Brittany Force Set To Drive Advance Auto Parts Top Fuel Dragster In 2019

John Force Racing today announced that Brittany Force, the 2017 Top Fuel World Champion, will be in the driver’s seat of the Advance Auto Parts Top Fuel dragster for the 2019 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season, which kicks-off with the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals, February 8-10 at the Auto Club Raceway at Pomona in Pomona, Calif.

With her sister Courtney Force having just announced that she is stepping away from driving duties, Advance Auto Parts continues its partnership with John Force Racing by becoming the primary sponsor of Brittany Force’s Top Fuel dragster.

“I’m really excited to start this season teaming up with Advance Auto Parts,” said Brittany Force. “They’ve been such a great partner to John Force Racing the past two years. They exceeded expectations when working with Courtney, building her as their brand ambassador, and I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together. I’m looking forward to getting them their first win in a dragster and ultimately going after a championship. Off track, I look forward to creating new relationships and being involved with everything this great company has to offer.”

Brittany Force finished the 2018 season fifth in the NHRA Mello Yello points standings after a roller coaster season that started with a grisly wreck. Four races later she debuted a brand-new dragster at the SpringNationals in Houston and picked up the race win. In 2017, she became just the second female and first in 35 years to win the Top Fuel world championship.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with John Force Racing and have Brittany Force drive the Advance Auto Parts and Carquest Top Fuel Dragster in 2019,” said Yogi Jashnani, Chief Marketing Officer for Advance, which owns the Carquest brand. “Brittany represented us in eight races last season and was instrumental in launching our new advertising campaign, ‘Think Ahead. Think Advance.’ We look forward to our continued involvement in NHRA and welcoming fans to shop at www.AdvanceAutoParts.com or check out one of our more than 6,000 Advance Auto Parts and Carquest store locations throughout North America.”
