Federal-Mogul‘s #ChampionChat social media series returns Thursday Dec. 12, with a half-hour conversation via Twitter with 16-time NHRA drag racing champion John Force. Anyone can join the chat, scheduled for 10:15 a.m. E.T., by following @JFR_Racing on Twitter.com.
Sponsored by Federal-Mogul’s "Performance Driven" Champion brand of spark plugs, wipers, filters and chemical additives, the #ChampionChat series enables millions of racing fans and other consumers to connect live online with several of the biggest names in professional racing. To chat with Force during Thursday’s session, log on to Twitter and add the #ChampionChat hashtag to the end of each message.
Force is coming off another NHRA Mello Yellow Drag Racing Series championship in the Fuel Funny Car category after reaching six final rounds – winning three – in 11 events. His Castrol GTX Ford Mustang Funny Car is powered by Champion spark plugs, and the John Force Racing organization – which campaigns three Fuel Funny Cars and one Top Fuel Dragster – partners with Federal-Mogul in the development of next-generation racing plugs for nitromethane-fueled drag racing engines and other demanding applications.
"John is not only the most successful professional drag racer in history, but he’s certainly also one of the most popular. He’s got great stories about his career and can offer fascinating insights into the demands of driving a nearly 8,000-horsepower Fuel Funny Car," said Federal-Mogul Digital Marketing Manager Jessica Wynn.
