I just think it is not necessary to belittle someone else's accomplishments. It seems she really wants the publicity. The rivalry should be I kicked your butt on a hole shot and I will continue to do so because I am a better driver. My 2 cents.
Brittany came up through the ranks? Was there ever a question BF would end up in TF/FC? Or Courtney for that matter? The answer is NO!

Yes, all the Force girls came up through the ranks. Each spent multiple years in TA/D.

The point being, is it Leah looking for a rivalry or NHRA salivating over it?

I loved her comment how her husband does the clutch on his car. Wonder how long he will work there?

All the girls worked in the family business. I believe it was up to them what direction they took. Adria and Ashley kind of prove that.

What exactly counts as going up through the ranks? Racing in Sportsman for 2-: years and then jumping to Pro?

Yup. Not disagreeing with how he did it but I think daddy went agonizingly slow with them compared to a lot of others.

The Force girls moved slow because of Laurie Force setting conditions. She wanted the girls to finish college before becoming a full time professional race car driver. They were not running the A/Fuel cars until after they had graduated from high school. I think Laurie Force was looking out for her kids best interests. Always want to have a plan b because you never know what could happen.

A perfect explanation! Look how many drivers out there that expected to make a living as a PRO driver and ended up back at a 9 to 5 job. Sorry but I don't have enough fingers to count especially if I included my toes also.
