John Force Career
Force piloted the Night Stalker Mustang, a Jack Chrisman-built funny car, in 1971. At the start of his career, he also competed in a number of other races, driving a Corvette, a Monza, and an Oldsmobile Cutlass. From the 1980s until the end of the 1993 season, he continued to drive the Cutlass. He then spent a considerable amount of time switching to Ford before going back to Chevrolet.
Between 1987 and 1996, Force was a very successful driver, taking home the victory in 67 of the 203 NHRA races that were held during that time. His dominance over the competition allowed him to win 10 NHRA championship races from 1993 to 2002, including six in a row from 1997 to 2002, as his success persisted throughout the mid- and late 1990s.
He also began assembling a racing squad at this time. Tony Pedregon, Cruz Pedregon’s younger brother, drove his second vehicle, while Gary Densham, a fellow racer and friend, drove a third car. For the first time since 1992, Force failed to claim a championship in 2003. But everything worked out since Pedregon, a teammate, won his first world championship. When Force won his twelfth world championship in 2004, he rose to the top once more.
