NHRA: Major sponsorship announcement for Top Fuel driver Brittany Force set for Wednesday


It’s Brittany Force’s turn now.

With father John Force and sister Courtney Force set for the next several years with sponsorship for their respective NHRA Funny Car rides, Brittany Force’s search for primary sponsorship was the next big priority at John Force Racing.

But now it appears the long search is over.

JFR will hold a national media teleconference Wednesday at 2 pm ET to announce what the team is calling a “multi-year major primary sponsorship agreement for the JFR Top Fuel dragster.”

Brittany Force is in her third full-time season in the NHRA Top Fuel ranks.

The graduate of Cal-State Fullerton, Brittany was named 2013 Auto Club Road to the Future Award winner (NHRA Rookie of the Year).

The 28-year-old Yorba Linda, Calif., native was voted Rookie of the Year for all Motorsports in 2014 by RACER magazine.

In her sophomore Top Fuel season in 2014, even though she finished runner-up each time, Brittany Force reached the final round in four races.

After the first seven races of the 24-event 2015 NHRA national schedule, Brittany Force is ranked 11th in the Top Fuel class.
