One of the most familiar names in NHRA drag racing, John Force, will be back for the 2021 NHRA season.

After abstaining from much of the pandemic-shortened 2020 NHRA campaign, John Force Racing recently announced it will field three cars for 2021. John Force and Robert Hight (who also serves as President of John Force Racing) will compete in Funny Car, while Brittany Force will get back to racing in Top Fuel.

Despite having a delayed start this year, the 2021 NHRA season is officially slated to begin March 11th, at the 2021 AMALIE Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville, Florida.

As a result of the pandemic, the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, California has been pushed back and is scheduled for April 9-11.
