NOT THE WAY THIS FORCE TEAM WANTED TO START THE SEASON
There are easier ways to start a season, and for the Courtney Force Funny Car team, they'll be behind the eight-ball for at least one day. In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, January 30, thieves hit the team's crew SUV in the parking lot of the Fairfield Inn in Chandler, Az., taking all four wheels and leaving the vehicle on blocks.
"Not a good way to start the season," said John Force Racing spokesman Elon Werner. "The team is working with local authorities, the hotel, and Auto Club to get us back on the road."
