PEAK/Realtree Funny Car Takes 2 out of 3 on NHRA Western Swing

By author of The Realblog with Stephanie Mallory

Legendary funny car driver John Force has been burning up the track in his PEAK Antifreeze & Coolant car, which in recent weeks has been clad in Realtree Xtra® camo. PEAK planned to run the Realtree car only once – at the Mile High Nationals in Denver  – which Force won impressively. The following week in Sonoma, Force was back in his familiar blue-colored PEAK car, but after that car’s body suffered a stress fracture, Force’s team asked PEAK Marketing if they could use the Realtree body for the remainder of the event. The answer was yes and the result was another win for Force in the PEAK/Realtree Chevy.

Of course, with Force and his team feeling good about the PEAK/Realtree car, they ran it a third straight week – this time at the NHRA Northwest Nationals in Seattle. Unfortunately, in record-setting racing with the fastest side-by-side times ever recorded in NHRA history, Force came up just short in Seattle. Still, Force and his team have confidence in the Realtree car, so hopefully fans will see it again this season.

“All of us at Realtree truly appreciate PEAK using our Realtree pattern on John Force’s funny car, firesuit, and team uniforms in recent races,” said Realtree Designer and President Bill Jordan. “John is a true legend in the motorsports world, and we feel honored to be part of his record-setting victories. Realtree is also proud to be partnered with PEAK, plus there’s more to this PEAK/Realtree car than just racing. Very soon PEAK will announce an awesome new promotion for their customers, so be sure an be on the lookout for that.”
