John Force Racing is an NHRA drag racing team. In over 30 years of competition, John Force Racing has won 18 Funny Car championships. The current line-up of drivers includes John Force, Robert Hight, Courtney Force, and Brittany Force.[1] Past drivers include John's daughter Ashley Force Hood, team crew chief Mike Neff,[2] Eric Medlen, who lost his life while racing for the team and whose number 4 appears on all their cars, Tony Pedregon, who was the first driver other than Force to win a series championship driving for the team, and Gary Densham.

Force's team had a long term relationship with Castrol and Ford Motor Company, with Castrol serving as Force's primary sponsor for over 30 years and Ford his engine provider for 20 years. Both of those relationships came to an end following the 2014 season when British Petroleum, Castrol's parent company, ceased their sponsorship and Ford pulled out of the NHRA. Force's Funny Car teams now run Chevrolets.
