NHRA Brittany Force Crash

Brittany Force cleared to race 2 weeks after jarring crash

CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) — Brittany Force has been cleared to return less than two weeks after a jarring crash in the NHRA season opener and plans to race this weekend at the Arizona Nationals.

Force arrived at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park outside of Phoenix on Thursday and got back in the dragster for the first time since a harrowing wreck at the Winternationals in Pomona, California, on Feb. 11. She plans to make her first pass during qualifying runs Friday.
