introductions: the crowd always responds to the appearance
of John Force, especially when he's the #1 qualifier. At
the time of this writing we all know that John took the
2013 Funny Car championship, but even back at this event
I made the prediction to several people that he was going
to be unstoppable and would win the season.
Force is no stranger to fan response, either. She gets mobbed
and she handles it with real grace and charm, and always
with that smile. She's a real professional.
