Old NHRA News

I know this is old news but I can't resist writing that Ashley Force beat her father, 14 time Funny Car Champion John Force.
"Being the first woman to beat dad?  I think it's the funniest thing I've ever heard," Ashley Force said.  "He's got all these daughters and he's been racing all these years and no woman has ever beaten him before."
John Force, who is not one to be very happy when it comes to losing, actually took the defeat at the hands of his daughter as something that was bound to happen sooner or later. "I was so proud of Ashley.  She beat two world champions (Force and Pedregon) and got to the semifinals.  Wee gonna fix my 'ol heap now and see if we can't get back in the hunt for the championship," John said.
The NHRA racers will be in Madison, Illinois this weekend for the Oeilly Midwest Nationals.
