John Force Racing is asking all their fans to get behind Robert Hight and Brittany Force to vote them into the last spot in the 2nd annual Traxxas Shootouts. Hight, driver of the Auto Club Ford Mustang Funny Car, is asking fans to “Get It Right With Hight” and make him the eighth Funny Car driver in the specialty race to win $100,000 while rookie Top Fuel driver Brittany Force wants her fans to “Make Brittany The First In TF” in the Top Fuel Traxxas Shootout. Force is the first JFR driver to compete in Top Fuel and she would like to be the first female to compete in the Top Fuel Traxxas Shootout Labor Day weekend.
“It has been a thrill to be the first JFR driver to race Top Fuel and I want to be the first woman to take on the guys in the Top Fuel Traxxas Shootout. I have a great team and we have really been making progress lately. I love the “Make Brittany The First” campaign and I hope everyone goes to Facebook and votes for me and my Castrol EDGE Top Fuel dragster,” said Force.
Hight competed in the inaugural Traxxas Shootout last year losing in the first round to Jeff Arend in a pedalfest at the Texas Motorplex. A top ten contender and perennial championship favorite Hight is asking all his fans to “Get It Right With Hight” and vote for him this year.
“Last year I lost a close pedalfest to Jeff Arend so I think I have some unfinished business in the Traxxas Shootout. We have been close to getting a win this year and I know we can give these other Funny Cars a run for the money but I need some help from the fans to give me the best chance. I’ll get it right on the track if all our fans get it right by voting for me on Facebook,” said Hight.
Beginning August 18th after the Brainerd national event, fans can go to the NHRA’s Facebook page and vote to put Robert and Brittany into the second annual Funny Car and Top Fuel Traxxas Shootouts during the Chevrolet Performance US Nationals. Each race within a race will have a purse of $260,000 with the Top Fuel and Funny Car winner getting $100,000 each. The final spot will be awarded through a fan vote and then a lottery drawing on Wednesday, August 28th.
