Peers offer thoughts, well-wishes to injured Force
My prayers go out to the entire Force family. I know John will make a full recovery because that is John Force. It's John's heart and indomitable spirit that ultimately will pull John through this time faster than most could heal. John Force is more than just a drag racer. John is a role model for our entire community. We may be on different teams, but we are all one family out here, and we all love John and wish him an all-out, Force-style recovery!
"We're just thinking about John and his family. You know, I've known John for a long time, and we've always gotten along well. Obviously, I was really young when I started racing against him, and he mostly just called me 'Kid' or even 'Opie' for a lot of years, but he's always treated me with a lot of respect, and I count him as one of my friends out here. This deal looks like it's going to set him back for a while, but I fully expect to see John back out here as soon as he can do it. We're pulling for him.
"I couldn't believe what I was seeing as we came back up the return road. We saw the two cars get together, and they both hit the wall hard, and then we saw them skid down the track toward the sand. More than anything, I wanted to get over there to help him, but a very serious security guard wouldn't let me. I'm a driver, with clearance to go anywhere on this track, but she was just doing her job I guess, and she wanted no part of me running over there and hopping the wall. I told her 'That's my friend, I want to help him,' but she didn't want any of that. It was frustrating to not be able to get over there, and I'm very concerned for John and how he's doing, but I'm also very relieved that he's still with us, because that was a horrendous crash."
"All of us are thinking about John, and frankly we're all talking about the fact he's hurt badly but still with us. It was a nasty crash, and he's got a lot of work to do to get back out here, whenever that's possible, but you don't win as many races and championships as he has without having the ultimate amount of dedication. We're all with you and your whole family, John."
"It's sure a terrible thing that happened to John. We really need to investigate how to keep our cars safer. I watched what happened, and it's not good. Our prayers are with John, his family, and team."
"I have to admit it really shook me up. It took me back to when I was a kid and my dad told me about these wrecks where cars got cut in half. I ran over there to try and help, and there was no cockpit. It really scared me. I just wanted to hear that he was okay. Broken bones will mend. I wanted to hear he was talking, and if he was swearing, even better. From what it looked like, he's very lucky."
"I'm glad that he's alive. From that point, you can fix anything. A lot of credit goes to the Safety Safari, the medical team, and the rules package for the way the cars have to be built so that you can survive an accident like that. I feel safer in my car that goes 330 mph than I do in my rental car going 55 mph on the way to the track. I feel like I could run over a nuclear bomb, and I trust in that. He'll be back racing one day; you can count on that."
NHRA.com's Phil Burgess:
"And right now, he's probably really, really pissed. Not that something happened to his race car, but that he's going to be on the sidelines for a bit. After all he's been through this season – stressing as Ashley got her feet wet and, yes, struggled at times, losing Eric, having a less-than-competitive race car, and twice battling his way back into Countdown fields -– this is no way for it to end. And it won't. You can bend him, but you can't break him."
