Ollie Lifetime Achievement Award
It's not surprising that readers voted the always-jabbering John Force as the Funny Car Driver All-Star, making Force a winner for the eighth straight time. It's Force's popularity that also made him the Ollie recipient for '98. Could it be due to Force's winning ways, his dangerous driving, his awesome antics, his witty words, or just because of his publicity ploys? We don't know, but it sure has made Force a superstar standout and worked to make a lot of non-racing people rabid fans of drag racing. Force always has something up his sleeve, we just can't wait to see what's next.
