April 9, 2019
John Force Racing has hired 2011 Catawba College alumnus Justin Kamm as its Director of Corporate Partnerships. The 32-year-old will relocate to the team’s Yorba Linda, Calif., corporate headquarters from West Palm Beach, Fla., according to the company’s announcement.

“It’s important to us that we have a point person for our great sponsors and for that person to be able to create new partnerships and grow this team. We can’t do what we love to do on the race track if we don’t have their support and are able to accommodate them. Justin is a great fit for that role,” said John Force Racing CEO and driver of the PEAK Coolant and Motor Oil Chevy Camaro SS Funny Car John Force. “His experience and ability to manage high-level clients is essential. Not to mention his charisma and personality will be a great addition to the team we have taking care of things off the race track.”
Kamm had his hand in marketing initiatives, including social media, email marketing and on-site activation. In addition, he has a background of working with New Jersey Motorsports Park for five years, where he served as Director of Marketing, Events and Sales and led the marketing department in all advertising, co-marketing partnerships, promotions and social media. He also oversaw the development of effective content, creative and digital for all advertising and promotions of events, facilities and marketing partners.
