John Force, a record six-time NHRA champion, has signed a multi-year contract with Ford to race Mustangs in Funny Car competition, beginning this weekend at the Slick 50 Nationals in Texas. Last year, Force posted an amazing 13 wins in 16 final- round appearances on his way to being the first drag racer in history to be named "Driver of the Year."

Force joins Tony Pedregon, who switched to a Mustang at the beginning of the season, to form a powerful 1-2 Funny Car punch. Pedregon finished second to Force in the final 1996 NHRA Funny Car standings.
