The National Hot Rod Association, known as the NHRA, was founded by Wally Parks in 1951 in the State of California to provide a governing body to organize and promote the sport of drag racing. The "Nationals", held in the summer and the winter each year, are the premier events in drag racing that brings together the best cars and drivers from across North America.
NHRAFunnyCar rookie Ashley Force is the hottest athlete in sports, according to AOL's recent online-voting tournament.
Force handily defeated 31 other female competitors to win the woman's bracket, where she was never seriously challenged in the five rounds, then soundly defeated New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, winner of the men's bracket, for the overall title.
After all, Wally founded NHRA now the governing body of the worlds largest motorsport and the two nurtured the sport together, making drag racing one of the most popular spectator sports in the country today.
