After losing a family feud with her dad in the very first round of the first race in the Countdown to the Championship, Courtney Force drove her way back into title contention Sunday with a wire-to-wire win in the 29th annual AAA Texas Fall Nationals at the Texas Motorplex.

The 26-year-old, who has battled inconsistency this season, guided her Traxxas Ford Mustang past the Toyota of former Top Fuel World Champ Del Worsham in the money round, tip-toeing down a 135 degree racetrack in 4.227 seconds at 301.07 miles per hour for her third win of the year.

That was a far cry from the track record-setting numbers she put up in qualifying (4.039 seconds, 314.90 mph), but that didn't make the win any less sweet - especially since it powered her into fourth place in points behind her dad, drag racing icon John Force, herbrother-in-law, Robert Hight, and 2012 series champion Matt Hagan.

"We've got a great car," Courtney said. "Anytime you go No. 1 qualifier and then win the race, it's a major accomplishment. I think that's the second time this year we've done that. It's a credit to my guys, especially Ron Douglas and Dan Hood."

There obviously was no hangover from her loss at Charlotte.

"Any time you're going up against dad, it's going to be tough," she said, "but there was no moping after he beat me. That's just racing. You learn from it and you go out the next weekend and get better. I'm definitely not afraid to race him."

The biggest surprise of the day was the elder Force's exit in the second round at the wheel of a Castrol GTX HIGH MILEAGE Ford Mustang in which he had posted the quickest time of race day (4.111) in a first round win over journeyman Jeff Arend.

The loss ended at seven the 65-year-old's streak of consecutive final round appearances. Nevertheless, when the Countdown resumes this week in the 17th annual AAA Insurance Midwest Nationals outside St. Louis, Force will lead the field by 45 points in his bid to claim his 17th championship.

It was a so-so day for the rest of the Ford contingent.

Bob Tasca III, who took his Motorcraft/Quick Lane Shelby Mustang to the semifinals of the Pep Boys Carolina Nationals completed at the Motorplex on Saturday, didn't get out of round one Sunday, losing to Hagan in a close race, 4.221 at 270.81 mph to 4.243 at 297.29 mph.

Hight, a two-time winner at the Motorplex, lasted one round longer before dropping a decision to Courtney, while Tim Wilkerson, owner, driver and tuner on the Levi, Ray and Shoup Mustang, lost a heartbreaker to Worsham in the semifinals.

"I don't think there's anything wrong with saying I enjoy beating the big multi-car teams out here," Wilkerson said after taking out two of the biggest Countdown players - Ron Capps in round one and Matt Hagan in round two, both of them in Don Schumacher Racing Dodges.

"I know what they run on and I know what they can share in terms of stacks of data," he said, "and they know I'm by myself and they know what I run on. It's got to get under their skin a little bit when our team takes 'em out. I love racing, and winning is really good, so I'm never ashamed to get fired up when I beat a team that dwarfs us. It's a David versus Goliath thing, I guess."

In the semifinals, though, Worsham's 4.178 was just too good.

"I would've had a hard time beating that, so hats off to those guys for being able to run a number like that on a track that hot," Wilk said. "I was pretty sure one or both of us would have traction problems out there, so I was ready for a pedal-fest, but we both made it all the way and he was just faster. That's how this sport works.

"My guys were a little down, and I like that they're so passionate about doing well, but I told them we had as good a day as anyone here, running against some Goliath teams, and we did okay. St. Louis is next, and with that being our home race, we might as well win that one."

Courtney also took down one of the Goliaths - but in her case it was teammate Hight and the Auto Club Ford in which he has won a category best five races this year.

"That was a huge win for us," Courtney said. "We needed it too, because we fell so far back after dad took me out at Charlotte."

The sixth win was especially significant because it tied the graduate of Cal State-Fullerton with the late Eric Medlen, a rising young star at JFR who lost his life in a testing accident at Gainesville, Fla., in 2007.

"Tying Eric is special. I was very close with him and looked up to him. So obviously, that is very special for me and my team," she admitted. "And to get the win out here in the homeland of Traxxas, the fastest name in radio control. I'm excited for our team and I can't wait to get to St. Louis."

The victory also tied her with friend and rival Alexis DeJoria for most Funny Car wins by a woman in a single season and made her the sixth different JFR driver to win on the all-concrete track at the Motorplex, the track on which John Force suffered the most serious injuries of his 36-year pro career.

Force crashed after winning his second round race with Kenny Bernstein in 2007 and, after six hours of reconstructive surgery, spent a month in rehab at Baylor University Medical Center.

Although he's won two championships since that crash, the Hall of Famer more than once has said that he will not feel that he is all the way back until he wins again on the track on which it happened. Unfortunately, his next opportunity is a year away.
