John Force (born May 4, 1949 (65 years ago) in Bell Gardens, California) is an NHRA drag racer and 14 - time Funny Car champion. He is one of the most dominant drag racers in the sport with 126 career victories. He graduated from Bell Gardens High School and briefly attended Cerritos Junior College to play football.

2008

2008 was not a very good season for Force, finishing out of the top five for the first time since early in his career. However, after the death of driver Scott Kalitta, he was instrumental in the development of some of the safety precautions that were implemented throughout the rest of the season, and also, along with retired Funny Car, and Top Fuel driver Kenny Bernstein, and six time Top Fuel Champion Tony Schumacher, with backing from NHRA's Track Safety Committee, assisted in developing a sensor that monitors the engines of Top Fuel dragsters, and Funny Cars. Should the engine backfire at any time during a race, the fuel pump is automatically shut down, and the parachutes are deployed. The idea was to either minimize, or eliminate the circumstances that led to Kalitta's death. This safety device became mandatory, and was put into place at the start of the 2009 (5 years ago) season. Also made an optional setting for the Funny Car division, was a brake handle that, instead of needing to be pulled back, toward the driver, was set up to be pushed away from the driver. This came about due to the fact that when the 2008 (6 years ago) season began, Force's right arm was still in a cast, due to broken fingers, and he needed a different way of utilizing the brakes on the car, rather than the traditional handbrake that needed to be brought back toward the driver, also, in the 2007 (7 years ago) accident in Texas, Force had lost some grip in his right hand, and had some problems putting enough pressure on the handbrake to unlock it from position to apply the brakes. This led to the development of the forward application handbrake, which has given several drivers in the Funny Car class quicker access to the brakes. Though Force only finished seventh in the points in 2008 (6 years ago), he became a visionary within the NHRA for innovations in driver safety.
