NHRA: John Force offers Peyton Manning retirement congratulations (video)


While drag racing is his favorite sport, 16-time NHRA Funny Car champion John Force is also a big football fan — and he’s long been a big fan of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, dating back to his days with the Indianapolis Colts.

With Manning announcing his retirement from the game earlier this week, Force stepped in front of a camera to offer a public thank you for all the memories Manning leaves, as well as to offer him best wishes in the next chapter of his life going forward.

Check out the video: It’s a classy gesture from one classy athlete to another.
