CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- This weekend in Charlotte, some of the fastest female racers on the planet will be competing at the zMAX Dragway.

FOX8’s Cindy Farmer got to catch up with Courtney and Brittany Force, who drive cars that reach speeds of up to 320 mph.

The sisters are the daughters of John Force, who is the winningest driver in the history of drag racing.  They say their dad told them to never let the fact that they are women get in the way of their driving.
