John Force is an American NHRA drag racer. He is a 16 time
champion and his team has 18 championships under them. John is one
of the most dominant drag racers in the sport with over 144 career
victories and he is still pushing limits at 68 years old. John is
considered the best. He is a premier example of making it happen
with no excuses.
What drives John? He says, “At the end of the day everyone has to eat.” But beyond that, he simply loves what he does. He loves driving the cars and explains it as magic to him. It is that passion that has gotten him through crashes, burns and even fatalities among fellow racers and friends.
Passion may be what keeps him going, but it is a system that keeps him alive. There is an aspect of a cowboy attitude, however John has a checklist that he lives by. He has been driving for 4 decades and at this point he pokes fun at himself saying he is a trained monkey. It’s about sticking to what you have been taught and not veering too far from those teachings.
