His family has remained by his side. Adria, Ashley, and Courtney have also flown into Virginia to be by his side.

Due to Force’s hospitalization, Brittany Force will not compete this weekend.

“With the unanimous support of her family, team, and sponsors, Brittany Force is not planning to compete this week at the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio, where she would have driven the Cornwell Tools Chevrolet Top Fuel dragster,” the team said. “Instead, she will remain at the hospital with her family in solidarity for her father.”

Austin Prock will be the lone JFR driver this weekend in Ohio.
