Daughter of Drag Racing legend John Force made the decision at the age of 7 that she was going to race funny cars like her dad. Courtney's sisters also grew up to become racers, Brittnay currently drives the Brandsource Top Fuel Dragster, and older sister Ashley raced, but has now retired from competitive racing. We would like to add, that her body is rockin'! She trains constantly, and it shows. When asked about other sports she participated in as a youngster she told ESPN ,. I was in dance, gymnastics, cheer and softball. In high school, I was a cheerleader, but I was also taking auto shop class, kind of like the best of both worlds. I like the girly side of everything, but I really love these race cars. My sisters were cheerleaders, too. Dad hated coming to our cheer competitions because he was afraid we would fall and break our necks.

So what's wrong with Force's sexy shots? She looks very nice, and goodness knows the NHRA could use some attention, what with sponsors dropping out left and right. Still, if it were up to us to make drag racing exciting, we might go a different route--bring back the wheelstanders and the Swamp Rats.
