Although Robert Hight is the president of John Force Racing Inc., he’s known more for his other job – a championship-winning Funny Car driver.
In 11 seasons of competition in NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing’s Funny Car Series, Hight has 36 wins, 56 final-round visits and a 2009 championship. Over the past decade, the California native has been to more final rounds, won more races and started from the No. 1 qualifying position more than any other Funny Car driver.
Hight will drive the AAA Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car in 2016. AAA is a federation of motor clubs throughout North America that offers emergency roadside service, discounts, travel bookings and more.
Now Lionel Racing is excited to offer an Action Racing Collectables diecast of Hight’s AAA Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car. Each die-cast is highly detailed and sure to be the centerpiece of any collection.
