NHRA Funny Car driver Courtney Force, the winningest female driver in NHRA history has also taken delivery of a 2019 Corvette ZR1 and she’s been sharing photos of it on her Twitter feed ever since!
Courtney took delivery of her Torch Red Corvette ZR1 with the high wing ZTK performance package back in May from Bill Estes Chevrolet in Indianapolis.
In the first tweet she shared, she describes herself “like a kid in a candy shop” as she starts up the car inside the dealership and hears that exhaust note!
Like a kid in a candy shop right now. SOUND ON!?That is the best noise ever!! Just picked up my 2019 @chevrolet Corvette #ZR1 that I spec’d out. Loving that torch red & carbon??? Thank you @BillEstes_Chevy for helping facilitate my deal! #Obsessed @TeamChevy @ChevroletPerf pic.twitter.com/7ulIjjRhl4— Courtney Force (@courtneyforce) May 22, 2018
Here, Courtney shares the obligatory “My new car is back home in the garage” pic. Her garage looks nothing like mine…or yours! She also tags the ZR1 as the #LadyInRed which seems to be the car’s nickname from here on out.
But being a professional NHRA racer doesn’t leave much time for Corvette cruises, and knowing there is a new Corvette ZR1 back home makes those weekends-away-from-home just seem so long. Here, Courtney drops another post of the #LadyInRed when it was at the dealership.
Really diggin my new torch red @TeamChevy #ZR1 that I picked up last week! Can’t wait to have this bad boy back in CA for after my Chicago race to drive! Chevrolet built one mean beast ?????? #755HP #Corvette #CorvetteZR1 #LadyInRed @chevrolet pic.twitter.com/WChYolajnT— Courtney Force (@courtneyforce) May 29, 2018
And finally, Courtney and her ZR1 get the date night they’ve been waiting for!
We checked out Courtney’s racing statistics at NHRA for some background info. Her career best time is a 3.815 ET and her career best speed was 338.68 mph so she knows horsepower and performance. There’s not many can boast that their work vehicle is faster than a ZR1 so we think she’ll be right at home behind the wheel of her new Corvette!
Congratulations Courtney and enjoy the #LadyInRed!
