WELD has announced a new multi-year sponsorship agreement with John Force Racing. Norm Young, president and CEO of WELD, and John Force, CEO of John Force Racing, made the joint announcement during a news conference at the 2015 PRI Show in Indianapolis.
Force has been using WELD Racing wheel products for nearly 25 years and noted that he is grateful to WELD’s founder, Greg Weld, for recruiting him to compete with the company’s wheels.
“Nobody wanted John Force, but Greg Weld took a chance with me and I took a chance with them,” said Force of the longtime sponsorship support. “A ton of championships later and we are still winning races on WELD wheels. I am proud to say after almost 25 years the relationship will continue with new president Norm Young. We are going to reinvent the wheel.
“When I see WELD’s motivation and how they want to push new products and new ideas I feel like I was born again. I have gotten so much motivation from our meetings over the past few days that I am proud to say we are signing a multi-year sponsorship with WELD Racing to continue the legend of WELD wheels and John Force Racing.”
“This company is part of my roots like so many of my other partners. They cared about my safety from day one and now generations later my family is racing on WELD wheels,” added Force.
“John Force Racing has been at the heart of WELD for more than 20 years. We are thrilled to extend one of the most successful partnerships in motorsports and continue winning championships with John Force Racing,” added Young.
WELD Ambassadors from John Force Racing include John Force, Courtney Force, Brittany Force and Robert Hight.
