JOHN FORCE CAPTURES HISTORIC 150th WIN AT SEATTLE

The chase for his latest milestone is over for John Force.

The legendary 16-time world champion won his 150th career national event when he took home the title at the Magic Dry Organic Absorbent NHRA Northwest Nationals Sunday in Seattle.

PROCK TAG-TEAMS WITH BOSS FORCE, SPOILER HARTFORD TO STAND IN SEATTLE SPOTLIGHT

Austin Prock, the fresh face of the NHRA’s Top Fuel class, has been anything but timid since he burst on the scene this February, gaining a ride in a dragster almost literally on the eve of the season-opener but asserting himself right out of the gate.

He has had fun, pedaling the throttle to defeat 2017 champion Brittany Force (on whose crew he worked last year) in his first elimination round, challenging fellow rookie and buddy Jordan Vandergriff to a T-shirt sales contest, and throwing class dominator and reigning champion Steve Torrence off-guard by telling him, “I’m coming for you” – in his first-ever day of qualifying.

MATT HARTFORD PLAYS SPOILER, WINS SEATTLE

Pro Stock driver Matt Hartford played the spoiler Sunday at the Magic Dry Organic Absorbent NHRA Northwest Nationals Sunday in Seattle.

And, he was all right with that fact.

FORCE GETS WIN NO. 150, PROCK SECURES FIRST VICTORY AND HARTFORD GRABS WIN AT NHRA NORTHWEST NATIONALS

John Force powered to his 150th Funny Car win on Sunday, rolling to the milestone victory at the 32nd annual Magic Dry Absorbent NHRA Northwest Nationals.

While Force earned his 150th career win, John Force Racing teammate and Top Fuel rookie Austin Prock picked up his first career win as part of a historic day for JFR. Matt Hartford also won in Pro Stock at the 16th of 24 races during the 2019 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season. It was the final of three races on the famed NHRA Western Swing.

TASCA DETONATES FUNNY CAR BODY

 

Bob Tasca III’s Motorcraft /Quick Lane Ford Mustang team had a mad thrash before the final qualifying session Saturday, courtesy of a sizeable engine blast toward the end of his third overall run. Tasca was unhurt, but his carbon-fiber body didn’t fare as well. It was destroyed as it exploded and piled up behind the cockpit at grotesque angles.

But Tasca took it in stride and even used a little humor immediately afterward.

“We want to put on a show for these fans, give them a little excitement,” Tasca teased.
