Armed Forces End NHRA’s First Father-Daughter Nitro Sweep | Sports news


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – John and Brittany Force completed the first father-daughter nitro sweep in NHRA history at the Menards NHRA Nationals at Heartland Motorsports Park on Sunday.

72-year-old John Force won 154th place overall that year. He beat JR Todd on the final lap with a 4.019 second pass at 321.04 mph in a Chevrolet Camaro SS.

“I had a good day,” said Force. “Robert (Hight) was probably my toughest race because it’s hard to beat Robert. I only had one car that was pretty fast, but not the fastest. JR Todd was. But I won. The special thing was to do it with Brittany. I never had the chance with (daughters) Courtney and Ashley because they were always Funny Car and usually beat me, but with Brittany I finally got this double. “

Brittany Force won the Top Fuel, beating Clay Millican with a 3.783 on 324.75 for her first win of the season and 11th overall.

Rookie Dallas Glenn won the pro stock. He beat his KB Racing teammate Kyle Koretsky with a 6.651 at 206.13 in a Chevrolet Camaro.
