Yep, that’s him.
We don’t know how good of a driver John Force actually is. You see, his daughter, Ashley, stepped into a top fuel funny car and started winning right away. The cars are set up to run by the crew chief, who puts in certain formulas in the car’s computer. The driver has an on/off switch for the accelerator. So, go, then stop.
Force gets that formula from previous runs of his other cars, whose data goes into Big John’s and his daughter’s. So, he’s called a great driver, but nobody really knows if he is.
I wish they would bring back the driver-controlled throttle. Of course, Force will fight that for all its worth, along with the other top fuel king, Don Schumacher.
Well, all time Funny Car...
I wish they would bring back the driver-controlled throttle.
So the drivers don't really "peddle the throttle" when the tires blow off? Who knew?
