Title: Father and Daughter Showdown in Charlotte
In NASCAR news, Clint Bowyer in the PEAK #15 car had a great start to the MyAfibStory 400 at the Chicagoland Speedway this past weekend. Unfortunately it ended early when Clint made contact with the turn 1 wall, which resulted in his tire exploding. After that, the PEAK #15 car returned to the garage where it stayed the remainder of the race.
John Force had to run the 2012 NHRA Auto Club Rookie of the Year and daughter, Courtney Force. This is the fifth time this father-daughter team has raced each other this year and the first time they’ve met in round one this season. John got to the stripe ahead of Courtney. John ran a stout 4.058 second pass at 315.49 mph to Courtney’s strong 4.070 second run at 314.97 mph.
