KYMCO USA has expanded their marketing partnership with the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) by adding John Force Racing team to their list of NHRA teams riding their scooters and ATVs.
KYMCO has provided John Force with a new Super 8 150cc Scooter that was presented during a special Castrol 25th Anniversary announcement at the MAC TOOLS U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis at the John Force Racing Sponsor Midway trailer. The remainder of the John Force Racing teams will also be equipped with brand new KYMCO Agility 125cc Scooters.
“I was excited to drive my brand new KYMCO Scooter,” said Force, “the fans reaction has really been great, and the fans all love the new scooter. It’s probably the color of the scooter that does it; I chose to drive the green one. Along with Castrol, we gave away my old scooter in a special 25th Anniversary promotion to Susan Porter, a lucky fan from Cumberland, Tenn. She will be driving it, but with all the Castrol logos they will know it was mine!” Force kidded. “Seriously, we’re happy to work with KYMCO now that they are the Official Sponsor of NHRA, so it made sense to work with them.”
Rick Pawelka, KYMCO director of marketing, added, “We are happy to further extend our involvement in NHRA Drag Racing by incorporating the John Force Racing team in our product utilization. We have seen the exposure that John Force and his team (and scooters) get at the track and it only makes sense to work along with them.”
