John Force Racing announced today they have expanded their partnership with Cornwell Quality Tools as the Official Tool of John Force Racing with a primary sponsorship of Robert Hight’s Chevrolet Camaro Funny Car during the 2023 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series season.
In addition to seeing the Cornwell Quality Tools name and logo on all the John Force Racing hot rods throughout the 2023 season, Hight will also race the Cornwell Tools / AAA Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car at 11 of the 21 NHRA Nationals events. The Cornwell Tools livery will debut at the NHRA Route 66 NHRA Nationals presented by PEAK at Route 66 Raceway May 19-21.
“Cornwell Quality Tools has been an amazing member of the John Force Racing family. Having them step up and invest even more into the relationship is a testament to that. I’m extremely honored and excited to represent Cornwell Tools and their family of franchises,” said Hight, who is also the President of John Force Racing. “Cornwell Tools is a perfect partner for me personally because I was a former crew guy. I know tools and Cornwell Tools are the best that John Force Racing has ever used. If we ever get into a bind between rounds, I will grab some Cornwell Tools and go to work alongside my guys. I’m looking forward to what we can accomplish this year together.”
“Cornwell Quality Tools has had a fantastic partnership with the John Force Racing team, and we are extremely excited and thrilled to continue to grow our relationship, now as a primary sponsor of the 3-time NHRA Funny Car Champion Robert Hight,” said Bob Studenic, President and CEO of Cornwell Quality Tools. “The Robert Hight primary sponsorship will continue to move the Cornwell Tools business forward, to achieve greater brand awareness and drive franchise engagement. Robert has been a true champion for JFR, and he has been a great supporter of the Cornwell Tools family. We cannot wait for the start of another fast-paced and successful NHRA race season.”
In addition to debuting at the Route 66 NHRA Nationals, Hight will pilot the Cornwell Tools Chevy Funny Car at the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals in Bristol, Tenn., a stint of eight straight races from the Dodge Power Brokers NHRA Mile-High Nationals in Denver through to the NHRA Carolina Nationals and finally the NHRA Nevada Nationals.
