16 time Funny Car champion John Force will have a unique Father’s Day this year as he not only will get to spend it with two of his daughters but he will be competing against both Courtney and Brittany Force as the NHRA races at Bristol Drag Way this weekend.

John Force will be competing in his PEAK Chevrolet, Courtney is in her Advanced Auto Parts Chevy Camaro while Brittany will be in her Monster Energy top fuel dragster. Force went on to say:
