Funny Car driver John Force not showing signs of slowing as he closes in on retirement age

John Force is not showing his age.

A man who has three grandchildren and is three months away from retirement age, he's still blowing past the much-younger competition at 320 mph.

Force won his record-setting 16th Funny Car title last season and opened this season by winning the Winternationals at Pomona, Calif., for his 139th victory, another record.

Force has been through a lot during a career that started in 1979, including a nearly fatal crash in 2007, but kept fighting his way to the top.

He heads into this weekend's races at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Ariz., with the points lead and no intention of slowing down anytime soon.
