SONOMA, Calif. (AP) -- Courtney Force beat father John Force in the NHRA Sonoma Nationals on Sunday to break a tie with sister Ashley Force Hood for career Funny Car victories by a female driver with five.

Courtney Force outran her 65-year-old father with a 4.253-second pass at 296.24 mph in her Ford Mustang. She also won this this year at Topeka, Kansas, for the 100th female victory in NHRA history.

"It's cool to reach number five," Courtney Force said. "I'm very proud of my team. Obviously, I wouldn't be here without them and the hard work that they put in. I'm only as good as my team."

Khalid alBalooshi won in Top Fuel, Jason Line in Pro Stock and Eddie Krawiec in Pro Stock Motorcycle.

AlBalooshi won for the second time this season, beating teammate Shawn Langdon with a 3.912 at 309.42.

Line also raced to his second victory of the season, topping V Gaines with a 6.548 at 211.73 in a Chevy Camaro. Line has 33 career victories.

Krawiec grabbed his second victory of the year with a 6.854 at 193.99 on a Harley-Davidson against Jerry Savoie. Krawiec has 24 career victories.
