No matter whether you are a fan or not, Force is good for the sport. Went in the stands after the win. Pretty cool.

I thought it was great to say Thanks to Austin Coil and Berny Fedderly.

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

Yep, Force is goofy but one heck of promoter. Class act thanking everybody all the way back when he started.

Is Force important? Let's put it this way. If he, Schumacher and Kalitta were suddenly not racing, there would be no top fuel or funny car. Those teams are more/less keeping everybody going in the class.

Besides being a hell of a racer, he’s a promotor and a business man. Pretty impressive. Shallow staged too! I bet he’s sore this morning. Fans got their money’s worth. Not worthy

It's a social media site based on drag racing. Sure it's going to be on there.

I was never much of a Force fan for many years. I root for the underdog often, and he has seldom been. Plus, the multiple cars thing didn't seem right to me for a long time. But as years went by, and I learned more about Force the person, I appreciated him more. And it was mentioned above, if there were no Force, no Don Schumacer, no Don Purdome and no Kaletta, there would be little if any competitive Fuel racing. You can go down the list of owners and important drivers, and if you took 10 of them away, fuel would evaporate so to speak.

Force pocket would take little while to run dry,but Kalitta's is different story. Friend of mine use to build their engines(Doug Dragoo No shyt that was his name) told me he could not bankrupt that team if he tried.Now this was when Scott was alive.

Like fuel or not it keeps sport alive fan wise.Yes those three keep fuel alive.
Force is one huge fan draw and funny as hell guy at times.

To put it in perspective. Connie Kalita net worth is north of $200,000,000. Don Schumacher net worth is north of $300,000,000. Forest Lucas net worth is north of $500,000,000. John Force net worth is $12,000,000.

Shake head
Well that’s interesting... I’d say Force gets more bang for the buck eh?? The old fashioned way!

I was a force fan for years, then came his obvious dive to let hight advance. That was the day the love died. Cheater ever after that stunt was my opinion of the guy. Other multi car teams race heads up, not his.
