Jerry Toliver, driver of the WWF Racing Chevy Camaro, who has emerged as a major Funny Car contender for the 2000 Winston championship, will forever be remembered as the driver opposite Force when he earned his record-breaking 86th victory.

That doesn't worry Toliver, who has claimed two wins and currently leads the Winston point standings in Funny Car. In fact, the Huntington Beach, Calif. driver says he's proud to be a part of drag racing history and hopes to be in a position to break Force's record some day. "We had Force against the ropes, but didn't knock him out," Toliver said. "We congratulate him on the record and are proud to be battling with him this season. Our WWF team was hoping to delay his celebration, but now that it's over, the real battle for the Winston championship only intensifies."
