Hall of Fame driver John Force is making progress; still faces a long road to recovery following injuries suffered during an on-track incident June 23 in Richmond.

John Force Racing statement:

Less than two weeks after 16-time NHRA Funny Car world champion John Force suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), among other injuries that included a fractured sternum and a right wrist injury, following an engine explosion that sent his Funny Car into a concrete guard wall at over 300 miles per hour, doctors acknowledged his positive response to treatment. Force has moved out of neuro-intensive care and into acute neuro care at the hospital where he was transported by air ambulance on June 23.

The latest upgrade was welcomed by Force family members who have maintained a presence at the hospital since the NHRA icon’s arrival, but medical professionals emphasized once again that the journey ahead will be a long and difficult one.
