At the Nats! Backstage at John Force RacingS

We're at the ProCare RX Supernationals at Englishtown, where rubber comes to be atomized and sprinkled like invisible pixie dust over crowds of race fans dressed in mid-period Modells. Eardrums are begging for absolution and logos illustrate where the bills are sent. The $1.8 million event will culminate tonight in a funny-car shootout between hotshot Ron Capps in the Brut Dodge Charger and John Force, who's trying to pull out of a slump that would make the Chicago Cubs order goat curry for nine. We'll see how Force does later tonight. But we did score a guided tour through the his team's wrenching station, where they can build an entire car from chassis up in 75 minutes. They have an awesome set of tools.
