Let's talk -- little drag racing and we are pleased to bring in the forces sisters or at least two of them -- here on your left Courtney. On your right the divers and John force not pretty let me begin with TO. Powdered almost all of your siblings. And into drag racing I'm going to assume a large part of it is your dad John. Yeah I mean obviously we got involved in it because of my dad you know I never thought we'd all be racing. But you know it's just so we grab -- a check out of the drag races and that's what we loved and I can't imagine my life about it. Court even doing this a couple years and a couple more years and your sister. Are you tired at some point of all the comparisons in the standings talk between you and your dad. And now I mean I don't mine obviously might add the fifteen time champ at the watch a live up to it's -- doubling puts a little bit added pressure on me as a driver especially -- this is only my second season. But you know I think it's fun loving guy here -- my family and end you know a lot of people used to compare me my sister actually it was in the but he -- categories. I then my dad end announces that hopefully making this kind of -- my past friends. Pretty -- set the scene for those who maybe haven't announced the track. Lot of cars. My garage talk. Lot of guys this is being your your rookie season and how you cut it cut through all that in and have their -- some moments where there's just the awkward. Gender difference in the B guy a guy does something that was inappropriate but if they try to make a move. You know I mean it's. I love being out there I grew up around it's I'm just used and everyone out there is really some part of every wanna compete against I mean. I on the compete against one other girl and that my top feel it in top field. And at corny only competes against another girl in funny car. So I mean now it's male dominated there's nothing at -- -- -- -- we have a lot of kids that come out testing you know last I got strong pitchers so it's mostly a lot -- of the little girls that we didn't have the occasional parties and proposed a few times -- -- -- -- there you go out you know how those random people ought to come up and say things. But we just like Nen Tom you know -- -- -- it -- -- talks my crew guys which is also an intimidating factor right because he's known to be thought so we say protect us exactly send him over there. -- -- you said that the driver is -- I think it's different you know we grew up watching -- -- my dad and some of them being new drivers coming in so it's kind of fun you know being able to compete against and then I -- nice to have a crush on one of the drivers out of the -- done it since it's kind of funny how things change in the end that we all are really does. NHL is really does a tight knit family so it's a lot of fun coming out two and men in that being able to compete against the guys that you grew up watching your -- very. Tell you guys are certainly leaders and trail Blazers and on that note -- and got baskets. What are your dad think of the ESPN the magazine body issue and it it was gonna show the pictures there. I mean. Completely and it's. Yeah yeah I was it was down the middle and does Eric it was a really high in the -- parents you -- it was like forty mile an hour winds at the point that parachute open and knocking me all America. But now I mean it was a lot of fun my data you know he told me in. Up support me under percent whenever my decision was but you know I talked to my family got their support. Along with my sponsors the pilot had a made that decision actually asked me that to do the issue a year ago I turn it down wanted to establish myself with a driver first an NH RA. And that they approached me again this year and it deciding VI I think it's a great opportunity in the end that can pass it up and. Isn't part of it knowing that if all goes well and it's done tastefully candidates. That is recognition and positive recognition and as you say more attention towards NH RA. Definitely that's exactly you know what we're going where you know I thought what a better way to really showcase you know the athleticism of our sport you know we're driving these 101000 horsepower race cars. We're going on the track at -- not overthrew miles an hour just four seconds. I mean a female on a male dominated sport you know I don't work hard in the -- so. I would -- that kicks -- about every weekend and I mean I do a lot of -- train circuit training and I thought you know what an amazing issue. I and what an honor to be you know asked me a part of that and you know I just thought it was a -- a great way to really showcasing -- out close to the number -- NH RA.
