Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 26, 2009
Ashley Force Hood, one of America's most popular drivers and a top contender for the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series Funny Car championship, will be the Newsmaker of the Week on The Race Reporters radio show, Wednesday, August 26, 7 p.m. EDT, on http://www.PowerUpChannel.com.
Force Hood has one win this season and is third in points. Driving the Castrol GTX Ford Mustang for the team owned by her father, 14-time titlist John Force, she has advanced to six final rounds. She earned her fifth No. 1 qualifying spot of the season last weekend at Maple Grove Raceway despite a major engine explosion that meant Force had to race a backup Mustang. Last year, Ashley became the first female driver to win an NHRA Funny Car event, when she defeated her father at Atlanta Dragway. She was NHRA's top rookie in 2007.
John Force was the Newsmaker guest on the debut episode of The Race Reporters in June, 2009.
Host Michael Knight will be joined for the journalists' roundtable by Holly Cain, of AOL Sports; Jeff Wolf, of the Las Vegas Review-Journal; and Bobby Bennett, editor of CompetitionPlus.com.
