In a recent John Force NHRA Interview, here's a part we might find interesting...

Q: You had talked about possibly putting a Top Fuel team together. Is that still in the works?

FORCE: That idea is parked. Ford has no interest in the Top Fuel category until we can develop a Ford motor. There are two things they want. Stuff for new technology, which is a Ford drivetrain. Or they want a Ford Mustang body. Otherwise they have no interest.

The only reason they signed my daughter is because she is driving a Ford motor. And they have an interest in having a female driver. That is very important because that is a whole new market. Ford used to make cars for the husband to go to work, trucks, and the station wagon for the wife. Now they build cars so the wife can get up in the morning, drop the kids off, go to work and take corporate America out to lunch, in their car, and they don't want to go in a station wagon. Then they have to be able to run errands on the way home and pick up the kids too. Ford needs to build multi-purpose vehicles. Women are starting to run America and that is the way it is. So it is a combination of what Ford wants.

They need to build a car for women and men. But women are very important to Ford and that is why my daughter is on the five-year plan with them.

Tom,

She's got it made, if this is what she really wants to do.
