Sixteen-time NHRA Funny Car champion John Force notched up yet another bullet in his resume to become one of the greatest drag racers in history with his 140th class win Sunday in Norwalk, Ohio. Oddly enough, it was the legend's first-ever win at the famed track. After racing seven of the last eight weeks, the NHRA is taking a break before the Western Swing kicks off near Denver, Colo.

On the NASCAR side of things, Brian Vickers lead the charge for the PEAK drivers with a runner-up finish Sunday at Daytona. The race was rain-shortened after being delayed to Sunday due to inclement weather Saturday night. Vickers' Michael Waltrip Racing teammate, Clint Bowyer, wrapped up a ninth-place finish despite suffering damage in the second of two "Big Ones" during the event, while Danica Patrick racked up another top-ten at Daytona with an eight-place effort. NASCAR heads to New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend where Vickers is the defending race champion.

Finally, Late Model Series points leader Don O'Neal also took home a runner-up finish Saturday night at 210 Speedway in Sitka, Ky. The Indiana native maintains a 10-point lead over Jimmy Owens.
