A&E Network is teaming up with Six Flags theme parks to promote its Driving Force series, which focuses on 13-time NHRA Drag Racing Champion John Force and his three drag-racing daughters.
As part of the agreement, A&E will sponsor several Six Flags rides, including Nitro, at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, N.J.; Vertical Velocity at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Ill.; Goliath, at Magic Mountain in Valencia, Calif.; Medusa at Marine World in Vallejo, Calif.; and Mind Bender at Six Flags over Georgia in Atlanta.
A&E said Force and his family will also make in-park appearances, and bring their dragsters to select Six Flags parks during the summer. Six Flags will promote the Driving Force series via trailers and promotions on its in-park television system, Six Flags TV.
