Clint Bowyer raced almost before he walked, competing in 50cc class motorcycle races by the age of five. He collected more than 200 wins and several championships and eventually graduated to four wheels, winning titles at tracks like Thunderhill, Lakeside and I-70 Speedways in and around Kansas. Some 30 years later, Bowyer competes in the premiere series in racing, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
He's also a champion team owner with PEAK drivers Don O’Neal and Darrell Lanigan mixing it up with best dirt late model racers in the world. O’Neal took home his first series championship in 2014 and also the first for Bowyer as a team owner.
Not bad for a 37-year-old from Emporia, Kan., who once worked in the paint and body shop at a car dealership in his hometown, which he now owns. When he’s not selling cars in his hometown, where he often returns to hunt, he is helping the community through the Emporia Community Foundation and the “79 Fund” which Bowyer started in 2007 as a way to help the children of Emporia.

Michael Waltrip, known as the "King of all NASCAR Media," can be found on bookshelves, the broadcast booth, on Showtime, and still on track at the super speedways. It's amazing he has time to get behind the wheel, but Waltrip is still one of only eight drivers to celebrate multiple victories at the Daytona 500.

John Force says putting on his fire suit has always made him feel “like Superman.” Having him drive with Team PEAK makes us feel the same way.
As the face of NHRA Funny Car racing—and it’s most prolific winner—John is the perfect fit for Team PEAK. After three decades of racing and 16 NHRA driving championships, he still lives for that 4-second, 320-mph rush.
John’s dominant success did not come easily. At the beginning of his career, he had no license, no sponsor, and—truth be told—no clue. In his own words, he would do “anything to get us to the next race.” But his continued persistency and self-sacrifice has definitely paid off, as evidenced by his induction into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in Talladega, Alabama on the first ballot.
With more than 147 wins to date, John is arguably the greatest champion in all of motor racing. He is a husband, a father, an American NHRA drag racer, a 16-time Funny Car champion driver, an 18-time champion car owner, and a 2008 inductee into the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America in Detroit, MI.
John owns and drives for John Force Racing, which operates out of Yorba Linda, CA. Find out more about John at www.johnforceracing.com.

Courtney Force, the youngest daughter of drag racing icon John Force, wasted no time showing off her competitive skills at the wheel of the Advance Auto Parts Chevrolet Camaro. She won her first professional racing round; something that her dad, her sister Ashley, and her brother-in-law Robert Hight never did.
Courtney knew that she wanted to become a race car driver at the age of 5. After graduating from Cal State Fullerton, she followed in Ashley’s footsteps to become a racer. It has always been her dream to race her father, whom she defeated during her rookie season.

Brittany Force, driver of the Monster Energy Top Fuel dragster, is the second youngest daughter of racing icon, John Force. In 2013, she was awarded the Automobile Club of Southern California Road to the Future Award, recognizing her as the 2013 NHRA Rookie of the Year. She was the fifth team driver of John Force Racing to receive this prestigious award. In 2016, Brittany broke through for her win in Top Fuel at the Gatornationals, then went on to win two more events later in the season in Charlotte, NC and Brainerd, MN.
Brittany earned her teaching credentials, having graduated from Cal State Fullerton and having studied at New York’s Hunter College. Still seeking her first national victory, Brittany is simultaneously passionate about racing and conscious of keeping her options open. Whatever happens, she will always have teaching to fall back on.

Robert Hight, driver of the 320 mile-an-hour Auto Club of Southern California Chevrolet Camaro Funny Car, has taken his car to more final rounds (58), won more races (37), and started from the Number 1 qualifying position more often the last decade than any other professional driver. He is widely considered the gold standard by which other pro drivers are measured.
In 1999, Hight married Adria, John Force’s eldest daughter and current CFO of John Force Racing. Together they have raised a beautiful daughter, Autumn Danielle, who today is her dad’s biggest fan. Robert is not only a race car driver, he is also the President of John Force Racing, Inc.

Tony is the son of drag racer Bob Fuller and brother of former Top Fuel driver “Hot Rod” Fuller. Licensed in 6 different classes of drag racing (Super Comp, Super Gas, Super Street, Top Comp, Super Eliminator, and Advanced E.T.), Tony made his first pass down the quarter mile at the mere age of 14. His father wanted to see if he had it in him, says Tony. Now with a number of race wins and a world championship under his belt, it seems his dad was on the right track.
Tony’s grandfather Albert took Tony’s father racing when he was 15 so it was only natural Bob would start his sons early. When Tony and Rod started racing their father set the priorities. School first and racing second was always what he preached growing up.
Tony Fuller is a graduate of the University of Central Florida, receiving his degree in business marketing while racing on weekends. Follow Tony on twitter @TonyFuller515 for up to date information throughout the racing season.Connect With:

When it comes to racing videos, the question is: Do they feel real?
Actually, yeah. They do. iRacing.com works closely with major auto manufacturers and race car constructors to gather exact masses and dimensions for car components, from data both collected through 3D laser scanning or even physically disassembling cars to weigh and measure parts of the chassis, suspension and driveline. Basically, it feels real because mathematically it is. Good thing they know their numbers!
And even the tracks themselves are accurate. iRacing.com uses laser scanning to replicate the precise physical features of each track’s racing surface – the camber, cracks, curbs, undulations and patches. They also use hyper-accurate sight pictures and mapping software to allow racers to hone their skills and improve real-world performance.
