Living legend John Force is the Provisional No. 1 Funny Car qualifier at the 48th annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway in Gainesville, Florida. The 16-time World Champion made a 3.832 at 333.25 mph pass in his PEAK Chevy Camaro during the second qualifying session.
“It feels good,” he said. “The old hot rod went down the race track well. We made a lot of changes recently. Robert Hight and I decided to switch teams. It all just made sense. My heart felt good and I knew it was good, because I started hearing the music and when you lose the music, you’re dead and you don’t even know it.
“You gotta find the music. That’s the hardest thing to do and that makes everything right.”
Hight is the second qualifier following a 3.844 at 331.77 mph pass.
Matt Hagan – who won the past two races to begin the season – is the third qualifier. He went 3.854 at 328.70 mph in his Dodge Charger.
