John Force Racing–The Strip at Las Vegas, Robert Hight

LAS VEGAS, NV (April 6, 2013) – Today’s qualifying efforts by Robert Hight and his Auto Club Ford Mustang team brought a well-deserved No. 1 qualifier recognition to the John Force Racing stable. After a nineteen race drought Hight took the pole at the 14th annual NHRA Nationals in Las Vegas and put a front loading washer and dryer set in the hands of a lucky fan, compliments of BrandSource and the “Win With Force” promotion.

Hight posted the quickest time of the weekend on Friday night a stellar 4.053 second pass and for his efforts Becky Sloan from Tonganoxie, Kansas, is the big winner.

“We really thought this Auto Club Ford was on the turnaround at Gainesville but we had to wait two weeks to figure it out and come here and prove it. That is just a long two weeks. It has been a long nineteen races since I have been up here talking to you guys.  It has almost been that long since I won a race. I told Gary Gerald from ESPN I have qualified No. 1 her and lost first round and I have qualified No. 1 and won this race. Qualifying is over and tomorrow is a new day. I am pretty proud of my car and the way the team worked. That 4.09 in the last session was pretty stout. I believe we have a car we can race with,” said Hight.

At each NHRA national event when a JFR team qualifies No. 1 a lucky fan that has signed up at the JFR Win with Force display located in Nitro Alley will be eligible to win the BrandSource No. 1 Qualifier Award, a front loading washer and dryer set.  If a JFR driver wins the event a different fan will win the 55” flat screen TV Winner’s Circle Award from BrandSource.  At the end of the season a grand prize winner of the “Win with Force” Sweepstakes will be awarded a 2013 Castrol EDGE Ford Mustang GT premium edition.

Fans can sign up to win at the John Force Racing interactive midway display. This 53-foot trailer will be in the Nitro Alley area of every NHRA Mello Yello Series national event in 2013. The “Win with Force” promotion now includes JFR team partners Castrol, BrandSource, Ford and Mac Tools all joining together to create an incredible promotion for the fans.
