NORWALK, Ohio -- John Force Racing news shook awake off season Fuel junkies January 10 in a triple treat to rev excitement for the 2013 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
First, as suspected, Brittany Force announced 2013 as her NHRA rookie season racing the Castrol Edge Top Fuel dragster in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
Last season Brittany’s younger sister, Funny Car phenom Courtney Force, won 2012 NHRA Rookie of the Year honors at Auto Club of Southern California.
Since the new season shatters the winter silence Feb. 14-17, 2013 at the O’Reilly Winternationals at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, Calif., does that make Brittany a Top Fuel Valentine?
Meanwhile Mike Neff climbs out of the Castrol GTX Ford Mustang Funny Car cockpit to choreograph in 2013 a 16th World Championship season as crew chief for John Force with the same crew.
Last year Mike Neff finished third in points and at the same time served as crew chief on his own ride.
Crew Chief Dean “Guido” Antonelli slides over from John Force’s Funny Car to Brittany Force’s Top Fuel dragster, which boasts a Ford BOSS 500 nitro motor!
Another tidbit in the JFR news releases is that Mike Neff says it’s an honor to serve as crew chief for John Force, who is funny, intense, and “the most exciting guy out there.”
As usual, John Force Racing provides a ton of exciting details on the Website at http://www.johnforceracing.com/.
