John Force Road Show to make splash at Indy 500  In January John Force announced he was going to take a page from the PT Barnum book on promotion and start spreading the gospel about the Full Throttle Drag Racing Series as well as other major forms of motorsports. This weekend Force will have his John Force Road Show on display at The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the 100th annual Indianapolis 500. The John Force Road Show will be open during normal spectator viewing times and will be positioned at the corner of 12th Avenue and Georgetown across from The Speedway Administration building.

“I have never been to the Indy 500 but I know it is unbelievable. I can’t wait to get to The Speedway and check it out,” said Force, a 15-time Full Throttle NHRA Funny Car champion. “We’ll have our John Force Road Show right beside the race track talking about all kinds of motorsports. People want and need to be entertained in these tough economic times and there isn’t anything more entertaining than two race cars racing down a drag strip or going three-wide into turn four.”

“The John Force Road Show is about educating people about all forms of racing. I know drag racing, of course, and we are reaching out to all our friends in NASCAR and Indy Car to have them provide us with photos, videos and interviews so when we go to malls, airports, state fairs or wherever, people see all sort of information about racing. I want people to walk away the John Force Road Show excited about going to a race the next time they see a commercial on TV or ad in the newspaper.”

The John Force Road Show will consist of two 18-wheelers with dual side awnings. Under the “big tops” will be a variety of John Force Racing Funny Cars as well as video screens showing race footage. Plans are in the works to add representative race cars from NASCAR and Indy Car.
