John Force’s daughter provided an update Sunday after her father was involved in a scary crash during an NHRA event.

Force’s Funny Car caught fire due to an engine explosion and smashed into a wall at Virginia Motorsports Park on Sunday. The incident was a very frightening one, as the car was completely smashed up by the time it came to a stop.

Force’s daughter Brittany said her father was going to be “okay,” and that she had held his hand while traveling in the ambulance with him after the crash.

The NHRA issued its own statement, noting Force was “alert” after the crash before being transported to a local medical facility for further evaluation.

The 75-year-old Force actually won the race prior to the explosion. It ranks as one of the worst crashes in the 16-time NHR champion driver’s career.
