Drag racer John Force returned to his home on Saturday after spending 27 days in the hospital, but still has a long way to go before he makes a full recovery. Force was traveling at more than 300 mph in the Funny Car semifinals of the O'Reilly NHRA Fall Nationals when the violent crash that split his car in two occurred. Watching the video of the accident will leave you shocked that he only suffered a broken ankle, foot, hand and fingers along with injuries to a knee and wrist. Force will still have regular therapy and is scheduled to have pins removed from his legs in five weeks. Most of his time out of bed will be spent in a wheelchair or a walker, but he plans to attend the last two NHRA events of the season. [Sports Illustrated]
