I love John Force, a few years ago I spent a few minutes with him. I was working patrol, and would take my lunch at the restaurant at Camarillo airport and watch airplanes.
When I walked in I saw Mr. Force sitting at a table with a few gentleman. I was a big fan and didn't want to bother him. I took my seat and ordered. Mr. Force excused himself and walked up to me. He was very kind and wanted to shake my hand (I was in uniform) said he appreciated law enforcement and we spoke for a few minutes. It made my day. I called him sir, he said call me John. He paid my tab without me knowing.
I meet him again two years later when I went to Pomona to watch the races. Standing on line with tons of folks, when I got up to the front, I said "John I appreciated you buying lunch in Camarillo" he looked up and told me to come behind the ropes. I took a tour of his setup and met Austin Coil.
Force is a great guy, never forgot where he came from. He is great for the sport and now for the Camaro.
He set a speed record that day at Pomona.
