YORBA LINDA, CA (December 2, 2013) --- John Force Racing announced today that they have extended their CHiPs For Kids Holiday Toy Drop-off schedule to December 23rd. Originally JFR announced that would be an official drop-off location for the CHiPs For Kids Holiday Toy Drive from December 6th – 19th but now they will be accepting toys at the Yorba Linda shop from December 6th – 23rd between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The NHRA championship Funny Car team has historically opened their Yorba Linda race shop for one day each year for his Holiday Car Show. This year newly crowned 16-time Funny Car champion John Force will open the doors of his facility for nearly two weeks at 22722 Old Canal Road, so fans can tour the shop beginning on December 6th and continuing Monday through Friday until December 23rd.
Fans will simply need to drop off a new $10 unwrapped toy. The shop and museum will be open between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. for fans to walk through and see some of the most exciting Funny Cars and Dragsters in NHRA history.
The shop will be decorated in a holiday theme and will have on display John Force’s Championship winning Castrol GTX Ford Mustang Funny Car as well as the new 2013 Mello Yello Funny Car world championship trophy. In addition to the championship hardware, Funny Cars celebrating 30 years of John Force’s career will be in display including the original Brute Force Monza, the Leo’s Stereo ‘78 Corvette Funny Car, the Mountain Dew Citation Funny Car, the Brute Force Vega which Force campaigned in Australia, and the Wendy’s Funny Car.
“We have been partners with the ChiPS For Kids Toy Drive for years and years and we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to gather as many toys as possible for the kids of Orange County and beyond. We weren’t able to do our Holiday Car Show this year but I wanted to still do something big for the kids so we are going to offer the shop tours and show our new world championship trophy. We hope everyone will still bring by a toy between December 6th through December 23rd,” said John Force.
The California Highway Patrol will announce all the CHiPS For Kids drop off locations on December 5th and John Force Racing will also list them on their website www.johnforceracing.com.
John Force wishes to thank all of his fans who have donated toys for children throughout the years and hopes everyone has a great Christmas holiday.
