NORWALK, OH (August 13, 2015) — John Force and Courtney Force will headline a group of six Nitro Funny Cars that will participate in the ultimate fan experience the iconic Night Under Fire at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio, this Saturday. John Force will be racing his all-white Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car and Courtney will be campaigning her Traxxas Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car.

The Forces and the four other Funny Car competitors will make two runs with the first round acting as qualifying and the second round eliminations. The format will highlight No. 6 v. No. 5, No. 4 v. No. 3, and No. 2 v. No. 1 battling for the title of Night Under Fire Champion.

“I can’t wait to get to Night Under Fire this weekend along with my dad and some of the other NHRA drivers to put on a fun show for the fans! This race is a spectacle every year and the Baders always do a great job putting it on and really getting the fans excited and involved. I raced here a few years back and as a kid always watched my dad run here so I can’t wait to get back on track. It’s unlike any other race and it’s all in one night. I’m also excited because this gives my team a chance to get it ready for the upcoming race in Brainerd,” said Courtney Force, a past Night Under Fire Champion.

Among the longstanding traditions at Summit Motorsports Park are the explosive and encompassing fireworks offered at the conclusion of the show. Fireworks are ignited from multiple locations for improved impact, and in red, white, blue and other colors, they dance to carefully-choreographed patriotic music that is both inspired and inspiring. Designed to be dramatic as well as delightful, they’re known to be far grander than those of neighboring cities, and just when it appears that the last of them has been seen, heard and felt, gas bombs reverberate throughout the facility, leaving fans flabbergasted. The nearly fifteen minute spectacle costs $100,000 to produce and leaves no wonder as to why it’s now famed and fabled.

“Bader puts on a great show for Night Under Fire. I have been coming here for years and years and I love the whole show. It is great that I’ll be racing Courtney and Cruz (Pedregon) and (Matt) Hagan plus (Dale) Creasy and (Jack) Wyatt. We will put on a great show. I love seeing all the fans every year,” said John Force, the winning driver in NHRA history.
