ENNIS, TX (October 12, 2015) —- John Force fans will be seeing red during the 30th annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals this weekend at the famed Texas Motorplex. They won’t be mad at the 16-time Funny Car champion who is only 150 points away from his 17th NHRA Mello Yello Funny Car championship but rather they will see Force behind the wheel of a newly designed red Traxxas Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car. The seven-time FallNationals winner will be joined in Traxxas themed race cars by daughter Courtney Force who will continue to campaign a pink Traxxas Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car for the second race in a row to support breast cancer awareness month.
“I love that fact that I’ll be running the red Traxxas Chevrolet in Ennis. Texas is the home state for Traxxas and they have been really good to John Force Racing and the NHRA. I have won the Traxxas Shootout a couple of times and I want to get another win at the Texas Motorplex. Courtney and I will both be promoting Traxxas as well as all our sponsors that weekend and hopefully one of us will get the win,” said Force, who last won at the Texas Motorplex in 2005.
In honor of the two Forces teaming up to support Traxxas, the fastest name in radio control, the Texas based company will be offering a special promotion during the FallNationals. The Traxxas Double-Up Promotion will be offered by the NHRA and Traxxas.
If either John or Courtney advances to the semi-finals, Traxxas will offer 10% off at Traccas.com. If either driver advances to the Final, fans will get 20% off at Traxxas.com. If John or Courtney win the AAA Texas FallNationals fans will get 20% off at Traxxas.com plus a free DTS-1 Drag Timing System with the purchase of two Traxxas vehicles. Fans need to use discount code “FORCE” which will be valid through 11:59 pm on Monday October 19, 2015 if John or Courtney reach the semis, final, or win.
“We definitely want to get as many round wins as possible and save some money for the fans on these Traxxas radio controlled race cars and trucks. We want everyone to keep an eye on John Force Racing and be ready to save some money when we hopefully win this race,” said John Force. “The competition is tough and I am in a battle for the championship so this weekend is important. I’ll do my best and I know Courtney will be at the top of her game like she always is. She won this race last year and we’ll see if one of us can do it again.”
John Force will also have a Traxxas firesuit for this weekend and his team will be in special Traxxas uniforms throughout the race. Nitro qualifying for the 30th annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals will begin on Friday, October 16 at 3:30 p.m.
