YORBA LINDA, CA (November 11, 2009) --- The home shop and museum of 14-time NHRA Funny Car champion John Force will be open on Thursday (Nov. 12) and Friday (Nov. 13) from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. The John Force Racing Museum is filled with trophies, race cars, memorabilia and hundreds of photos spanning the thirty year career of John Force as well as all his drivers including points leader Robert Hight, 2008 rookie of the year Mike Neff, daughters Ashley Force Hood, Brittany Force and Courtney Force.
Fans will also be able to see the John Force Racing shop during this midday opportunity. While the teams will be busy at Auto Club Raceway qualifying for the 45th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals fans can see behind the scenes where Force’s stable of Mustangs are worked on when they travel to the West Coast.
“This is a great chance for our fans to stop by and see some of John’s great memorabilia, winning race cars including Robert Hight’s LA Dodgers Mustang from last season and unbelievable photographs. We really only open the shop and museum to the general public a couple times a year. Fans can spend a couple of hours here and then head to the racetrack and see great racing action,” said Craig Hoelzel, manager of the JFR RaceStation.
The John Force Racing shop is located at 22722 Old Canal Road, Yorba Linda, Calif., 92887, (714) 921-1651.
