Racer Courtney A New Force to be Reckoned With

We’re all pretty familiar with Ashley Force, the divine drag racer who’s very easy on the eyes. Well, Ashley also happens to have a cute sister by the name of Courtney, who’s also following in her sibling’s footsteps on the NHRA circuit.

Lucky for us, we’ll be able to follow Courtney’s trials & tribulations through the season as she starts work writing a new column for USA TODAY. Today marks Courtney’s journalistic debut, as she gives us some background on her racing lineage and what she expects to accomplish this summer.

(And we give you more pics after the jump.)

Although she’s all ready to burn rubber, Courtney still knows the value of a good education:

I promised my parents I would finish college before I started racing full-time so I am currently enrolled at Cal State Fullerton working on a degree in Communications. My rookie year in Top Alcohol Dragster was a lot of fun but I am ready to get into the meat of my second season.

Maybe this USA Today column can count towards college credit.

Anyway, here’s some more photos of Courtney that might get your motor running. But don’t overheat - after all, she is only 20 years old.
