Beating Cruz Pedregon in the Funny Car final to win the NHRA Kansas Nationals at Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas, Force was the No. 1 qualifier and clocked a 4.148 second run at a blazing 306.46 miles per hour. In her third season, Force has three wins previously and was named the 2012 NHRA Rookie of the year.
With her four career wins, Force is one of 14 women who have won an event in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. The first female winner was Shirley Muldowney in 1976.
To help commemorate this historic moment, Lionel Racing has teamed up with John Force Racing and Traxxas to design a special Courtney Force Traxxas/100th Win for Women Funny Car die-cast. Not to exceed 1,000 pieces the die-cast will be painted in an iridescent Mesma Chrome finish and imprinted with 100th Win, May 25, 2014 and Topeka, Kansas.
Plus, 100 of these die-cast will come autographed by Courtney Force and randomly seed throughout the production run. This is a collector’s piece designed to be showcased by diehard John Force Racing fans.
