Seeking Perfection at 320 Miles Per Hour

As the President of John Force Racing, Inc., Robert Hight does not get a seven figure salary, the use of a private jet or stock options. What he does get is the opportunity to drive what many consider the most outrageous race car on the planet, the 320 mile-an-hour Auto Club of Southern California Ford Mustang Funny Car.

In Hight's world, that is compensation enough.

The intense 43-year-old has taken his car to more final rounds (42), won more races (27) and started from the No. 1 qualifying position more often the last eight years than any other professional Funny Car driver. Beyond that, he’s won the championship (2009) and he has set NHRA national performance records.
