Gates Poly Chain belts are used to power the superchargers in the Top Fuel and Funny Car categories in the NHRA.  The blower belt is subjected to loads of over 1000 HP, and explosive and damaging torque reversals in every run.   Gates belts have been used for decades, and lead the way with new technology for the application.

Gates sponsors John Force Racing, the legendary team led by John Force.   The most recent race, the Lucas Oil Nationals in Brainerd, MN saw strong performances by all of the team's cars, but in particular a win in the Top Fuel category by Brittany Force driving the Monster Energy Top Fuel Car.  Brittany made it through a tough field to beat 2 time Top Fuel champion Antron Brown in the final round.

The win is Brittany's third of the 2016 season, placing her 4th place for the season in points.

Gates is proud to sponsor John Force Racing in their chase for the title!
