Gary Densham is one of the most likable guys in drag racing. Densham defies the misnomer that nice guys finish last. After toiling with shoestring budgets and inferior equipment for years, Densham was approached in 2001 by John Force to drive a third Funny Car. Since joining Force, Densham has won eight races including the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals this season. So after all his success, why is Densham leaving John Force Racing to run his own team again?
