Funny Car Racer Courtney Force Goes Nude for ESPN [PHOTOS]
Daughter of Drag Racing legend John Force made the decision at the age of 7 that she was going to race funny cars like her dad. Oh, She also recently decided to pose nude for ESPN.
25-year-old Courtney Force is the youngest daughter of 15 time NHRA Funny Car Champ John Force and his wife Laurie. She earned her NHRA Funny Car license in 2011, and currently drives the Ford Mustang Traxxas Funny Car owned by her dad. Courtney’s sisters also grew up to become racers, Brittnay currently drives the Brandsource Top Fuel Dragster, and older sister Ashley raced, but has now retired from competitive racing.
Courtney Force recently decided to strip down for the ESPN Body Issue and did a great interview piece… and “the photo”. (We would like to add, that her body is rockin’! She trains constantly, and it shows.)
When asked about other sports she participated in as a youngster she told ESPN,
I was in dance, gymnastics, cheer and softball. In high school, I was a cheerleader, but I was also taking auto shop class, kind of like the best of both worlds. I like the girly side of everything, but I really love these race cars. My sisters were cheerleaders, too. Dad hated coming to our cheer competitions because he was afraid we would fall and break our necks. Yet he was supportive when we got into 300-mph Funny Cars! My dad wished he had four boys and ended up with all girls, and three of us went on to race professionally. I don’t think he expected that at all.”
Here are some pics of Courtney we put together from her Facebook Page…
