John Force Racing Picks Freightliner

Freightliner Trucks recently presented John Force, legendary Funny Car driver and chief executive officer of John Force Racing, with the keys to the team’s first Freightliner
Cascadia hauler. Freightliner Trucks is an official sponsor of John
Force Racing, the John Force Travelin’ Road Show and the John Force
Racing Sponsorship Midway program.

John Force Racing’s new Cascadia raised-roof sleeper is equipped with
a Detroit DD15 engine and Detroit axles. The 17-time National Hot Rod
Association (NHRA) Funny Car championship team will use its Cascadia
hauler to transport equipment to races and events throughout the United
States. Ultimately, the team’s entire fleet will be comprised of
DD15-equipped Cascadia trucks.

“We are all over the country racing and doing Road Shows, so I want
my team to have a safe and comfortable ride. There’s nothing better out
there than our new Cascadia trucks,” said Force. “The trucks we are
getting today are great, and the opportunities down the road are
unbelievable. With Freightliner Trucks, John Force Racing has a winning
combination off the track just like we have success on the track.”

The key ceremony – which took place at the Freightliner Trucks
Cleveland, N.C., manufacturing facility – featured several John Force
Racing team drivers, including Robert Hight, Mike Neff, Brittany Force,
Courtney Force and Ashley Force Hood. The team toured the plant and
visited with Freightliner employees.

“Because John Force started his career as a truck driver, he not only
understands the benefits of a driver-friendly and efficient vehicle
like the Cascadia, but he truly connects with our core audience,” said
TJ Reed, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “We are
proud of our partnership with John Force Racing, and are looking forward
to an exciting season.”
