A Behind The Scenes Tour At John Force Racing

John Force Racing (JFR) rolls into every NHRA national event with an armada of rigs and an army of crew ready to do battle. It’s impressive to see the operation in action at the track, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to everything that encompasses operations at JFR.

Nitro Alley in Brownsburg, Indiana is where JFR’s main shop is located. The enormous 80,000 square-foot facility houses the entire JFR racing operation, from the rigs to the machines that make parts for each race car. There’s even a small museum on the second floor of the shop where you’ll find some rare JFR vehicles and memorabilia.

The JFR juggernaut handles nearly every aspect of building and maintaining each race car. The facility has its own fabrication and machine shops as you’d expect, but that’s just a small part of what’s under one roof at JFR. You’ll also find an anodizing room, a paint and graphics shop, dyno rooms, and the coolest parts department you’ve ever seen. Each of these areas is required to keep the JFR team rolling down the road and winning NHRA races and championships.

The video put together by the NHRA on its YouTube channel is hosted by JFR driver Austin Prock. What makes this video so cool is the fact that you get to see so many areas of the JFR operation that the general public doesn’t get access to. If you’re curious as to what it takes to run a world-class four car nitro operation, then you’ll want to check out this video.
