I don't think thats his call, he has had more "spot light" value to his sponsors now than anytime in his career.The sponsors want to enjoy that as long as the fans continue. The last thing they would do woul be to cut that short.i agree he needs to step down and focus on the teams and find a new driver - he has nothing to prove
Shelton- i agree with you. The team has made some error's that fans can actually recognize the Force team don't often show their mistakesI think he is finally showing he is human (and Coil too). Granted they have a lot going on but I don't think that really has much to do with their on track performance. Think about all the extra data they get from all the cars. Just missed the setup and a lot of the other teams have improved greatly and closed the gap in the past couple of years. Not a big Force fan but he is still the man to beat.
No doubt...IMHO John Force has done more for mainstreaming drag racing then all others combined....... until PINKS ......... with the combination of the 2 we are picking up a lot of new fans
I think Force is a great person and has done a tremendous amount for the sport as a whole. The other thing that I think you see alot more of now is not to many other teams go out and beat themselves against Force like they used to do in the past. How many times have you seen a team that could consistantly run a 4.90 all day but since it was Froce they would try to run a mid 4.70 and blow the tires off when if they had just ran their 4.90 they could have won the round? Funny car has gotten a lot more competitive in recent years and I don't think you will see any one car dominate like Force has anytime soon, if ever.Shelton- i agree with you. The team has made some error's that fans can actually recognize the Force team don't often show their mistakes
I'm not a real big fan either I think he is a great guy, and he has created an empire and spent his money and made good business decsions that allowed him to dominate a sport. Who can't respect what accomplishments.
At the same time I am kind of tired of the whole "force" thing and I would love to see some of the other teams/driver share some success. I am all for Wilkerson or the pedregon boys.
