NHRA Funny car driver Courtney Force in the Advanced Auto Parts Chevrolet John Force Racing machine has shown in 2018 that she is the one to beat in the Mellow Yellow champion having taken her fourth win of the season last weekend in Virginia.
Force is showing young girls and women who want a career in motorsport that they can succeed in the sport with hard work and persistence.
Motorsport is one of the a few sports where men and women can compete on a even footing and although there are currently no full-time female drivers in Formula One, the NHRA with Courtney and Brittany Force are extremely successful. Courtney is currently leading the way in the NHRA Funny Car standings with four wins from ten races.
Force is a fantastic ambassador for the NHRA in how she promotes the series and she heads to the next round of the championship in Thunder Valley this weekend with a 173 point lead over second placed Jack Beckman.
