YORBA LINDA, CA (February 10, 2016) --- Bank of America and Merrill Lynch Financial Services hosted a luncheon event at the John Force Racing Yorba Linda headquarters yesterday in advance of the 56th annual Circle K NHRA Winternationals. The financial institutions invited employees and valuable clients to the shop for an afternoon of racing memorabilia and to hear John Force, 16-time Funny Car champion and five decade Bank of America customer, talk about NHRA drag racing and his family’s on-track and business success.
“I have been with Bank of America since I opened my first checking account in the mid-60s. Four generations of my family have banked with them over the past 50 years. They have been great business partners and I have worked with Merrill Lynch Financial Services for over 20 years. I told stories about the early days of racing and also how important having solid financial backing is on and off the track,” said Force.
After the luncheon the group met the drivers for autographs and a group photo. Force along with Robert Hight, Brittany Force and Courtney Force also led a number of clients on personal tours throughout the shop and museum.
