    January 16, 2014 No comments

    The three racing Force daughters were guests on The Queen Latifah Show that aired Wednesday, Jan. 8.  Ashley Force Hood and Brittany and Courtney Force sat down with the versatile Queen Latifah, the talk show host/actress/singer, to talk about racing as well as being role models for women around the country. After the in-studio segment, the four women took it to the track for a fun racing segment that included actor James Van Der Beek. “Those Krazy Karts were so much fun. It was awesome to race James Van Der Beek and Queen Latifah. James got the win, but I was spinning in circles, and he got around me at the last second,” said Courtney. “It was an honor to be on her show, and we are looking forward to having her come out to the Winternationals in Pomona. It is fun to do a show with someone who is that enthusiastic about girl power, fast cars and racing.”
