NASCAR Race Weekend Central

Off the Wall With: Courtney Force

In the spotlight this week: NHRA standout Courtney Force, fiancée of last week’s driver, Graham Rahal

What’s fun besides racing?

Courtney Force: I don’t know. I’ve been out here since I was a kid so racing’s really my life but any time I get to have a day off I enjoy being back at home with my family, hanging out with my little nephews and my niece and cooking in the kitchen.

What’s the top item on your bucket list?

Force: The top item on my bucket list is probably to win a championship.

Your go-to on movie night is:

Force: Any sort of Will Ferrell movie that’s a comedy. Anything that’s funny. (FS: Graham told us that you always pick the movies.) Yes, because he would watch sports if they made a movie of it.

What’s one item that’s always in your grocery bag?

Force: My family makes fun of me that I always have cheese in my grocery bag. Every time we have a barbecue I make sure to get assorted cheeses so they give me a hard time about that.

Most memorable fan interaction?

Force: A few weeks ago a guy had my signature tattooed on him. That was probably the craziest thing I’ve ever seen.
