JFR Sweeps Top Fuel at the Gator Nats
John Force Racing made team history in Gainesville, Florida this weekend winning their first Top Fuel national event and also winning both Top Fuel and Funny Car at the same event with Brittany Force and Robert Hight victorious at the 47th annual NHRA Gatornationals.
Brittany racing in her eighth final round defeated Terry McMillen in Top Fuel while Robert took out Ron Capps to secure his third Gatornationals career win. The wins secured berths for Brittany Force and Robert Hight in the Traxxas Shootout later this year in Indianapolis. The wins for Force and Hight move them to the top of the point standings in Top Fuel and Funny Car heading into the Las Vegas event in two weeks.
John Force and Courtney Force advance to the second round where they were defeated by Jack Beckman and Chad Head respectively. John continues to maintain the third spot while Courtney moves to fifth in the Funny Car point standings.
Then NHRA teams take Easter weekend off but will resume in Las Vegas April 1-3.
