JFR AND SIMPSON PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS EXTEND SPONSORSHIP THROUGH 2018

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2015

BROWNSBURG, IND – At the conclusion of the PRI Show in Indianapolis John Force Racing and Simpson Performance Products agreed to extend their sponsorship through the 2018 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season. John Force Racing has been protected by Simpson Performance Products for over four decades and three generations of racers.

"I have a long history with Simpson Performance Products. I have enjoyed working with (Simpson Performance Products CEO) Chuck Davies over the past few years because if he says he will do something he gets it done. When you put your family, your drivers or anybody into a race car at over 300 mph you better know that you are getting quality and you better know you can trust the people that made your safety equipment," said 16-time NHRA Funny Car champion John Force.

"I have been in crashes and on fire from here to Australia and I am telling you that I know what is in the cockpit of my race car and I believe 100% that it will keep me safe. That is why I wear Simpson Performance Products. Racing is a game of money and you have to watch budgets but when it comes to safety you spare no expense. We wear Simpson Performance Products from our helmets to fire suits to boots and gloves because it keeps us safe and gives me peace of mind," added Force.

The drivers of John Force Racing reveal their new Simpson Performance Products 2016 fire suits and helmets at the historic NHRA Circle K Winternationals, February 11-14 at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona.
