YORBA LINDA, CA (August 19, 2008) --- For the first time in 2008 Brittany and Courtney Force will enter an event together, the 54th annual Mac Tools US Nationals in Indianapolis, in the Top Alcohol Dragster class. The youngest daughters of 14-time champion John Force have competed together for two seasons in Super Comp before moving up to Top Alcohol Dragster this year.
Prior to the Mac Tools US Nationals Brittany and Courtney had shared driving duties as each managed a full-time college schedule.
“Having both Brittany and Courtney race at the Mac Tools US Nationals just seemed like the right thing to do. This season has been about teaching my girls how to handle the Top Alcohol Dragster. They have been alternating races but the US Nationals is the biggest race of the season and how do you decide which daughter gets to race at Indy. The simplest thing was to let them both race so that is what we decided to do. I am excited we’ll all be racing together that weekend,” said the proud father.
Courtney opened the season qualifying for the Winternationals in Pomona and Brittany made her 2008 debut at the Summitracing.com Nationals in Las Vegas. Brittany Force won her first round of eliminations at the Schuck’s Auto Parts Supply Nationals in Seattle. Courtney Force is still looking for her first TAD round win.
Brittany and Courtney will be racing Jerry Darien tuned TADs backed by long-time JFR sponsor BrandSource at the Mac Tools US Nationals.
