The one thing that john force loves doing though is racing funny cars and everything. Those cars are not something to just be playing around with though because they are actually really dangerous cars in they could get you killed if you are not careful with them. The very first car Force has ever had he bought it from a buddy in australia he wrecked the car inm he had to get the car fixed so Force bought the car in rebuilt the whole car then took it to the drag strip to get some pictures taken of the car. The motors of the cars take so much beating from one run that they have to fix it right after they are done because they put out so much power that it puts a lot of stress on the motor and they can only run for six to seven seconds before they completely detonate. John Force actually has his own businesses in he completely hand builds all the funny cars and the motors for them. He says they cost around $175,000 to just make one car for like a couple passes. Force actually spends more time at his businesses, going to the drag strip, or on his way home from them then he spends at his own home. Force only believes that the two most important things since he started his racing career is that its alot better to be winning and pleasing your sponsors. But to even get the funny car to the finish line is to get traction they have to do a long burnout then back all the way back up in start to stage the car to get ready to go down the track.
