, then the Wendy's car and he was on fire on just about every run and have always enjoyed his out of breath top end off the cuff interviews, but this one seems to indicate that he might want to consider hanging up his firesuit and focus on running the team rather than driving.

    I stumbled across this last night. It appears to be a YouTube reality show about Force and his racing family with several episodes. It was just released last Friday which was confusing at first since that was the first day of the 2018 season but I later discovered that the series is for the 2017 season.

    both John and his daughter ended up going to the hospital this past weekend after separate incidents on the track. They were evaluated and released a few hours after admittance.

    Perfect examples of the adage: Sometimes stuff just breaks. Since their team, above all others, has everything about drag-racing down to a science.

    The cancellation of The Speed Channel and the popularity-rise of Top Gear most likely curbed ideas for reality-shows based on flamboyant racing-teams & families... thinking specifically about A.J. Foyt and John Force. The Andretti's too. Maybe the Andersons, of Grave Digger fame.

    I figured there might be a problem with sponser-logo splashed everywhere through-out the show.

    Bobby Bennett at Competition Plus does a nice series called the Legends. Yesterday he released this one where Force talks about coming up from nothing to where he is today.

    Wow. Force was just rushed to the hospital not many minutes ago, after a crash at the Arizona Nationals in which his engine blew and he crossed the center-line into Jonnie Lindberg's car... and both rides' parachutes got tangled.

    Looks like both drivers are okay, I think.

    The 2018 season hasn't been kind to him so far. 2 trips to the hospital in 2 races. His daughter went on to win the event in the funny car category.

    Some pretty amazing photos of the crash last weekend can be seen here. http://markjrebilas.com/blog/john-fo...-nhra-phoenix/
    In an interview, Force said he was knocked out at the initial explosion and didn't come around until after the car finally stopped so he missed experiencing the wild ride.
