EPPING, N.H. (AP) — John Force raced to his second Funny Car victory of the year and record 153rd overall, beating teammate Robert Hight on Sunday in the NHRA New England Nationals.

“(The win) represents a team effort,” Force said. “You have to look at both of these cars and all the people that take care of me, that’s what it’s all about. Robert helps me so much and, right now, I’ve got a car and we won today, and I did my job. I want to thank all the people in Epping for coming back.”
