Ashley Force or Danica?

OK John, way to go heapin' on the praise. How'd you even get laid?

On Sunday, April 27, 2008, Ashley chalked up her first victory at the NHRA Southern Nationals to become the first female driver to win a national Funny Car event.She powered her Castrol GTX Ford Mustang in a run of 4.827 seconds at 320.36 mph at Atlanta Dragway, smoking all competitors including her dad, John Force.

She told the Associated Press, "I'm just happy to win an event. That was the main thing. Being a female, that's exciting as far as the records and everything, but my team, we just wanted to get our first win. We went a whole year last year and got close a few times. To finally get it done, we're just so excited."

Said John, "I'm proud of her. She did her job. She didn't do anything stupid at the starting line. ... I love her."

Anyone named "Ashley" who is 24 years old is the grown-up spawn of some greedy, avaricious 1980's yuppie couple. that was one of the "required" names of the time. Do the math.

Danica is the real deal, who is a committed, experienced racer that has paid her dues.

And she is hottttttttttttttt. (And she knows it; look at the "Swimsuit" spread in this year's Sports Illiterate.)

at least TWICE!!

I do not dispute your Danica comments. However when I think greedy, avaricious 1980's yuppie it's not John Force . He's far more White Trash with Money (thanks Toby Keith). All three of the Force girls (and their yuppiesque names) aren't too shabby looking either.

However you look at it, any of these ladies have far more "balls" than I to do what they do!

"Ashley" and "Jason" were the REQUIRED names of yuppie-spawned babies in the greed-fueled 1980s.

Everyone should know that.

If both are ready and willing at the same time, Flip of a coin will decide. Otherwise, whomever could get me first. Or if both at the same time, maybe I could do a little of one and then switch to the other. Kinda of an equal time thing.

So you are saying Ashley is easier to satisfy since she doesn't insist that we "boom boom long time"?

Actually can you imagine what John Force would do to you if he found out you somehow were making his daughter unhappy?

He's crazy as is, I can't imagine what he's like pissed off!

I'm a slightly more than casual NHRA fan and have seen Force during interviews and have caught his show several times. He seems like a genuinely good guy who would do anything for anyone. I caught an episode of Overhaulin' where some friends and his wife set him up an got his 40's/50's vintage school bus hot-rodded and they guy was near tears with each "insider" they marched out.

I don't think there's a whole lot going on upstairs other than racing thoughts. Maybe a little business/marketing.
