2010 NHRA Auto Club Finals
The 2010 NHRA Auto Club Finals was one of the most exciting events held at Pamona in a long time. John Force clinched his 15th Funny Car championship on Sunday to complete an emotional comeback from a bad accident just 3 years earlier that had left his racing career in doubt.
“To come back… this is my life, if they took the driving away from me I’d get so big, I’d turn into Marlon Brando,” said Force, who defeated Jeff Arend in a photo finish in the Funny Car final. “I’m going to be another five years so you’re all stuck with me.”
