Local marketing firm signs deal with John Force Racing

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Just Marketing International, a Zionsville-based motorsports marketing consultancy, this month signed a three-year deal to represent one of the biggest teams on the National Hot Rod Association circuit, John Force Racing.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

It’s the first time Force, which is headquartered in Brownsburg and also has operations in California, has hired an outside firm to hunt for sponsors. It’s also a departure for Just Marketing, which normally represents sponsors, not teams and drivers. In recent years, though, Just Marketing has signed deals to represent NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon and famed NASCAR engine builder and team owner Doug Yates.

“We evaluate these types of partnerships on a case-by-case basis, and view John and his race team in the same way,” said Just Marketing Chief Operating Officer Jon Flack. “JMI specializes in connecting the right brands to the right properties, and we'll apply that same basic principle and method for John and his race team.”

Flack added that Just Marketing decided to partner with John Force Racing because it is considered a premium brand in motorsports.

The partnership comes as Force is set to lose two major sponsors—Castrol and Ford Motor Co.—after this season. Those two sponsors, industry sources said, poured about $7 million into Force’s race team this year.

Force called the loss of the two primary sponsors “a major hit.”

Force became familiar with Just Marketing through their work in motorsports and added that he is confident “they can get the job done.”

Just Marketing, Force officials said, will focus on finding primary sponsors for a car John Force drives in the funny car division and another for the car Force’s daughter, Brittany, drives in the top fuel division.

For Brittany Force’s car, Just Marketing officials said they’ll seek sponsorships with companies in the fashion and personal care sectors, and for John Force’s car, they’ll target brands trying to reach do-it-yourself consumers.

The 64-year-old patriarch of the team is a legend in drag racing. He has won 15 funny car NHRA championships since 1990. His team also has become famous for his three drag-racing daughters, Brittany, Courtney and Ashley.

Just Marketing, which was formed in 1995 by retired racer Zak Brown, represents some of the biggest sponsors in NASCAR, Formula One and the IndyCar Series. The company’s client list includes Verizon, UPS, Subway, Crown Royal and PNC Bank.

  1. Aaron is my fav!

  2. Let's see... $25M construction cost, they get $7.5M back from federal taxpayers, they're exempt from business property tax and use tax so that's about $2.5M PER YEAR they don't have to pay, permitting fees are cut in half for such projects, IPL will give them $4K under an incentive program, and under IPL's VFIT they'll be selling the power to IPL at 20 cents / kwh, nearly triple what a gas plant gets, about $6M / year for the 150-acre combined farms, and all of which is passed on to IPL customers. No jobs will be created either other than an handful of installers for a few weeks. Now here's the fun part...the panels (from CHINA) only cost about $5M on Alibaba, so where's the rest of the $25M going? Are they marking up the price to drive up the federal rebate? Indy Airport Solar Partners II LLC is owned by local firms Johnson-Melloh Solutions and Telemon Corp. They'll gross $6M / year in triple-rate power revenue, get another $12M next year from taxpayers for this new farm, on top of the $12M they got from taxpayers this year for the first farm, and have only laid out about $10-12M in materials plus installation labor for both farms combined, and $500K / year in annual land lease for both farms (est.). Over 15 years, that's over $70M net profit on a $12M investment, all from our wallets. What a boondoggle. It's time to wise up and give Thorium Energy your serious consideration. See http://energyfromthorium.com to learn more.

  3. Markus, I don't think a $2 Billion dollar surplus qualifies as saying we are out of money. Privatization does work. The government should only do what private industry can't or won't. What is proven is that any time the government tries to do something it costs more, comes in late and usually is lower quality.

  4. Some of the licenses that were added during Daniels' administration, such as requiring waiter/waitresses to be licensed to serve alcohol, are simply a way to generate revenue. At $35/server every 3 years, the state is generating millions of dollars on the backs of people who really need/want to work.

  5. I always giggle when I read comments from people complaining that a market is "too saturated" with one thing or another. What does that even mean? If someone is able to open and sustain a new business, whether you think there is room enough for them or not, more power to them. Personally, I love visiting as many of the new local breweries as possible. You do realize that most of these establishments include a dining component and therefore are pretty similar to restaurants, right? When was the last time I heard someone say "You know, I think we have too many locally owned restaurants"? Um, never...
