2014 NHRA: Brittany Force Ready For Another Trip To The Finals

2014 NHRA: Brittany Force Ready For Another Trip To The Finals

For the third time this season, Brittany Force went to the finals and just came of shy of securing her first Top Fuel win. It was during last weekend’s Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals in Denver that Brittany Force showed the fans and her fellow competitors that it’s game on when she gets behind the wheel of her 10,000 horsepower Castrol EDGE Dragster. Even though this 27-year-old driver is only in her second year competing in one NHRA’s premier categories, she’s a serious threat to the rivals she lines up against on race day.

Now, as the annual NHRA Western Swing makes it second stop at the NHRA Sonoma Nationals, Brittany Force is ready to climb back in the cockpit and do it all over again. The 2013 NHRA Rookie of the Year thrives on back-to-back races and uses the momentum to her advantage to stay focused, in the groove and pumped up. She has the force going into Sonoma and it’s been that way most of this season.

“I love going on the Western Swing, and I’m excited to be heading back to the west coast. My energy is up heading to Sonoma and I just can’t wait to hit the track,” said Brittany Force.

With her third runner-up finish of the season coming at Bandimere Speedway last weekend, Brittany Force still remains in 7th place in the NHRA Mello Yello Top Fuel Points Standings. Despite only three races left after this weekend’s NHRA Sonoma Nationals until the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship playoff fields are set, Brittany’s confident, due in part of her improving driving skills and the talent pool she has tuning her Castrol EDGE Dragster ensuring that it’s a strong and consistent performer come race day.

“We ran so well in Denver and it’s that momentum that will hopefully carry us to another trip to the final round. We’ve come so close this year and my guys are doing an awesome job on the Castrol EDGE dragster,” said Brittany Force.

Led by Todd Smith and Dean “Guido” Antonelli, they rallied the crew and dug deep when the chips were stacked against them during last weekend’s qualifying sessions at Denver. Knowing you’ve got a team like this behind you adds even more confidence to Brittany when she’s behind the wheel of her race car.

“The Castrol EDGE team has worked so hard and we’re a much stronger team than last year. Todd Smith and Dean Antonelli and the rest of my guys have been doing awesome this season,” said Brittany Force.

Armed with the valuable knowledge from these past few races and the fact this is Brittany’s second race at Sonoma Raceway, she knows the Castrol EDGE team is tough and can give any opponent in the next lane a run for the money. Even with back-to-back races, Brittany still finds time to focus on her reaction times and review her routine as a driver. She knows what needs to get done this weekend – qualify in the top half of the field, get lane choice, go rounds and get to the finals.

With Brittany solidly in 7th place in the NHRA Mello Yello Top Fuel standings with 783 points, she’s looking to move up come Sunday at Sonoma Raceway. With the direction her Castrol EDGE team is heading, the always optimistic Brittany Force could very well get her first Top Fuel win for Castrol EDGE and John Force Racing during the Western Swing.
