Brittany Force’s drag racing career is highlighted by her 2017 NHRA season. Brittany made history by becoming the first woman in 35 years, and only the second ever, to win a Top Fuel World Championship.

Brittany was only sixth in points with one win in two final round appearances entering the 2017 Countdown to the Championship, NHRA’s six race playoffs, but was unstoppable thereafter. Brittany piloted her 11,000-horsepower dragster to four final rounds while winning three of the six races. She sealed the deal with a dominating performance in the season-ending Auto Club Finals at Pomona, Calif.

In that race, she qualified No. 1, set track and event records and became just the 12th pro driver to end a championship season with a wire-to-wire victory in the final event.

Coming off her championship season, Brittany was faced with adversity. She opened 2018 with a devasting crash at the Winternationals hosted at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, the same track where she had won the world championship just two months prior. Brittany finished 2018 fifth in the points standings with a win in Houston and two No. 1 qualifying positions.

In 2019, teamed up with stand-out veteran crew chief David Grubnic, Brittany had two wins, including a bucket list victory at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway during the Countdown to the Championship and her second consecutive victory at the NHRA SpringNationals in Houston.

In 2021, Brittany put together an impressive streak of eight consecutive No. 1 qualifying positions for a career best total of 12 in a single season. She also had a historic win when she doubled-up win with her father, 16-time world champion John Force at Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, Kan. It was the first time in NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series history a father and child duo shared the winner’s circle and the fifth time John Force Racing has had a Funny Car / Top Fuel double-up.

Brittany got her drag racing start at Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School. After completing the licensing process, Brittany raced in Super Comp for three seasons and in the Top Alcohol Dragster division for three more.

When it came time to turn pro, Brittany opted for a ride in a Top Fuel dragster, the first in John Force Racing’s history. In her debut season, Brittany won the 2013 Auto Club’s Road to the Future Award as the NHRA Rookie of the Year. Brittany won her first NHRA national event in 2016 at the Gatornationals in Gainesville, Fla., she finished that season with three victories.

Rear Tires

The Goodyear slicks on the rear are a maximum of 18 inches wide and nearly 10 feet in circumference. Air pressure is 6-8 pounds per square inch (psi).

Manifold

The intake manifold is what the supercharger sits atop and all the fuel and air go through the manifold into the cylinder heads.

Canopy

The canopy is made of carbon fiber and is virtually bulletproof. It’s purpose is to keep debris out of the cockpit and keep the driver safe inside.

Clutch Management

A hydraulic system that allows the throw out baring to move back and the centrifugal levers in the clutch to come in one at a time.

Rear Wing

The 3 element wing made of carbon fiber works to create downforce. It’s shape dictates how the air moves over and under the wing. It is designed to apply downforce (in excess of 5,000 pounds) to the rear tires for better traction.

Clutch

Our clutches are 10.5 inch titanium centrifugal clutches. The clutch consists of a flywheel, 5 floaters, 6 clutch discs, a pressure plate, pressure plate cover and 18 levers.

Fuel Pump

Our fuel pump is a gear pump that’s turned by the camshaft and displaces well over 100 gallons per minute of fuel during a run.

Front Wing

The front wing is designed to add front downforce to the dragster as the car gains speed. The fuel tank is located in the front of the dragster and gets lighter as you go down the track. The wing makes up for the weight lost in fuel.
