BRISTOL, Tenn. -

Last year at the Bristol Dragway, Funny Car driver John Force defeated his daughter Courtney on the way to winning the Thunder Valley Nationals.

Asked about a possible rematch on Sunday, Father's day:

"The tension gets high," Courtney Force told News 5 WCYB.

"He beat me last year. I am looking for revenge and hoping to give him Father's day off this year."

Courtney qualified sixth while John is starting seventh heading into Sunday's eliminations.

"I have four beautiful girls and they all work for my company," John Force told News 5 WCYB Saturday.

"I'm a lucky man."
