BROWNSBURG, Ind. — John Force Racing has announced a partnership between the 18-time champion NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series team and Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies.
Parker Hannifin’s ParkerStore will adorn JFR’s three Funny Cars, as well as its Top Fuel dragster, as an associate sponsor for the remainder of the 2017 season.

“We’re really looking forward to being involved with John Force Racing,” Parker Director of Global Distribution and Sales Services Brad Fischer said. “John and his team have a long history as the premier team in NHRA and they afford us a great opportunity for Parker to engage with fans of the sport.”
ParkerStore will adorn John Force’s PEAK Coolant and Motor Oil Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car, Robert Hight’s Auto Club of Southern California Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car, Courtney Force’s Advance Auto Parts Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car and Brittany Force’s Monster Energy Top Fuel dragster.
“We’re thrilled to have ParkerStore on all our cars,” 16-time Funny Car champion John Force said. “They’re a great company and join a long list of companies we’ve been able to partner with. We hope to show them what our team and the sport of drag racing can do for them, and we hope to have them in the winner’s circle soon.”
