    Maybe he can use Wilk's car and just write Camaro with shoe polish on it. Lol

    They did so much as far as chassis changes etc. I'm sure at Alan's request, but Brittney did a really good job, she is a champion and didn't back into anything, I was a little disappointed with Torrence's response, but I understand.
    Kudos to her and her team for never giving up.

    Had Capps’ team taken care of their business, nobody would be talking about any diving. Don’t blame Hight; that team used the rules, stupid though they (the rules) may be, to their benefit.
    That being said, the racing all day was exciting. While none of my favorites were there in the end, it was still a pretty darned good race.

    waiting for one of our stat guys to run the numbers and prove Hight's round win against Force didn't make a difference in the end...

    Considering he won by 98 points, it didn't. Force and Worsham handing Ron back to back first round losses however.....

    Capps cant catch a break.7 out of 8 cars in left lane rd1 he would have beat.IF ron qualified 2 or 4 thousand fast/slower.different.

    I was really impressed with her, personally. It's obvious she has put in the work, and if you take out the hiccup in the Vegas final, her mental game appears to be turning the corner. Well done, young lady!

    It's funny that the daughter that early on seemed the least interested in making racing a career is the first one to be the champ.

    Agree with Torrence's comments and while it may seem like sour grapes, he did complain earlier on about it too. Sucks to see 2 guys win 8 races during the season but get passed by a few drivers who put together a couple of good races.

    She didn't back into it......IF you ignore the over 500 more points awarded to her by the stupid countdown reset. I'm sorry, but I just can't celebrate that win over Steve's season-long dominance.

    That said, it was plain to see that her team's performance during the countdown was pure Alan Johnson. I'm sure AJ told JF to go sit down.....I'M running this program.

    Congratulations to Brittany Force, Robert Hight, and John Force Racing.

    Like it, or not they played according to the rules and won 2 of the final 3 races being in the finals at all 3. Torrence's crash at Dallas had a huge momentum shift that they just couldn't recover from. I hate it for them, but I'm sure they'll be back to challenge for the Championship next year.

    Wasn't a fan of what happened at Vegas in Funny Car, but Robert did what he had to at Pomona, and would've won anyways with Capps losing to Worsham in Round 1.

    Some people it seems just do not like change.

    How about we go back to who ever wins the last race of the year in Pomona is World Champion?

    The New England Patriots one year were 16-0 in the regular season and lost in the Super Bowl to finish 18-1. That's life.

    Right next to the JFR kneepad wearers that cried "Daddy bought that championship!" when Alan was at DSR.
