One Race To Go - John Force Racing In the Hunt for Championships

Gates - Wed, 11/01/2017 - 13:23
With one race remaining in the NHRA season, John Force Racing is in position to compete for the season points championship in both the Top Fuel and Funny Car classes.

Brittany Force, driver of the Monster Energy Top Fuel dragster, is in second place - only 20 points behind the class leader.  That is less than 1 round of racing.  If Force wins 1 round more than the current points leader, she will take the season championship.

Robert Hight, driver of the AAA Funny Car, goes into the final race in Pomona, CA, with a 15 point lead over the second place team.  If Hight wins the same or more rounds of racing in the final race of the season compared to the second place team, he takes home the season points championship.

Join us in watching the drama unfold in the final race of the season, following the Gates sponsored John Force Racing teams.

Underwater Belt Applications

Gates - Wed, 11/01/2017 - 13:20
Have an underwater drive application and don't know what belt to use?

A good option for both fresh and salt water environments would be the Gates Poly Chain GT Carbon belt.

The Polyurethane in these belts assist in its ability to withstand the submersion, and is more resistant to wear and swelling than the standard rubber belts.

If you are designing for a drive underwater, there are a few things to adhere to; Mainly:

  1. Use non-corrosive/anti-rust metals (i.e. stainless steel)
  2. Do not exceed 10,000 feet of water depth
  3. Do not exceed 4,400 psi of water pressure
If you have any questions regarding using belts underwater, or any questions in general, you can reach us at 303-744-5800 or
