Ashley Force Makes NHRA History as First Female Funny Car Winner

Ashley Force grew up watching her dad become the greatest NHRA Funny Car driver in history, but little did she know that one day he would be standing in her way of making motorsports history. Yet that was the case on April 27, 2008 when father and daughter found themselves against each other in the finals of the NHRA Summit Southern Nationals at Atlanta Dragway. John was competing in his 500th series event and a win would be his 1,000-round victory. Ashley was trying to become the first female in NHRA history to win a Funny Car event.
