In an entertainment world that bombards viewers with endless violence and smut, "Driving Force" is a welcome and hilarious distraction. We get to follow the most legendary drag racer, John Force as he attempts to bond with his three racing daughters after missing out on a lot of things in their life in pursuit of his championships and tries to patch things up with his estranged wife Laurie. John Force may come off as a hot head and his daughters may seem like typical spoiled girls but no family is perfect and people like to see dysfunction. Plus that is only one side to the family being shown. If the Force family was presented like Ward and June Cleaver or Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, this show would have been yanked after the first episode. Hopefully this show will bring publicity to NHRA and will show viewers that the world of drag racing is more than racing a nitro fueled funny car or dragster down a quarter mile at 300+ mph and signing autographs. It is a business and a lot of hard work as the Force family proves while trying to make their mark and come together as a legendary racing family.
