John Force said to the Boston Herald this week that Don Schumacher is out to ruin him. However, in the final round, it was the legend, who took out a DSR driver.

“I almost felt like [Don] Schumacher was feeling sorry for me,” Force said. “Don’t feel sorry for me. I’m the guy with all the championships.”

Force, the Peak Anti-Freeze driver, won the NHRA New England Nationals for the first time. He defeated Tommy Johnson Jr. in his Make-A-Wish Funny Car.

Force went 4.16 to Johnson Jr.’s 4.19. This is Force’s second win this season after previously winning in Las Vegas.

“That was exciting to get that win,” Force added. “It’s bitchin’. I lost in the inaugural against my daughter in the final.”

This is Force’s a 143rd career win. In the winner’s circle, Don Schumacher came over and gave Force a hug.

This was the second final round for the legend in the past three events. Last weekend at the Toyota NHRA Summernationals at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, Force was eliminated in the first round to Matt Hagan, who would go on to win the event.

At the NHRA Kansas Nationals, Force lost to DSR Infinite Hero driver Jack Beckman.

“I’m going to get to 150 someday,” Force stated. “It ain’t going to be pretty because I ain’t no young chicken.”
