John Force took his 10,000-horsepower Castrol GTX HIGH MILEAGE Ford Mustang to a Mello Yello Series final for the seventh straight time Saturday but the sport's biggest winner frittered away what would have been his first ever victory in the Pep Boys Carolina Nationals when he was guilty of a rare foul start in the final against Matt Hagan.

"This was driver error," said the reigning and 16-time World Champion. "My race car outran him; it whipped him. I got jacked-up, I heard them yelling 'they're running Pro Stock', I knew I was late (and) I changed my routine.

"I know better," he continued. "I'm so furious at myself. You don't change your routine, and yet I changed it and I screwed up all the work we did. You don't (win championships) by making those kinds of mistakes. I'm embarrassed."

Despite his obvious disappointment at Saturday's result, the 65-year-old drag racing icon could take some solace in the fact that he extended his lead in the Funny Car driver standings over teammate Robert Hight and the Auto Club Ford.

Moreover, he knows he's taking a great race car into Sunday's 29th annual AAA Texas Fall Nationals contested on the same Texas Motorplex track.

Force, who has won a record 141 NHRA tour titles in a career spanning four decades, will start from the No. 5 position Sunday in a race in which his youngest daughter, Courtney, will start from the front after a track record-setting 4.039 second, 314.90 mile per hour qualifying run on Friday night.

Although the Pep Boys Nationals is the only event in the 24-race series in which Force has a losing record (5-6), he did manage to take care of little unfinished business Saturday by making it to the final round for the first time.

After winning his first round race at zMAX Dragway outside Charlotte, N.C., six days ago, Force finished upSaturday on the Texas supertrack on which he suffered career-threatening injuries seven years ago in a 300 mile-an-hour crash.

On Sunday, he'll try once more to get his first win in Texas since that 2007 accident in which he suffered injuries that required seven hours of reconstructive surgery and a month-long stay in a Dallas hospital.

Courtney, meanwhile, will start her Traxxas Mustang from the No. 1 qualifying position for the second time in three years. For her effort, the 26-year-old former high school cheerleader will oppose two-time former World Champion and former JFR driver Tony Pedregon in the first round.

Her dad, meanwhile, will face off with journeyman Jeff Arend and Hight, who was ousted by Hagan inSaturday's semifinals, will race 2012 World Champ "Fast Jack" Beckman without benefit of lane choice.

Saturday's result was especially disappointing since three of the four semifinalists were in Fords. In addition to Force and Hight, a resurgent Bob Tasca III drove his Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford into the semifinals. It was the best performance of the year for the 37-year-old Ford dealer.

Unfortunately, it gets no easier for Tasca Snday when he lines up in the first round opposite Hagan. It won't be any walk in the park for Tim Wilkerson, either. After getting into the AAA Fall Nationals on his last attempt, the veteran owner, driver and tuner on the Levi, Ray and Shoup Shelby Mustang will oppose No. 3 qualifier Ron Capps on Sunday.

"We're the ones who put ourselves in that position," said the 17-time tour winner. "The car was driving me a little nuts. You know, we ran a 4.11 (Friday) but that was a hundredth too slow to make the top 12. Today, I was just hoping to run something in the 4.20 range, but in Q3 we had the extra challenge of trying win a round. I was trying to run a 4.12 to 4.15, but didn't pull it back enough and we smoked the tires and painted ourselves into a corner.

"I had the data to give me an idea of how to make it go to the other end, but when you're already bumped out of the field, you start to worry about mechanical gremlins or other bad luck happening to you," he said. "Fortunately, it went right down there. That's taking it right to the wire and that's completely opposite of what I wanted to do here. Now maybe we can make the most of it on Sunday."

"It feels good to go out there and have this Traxxas Ford Mustang back and going back to the No. 1 spot here in Texas," Courtney said of the seventh No. 1 of her career. "I'm really proud of my team for giving me a good race car this weekend and I definitely hope to continue it tomorrow.

"You know, we didn't have such good luck last weekend in Charlotte so we're really hoping to turn things around. We could definitely use the points to climb our way back up there for the Championship," said the five-time tour winner. "I definitely think we still have a chance at it."
