John Force transported to hospital after scary NHRA crash
Just weeks after his daughter suffered a terrifying crash, Funny Car veteran driver John Force was at the wrong end of his own.
Racing at NHRA Arizona Nationals Sunday, Force was facing Jonnie Lindberg in the elimination round when his car blew and crossed the center line after the finish. Force's car's parachutes were tangled with Lindberg for several minutes.
