Four days after John Force’s 300-mph crash at PlayNHRA Virginia Nationals, the drag racing champion was moved from the trauma intensive care unit to the neuro intensive care unit, where the medical team can focus on his head injury.

The move was a welcome positive announcement for his family members, who have maintained a constant presence at the Richmond-area hospital since the accident.

The Force family has stated it’s grateful for the team of medical professionals who are caring for John, “and for the overwhelming number of heartfelt messages of prayer, support and concern.”

With the support of her family, team and sponsors, Brittany Force was not planning to compete at the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio, where she would have driven the Cornwell Tools Chevrolet Top Fuel dragster.

Brittany was to remain at the hospital with her family, while Austin Prock served as a replacement, representing the John Force Racing organization and sponsors.
