Brittany Force

Brittany got her drag racing start at Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School. After completing the licensing process, Brittany raced in Super Comp for three seasons and in the Top Alcohol Dragster division for three more.

When it came time to turn pro, Brittany opted for a ride in a Top Fuel dragster, the first in John Force Racing’s history. In her debut season, Brittany won the 2013 Auto Club’s Road to the Future Award as the NHRA Rookie of the Year. Brittany won her first NHRA national event in 2016 at the Gatornationals in Gainesville, Florida.

Brittany Force’s drag racing career is highlighted by her 2017 NHRA season when she made history by becoming the first woman in 35 years, and only the second ever, to win a Top Fuel World Championship.

Brittany was only sixth in points with one win in two final round appearances entering the 2017 Countdown to the Championship, but was unstoppable thereafter.

Brittany piloted her 11,000-horsepower dragster to four final rounds while winning three of the six races. She sealed the deal with a dominating performance in the season-ending Auto Club Finals at Pomona, California. She qualified No. 1, set track and event records and became just the 12th pro driver to end a championship season with a wire-to-wire victory in the final event.

Coming off her championship season, Brittany was faced with adversity when she opened 2018 with a devasting crash at the Winternationals at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, the same track where she had won the world championship just two months prior. Brittany finished 2018 fifth in the points standings with a win in Houston and two No. 1 qualifying positions.

In 2019, teamed up with stand-out veteran crew chief David Grubnic, Brittany had two wins, including a bucket list victory at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway during the Countdown to the Championship and her second consecutive victory at the NHRA Spring Nationals in Houston.

In 2021, Brittany put together an impressive streak of eight consecutive No. 1 qualifying positions for a career best total of 12 in a single season. She also had a historic win when she doubled-up win with her father, 16-time world champion John Force at Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, Kansas. It was the first time in NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series history a father and child duo shared the winner’s circle, and the fifth time John Force Racing has had a Funny Car / Top Fuel double-up.

In 2022, Force captured her second Top Fuel championship after capturing 6 event wins. The championship was the 22nd for John Force Racing as a team.

Narciso has been pit crewing since 2011. His favorite part about racing is the relationship between man/woman and machine. The car is never bias; it doesn’t care if you’re old or young, tall or short, black or white, boy or girl. It’s just you, your car and the race track.
