John Force leaves Richmond hospital and goes to a brain injury rehabilitation center

NHRA Funny Car legend John Force was released from VCU Medical Center on Tuesday and boarded an AirMed ambulance for a flight to a neurological rehabilitation center where treatment will continue for the traumatic brain injury he suffered in his June 23 accident.

His departure from the facility where he had been hospitalized since his accident at the PlayNHRA Virginia Nationals was seen by his family members as a major step in the recovery process.

According to a statement from the team, Force still faces a long and difficult recovery and continues to battle symptoms of TBI. Force has been regularly visited by his family and enjoyed the company of his grandchildren Jacob and Noah Hood. He also celebrated his daughter Brittany’s birthday on July 7.

Family members also said there was no timetable for how long Force would stay at the new facility, which was chosen because of its track record in treating other racers with similar problems.
