Courtney Force Thrilled With Team’s Consistency at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park

Englishtown, NJ (June 15, 2017) – Heading into the tenth race of 2017 NHRA Mellow Yellow Drag Racing season at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in NJ, Courtney Force couldn’t be happier with her car, and her team.

“I can’t say enough about my team and how they have been performing lately” Force told me as the crew was prepping her Advance Auto Parts Chevy Camaro SS Funny Car for a second day of qualifying.

“We’ve set an un-official fast ET record at 3.804 seconds during pre-season testing and set a track record at Charlotte.”

“The energy and team flow here is exciting, and I couldn’t be happier with the car” she said. “It’s been real consistent on race day” she added, and she couldn’t be more right.

Courtney has qualified no less than fourth in every race since the Winter Nationals at Pomona, and has been the in top two in the last six races heading into the Summer Nationals, where she was the number one qualifier with a 3.862 ET at 331.12 mph.

Speaking of Low ET, Force has ran the lowest ET of the field in the last three races.

But it’s the crew that she gives all the credit to, especially after the incident at the New England Nationals.

“Huge props to the crew and the fab shop for getting another car built after the explosion at New England” Force said.

The engine of the car exploded into a huge fireball after she crossed the finish line during the first round of qualifying.

“They put together another car and got us into the finals.” “We ran three rounds of qualifying with the spare car, ended up in the second spot and finished second on the weekend, they were amazing.”

Looking forward to the fourteen remaining races, Force said, “obviously we are always looking to go faster, and with the consistency we have been experiencing, we’re confident that we will keep punching the gap between us and the series leaders”.

“I’m real happy to be working with the crew I have, the spot that we are in, and I couldn’t be happier for all of our sponsors”

If Courtney and her team keep doing what they’re doing, they’ll be the epitome of the expression, “consistency is the name of the game”.
