2014 NHRA: Force Thrills Fans At Hardcore Horsepower Shootout

John Force spent the weekend north of the border at St. Thomas Raceway Park as Grand Marshal of the Hardcore Horsepower Shootout. For the 16-time NHRA Funny Car champion it was two days of telling stories, watching racing and reconnecting with Canadian fans. The event opened with a very special event following the national anthem as 5 year old Weslee from Wishes for Weslee met John Force and “raced” down the track in his own Mustang.

“This was an awesome weekend. The fans up here have been great. Getting to meet Weslee was really special. We have done two autograph sessions that both lasted over two hours and I have been having a great time. The Williams family has put on a great show and I am honored to be the Grand Marshal,” said Force.

Over the course of two days Force’s JFR Travelin’ Road Show was the hit of the event. The Road Show featured some of Force’s most famous Funny Cars and showed fans racing highlights as well as special videos produced by John Force Entertainment. Force was thrilled with the professional racing as well as the Jr. Dragster action on track at St. Thomas Motorsports Park.

“I loved seeing the Jr. Dragsters. I can’t wait to get back to California and get Autumn and Robert (Hight) out to the track in her Jr. Dragster. You see these kids out here having so much fun and that is the future of drag racing,” said Force, an excited grandfather.

“I also loved seeing the guys from England with the Living the Dream car, Rick ‘Hollywood’ Kopp’s AA Funny Car and the Ant Hill Mob Funny Car plus all the Pro Mods and fuel bikes. Their passion for racing is right up there with mine and their hot rods were awesome. I watched them every time they pulled up. They put on a great show for the fans and that is what this event was all about; the fans. Even though we had some rain on Sunday I was still signing autographs and having fun,” said Force.
