FORCE HOOD STARTS AND ENDS TESTING DAY WITH SUCCESS
NEFF MAKES LAP IN FORCE'S MUSTANG

PHOENIX (January 26, 2010) --- Ashley Force Hood started the day with a blistering run at Firebird International Raceway and she capped the day with an even better pass in her Dean Antonelli - Ron Douglas tuned Castrol GTX Ford Mustang. As the first John Force Racing Mustang to hit the track Force Hood covered the 1,000 ft. racing surface in 4.07 seconds at 305.73 mph as the last Mustang to power down the track she stepped it up with a 4.06 second, 310.34 mph run.

In the early session John Force also made a solid 4.10 second run at 306.99 mph behind the wheel of his Castrol GTX High Mileage Ford Mustang. 2009 Funny Car champion Robert Hight made three runs in his Auto Club Ford Mustang as crew chief Jimmy Prock tested a variety of clutch packages and tune ups. A day earlier Hight made the quickest run of the 2010 testing session a 4.05 second run at over 310 mph so today's slower times (5.03, 9.97, and 9.48 seconds) did not dampen his team's enthusiasm.

While most observers watched the testing action with mild interest the spectators and teams on-hand perked up when Mike Neff made the third and final pass of the day in John Force's Castrol GTX High Mileage Mustang. Neff the most recent NHRA national event winner, Auto Club Finals in November, has been involved with John Force's team throughout the Phoenix testing session and the team will have some future announcements about the overall organization of Force's racing operation.

After his run Neff commented on the experience.

"It was fun. It is always fun to climb into one of these Mustangs. It was a little stressful since it was John's Mustang and a few of the controls were in different places. It is not a big deal just a little awkward. It was exciting to make a run. I'm bummed it didn't make it to the top end. That is an awesome feeling to drive one of these Mustangs. I was glad to get back in it and keep my skills sharp," said Mike Neff.
