The NHRA season is racing to its conclusion, with 4 races left in the 2013 Countdown to the Championship. Gates is proud to sponsor John Force Racing and Don Schumacher Racing. Gates Poly Chain belts are used in the Top Fuel and Funny Car classes to drive the supercharger. The supercharger application is harsh and demanding, with high speeds, extreme HP requirements, and severe torque reversals. The Poly Chain belt is the only belt that can handle the highly destructive application. With only 4 races left, culminating in the final race on November 7-10 in Pomona, CA, the Gates sponsored cars and their teams are shaking out in their chase for the 2013 season championship. Top Fuel Spencer Massey (Don Schumacher Racing) Currently 1st Place Tony Schumacher (Don Schumacher Racing) Currently 5th Place Anton Brown (Don Schumacher Racing) Currently 8th Place Funny Car Matt Hagan (Don Schumacher Racing) Currently 1st Place Robert Hight (John Force Racing) Currently 3rd Place John Force (John Force Racing) Currently 4th Place Jack Beckman (Don Schumacher Racing) Currently 5th Place Ron Capps (Don Schumacher Racing) Currently 6th Place Johnny Gray (Don Schumacher Racing) Currently 7th Place Courtney Force (John Force Racing) Currently 8th Place
