Dec 15, 2014 - Courtney Force, 26, is a drag racer, driving the Traxxas Ford
Mustang Funny Car in the NHRA.
She lives in California and graduated from Cal State.
She won the 2009 Top Alcohol Championship.
In 2012 she was Rookie of the Year in Top Fuel/Funny Car.
This year she grabbed the record of most wins by a female driver in NHRA history.
In 2013, Force appeared inside and on the cover of ESPN The Magazine's
"The Body Issue." Presented on this page are photos from that shoot.
She was approached her rookie year to be in the issue, but she turned it down.
After she got a few wins under her belt she decided to do it.
She says, "I was working really hard in the gym to keep up in a male-dominated
sport - there's me and one other female in Funny Car, that's it. It's a great way to
showcase your body to show people we are athletes."
