JEGS is Excited to Continue to Power all of CRA Through the 2022 Season


Salem, IN (August 4, 2020) – Champion Racing Association (CRA) Powered by JEGS officials and JEGS have announced that JEGS is excited to continue their support of CRA through the 2022 racing season, with an option to extend the agreement through the 2023 season. The extension agreement includes their title sponsorship of the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance. CRA will continue to be known as CRA Powered by JEGS and will include the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS, the Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman Powered by JEGS, the Van Hoy Oil CRA Street Stocks Powered by JEGS and the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models Powered by JEGS. All the CRA logos will continue to be branded with the “Powered by JEGS” through the extension.


“We have really enjoyed the relationship we have built with everyone at CRA over the past 10 years,” remarked Coughlin. “CRA does a remarkable job with all five of their racing series, they are the best at what they do, and we pride ourselves on being the best at what we do. We look forward to continuing to build relationships with all the competitors and fans of CRA!”


The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour, the premier touring asphalt crate engine late model series in the country, is currently competing in its tenth season since starting in 2011, when current NASCAR Cup Series competitor Erik Jones won the inaugural Championship. Fellow NASCAR competitor Daniel Hemric won the Championship in 2012, Cody Coughlin in 2013 and in 2016, Dan Leeck in 2014 and 2019, Car Owner Champion Bill Burba and Driver Champion Dalton Armstrong in 2015 and Jack Dossey III in 2017 and 2018.


The ARCA/CRA Super Series, one of the premier Template Super Late Model Touring Series in the country, is currently competing in its 24th season of competition, since its first event in 1997. The Van Hoy Oil CRA Street Stocks are in their 16th season of competition, the Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman are in their 15th season of competition and the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models are in their second season of competition.


“JEGS has been a huge supporter of CRA and all of short track racing,” remarked R.J. Scott, Managing Partner with CRA. “Great sponsors like JEGS are very special for everyone. Not only do they support the racers, but sell great parts at great prices...a true friend of the racers.”


For more than 60 years, the name JEGS has been synonymous with high performance racing parts, dating back to 1960 when Jeg Coughlin Sr. opened the doors of JEGS High Performance at a small, non-descript shop in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Little did he know at the time, but Coughlin was on the precipice of something great. Limited by his Midwest location and unable to find the parts he needed to produce the desired level of performance in his own hot rods, the speed hound searched far and wide to unearth what he was looking for -- the very best parts in the country. Dedicated legwork and ingenuity quickly established Coughlin as the go-to guy for high performance parts in Central Ohio, and what began simply as building and tweaking engines for buddies soon became a full-fledged retail business.


Three decades and counting after Coughlin's original speed shop was born, he helped his four sons, John, Troy, Mike, and Jeg Jr., purchase the operation, and under their collective guidance the small family business became a mail order giant. The original 4,000 square-foot shop now encompasses a 250,000 square-foot warehouse, a chassis shop, a call center, and the original retail store on the very grounds where it all began. A second store and two additional call centers are also located in the metropolitan Columbus area. In the early 2000's, JEGS took the next leap forward for the business. The 85,000 square foot warehouse was kept as a retail store, and a new 225,000 square foot warehouse and corporate headquarters were built in Delaware, Ohio. JEGS now employs more than 350 associates yet maintains the founding company culture of a small, family-run speed shop that continues to preserve a one-on-one relationship with each customer.

Sunday’s Kil-Kare Raceway Oval Event Cancelled Due to Increased Covid-19 Restrictions Enforcement


Salem, IN (July 30, 2020) – With the recent decisions by the Ohio Governor regarding Covid-19 restrictions, fairs and speedways across the state have been hit with a ban on spectator events by local health agencies. While the Kil-Kare drag strip can go mainly unaffected because a majority of the events are participant driven, racing on the oval is largely dependent on spectator revenues to pay the purses to the participants.  With restrictions on the number of fans, there was no way to fulfill the financial obligations to the participants, and thus the August 2nd event has been canceled.  The Kil-Kare oval event on Sunday was a partnership between Champion Racing Association, Vores Compact Touring Series and Shadybowl Speedway.  Officials have vowed to work with the management of Kil-Kare to review future rescheduling options should the Covid-19 restrictions change significantly.

Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models Back in Action at Kil-Kare Raceway Sunday

Salem, Indiana (July 28, 2020): The Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models will continue their 2020 season with their third event of the season, this Sunday at Kil-Kare Raceway, located just outside of Xenia, Ohio. The COVID-19 pandemic caused several Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models events to be postponed or cancelled, CRA officials continue to work with track promoters in trying to reschedule some of those events. Sunday’s event will be the first ever series event on the 3/8’s mile track at Kil-Kare Raceway.

The Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models was a new racing series in 2019 to focus on a youth movement for short track stock car racing that saw 10 to 15-year-old drivers compete amongst themselves for both experience and recognition in full size late models with an economical drive train and suspension alternatives. Chase Burda was the inaugural series Champion in 2019, he has now moved up to compete with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour in 2020.

Some of the key components for the rule package for the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models will be the mandated use of the $3900 factory sealed Chevrolet Performance 602 crate engine. Teams will also be utilizing less expensive rear ends, transmissions and springs and spec KONI Shocks. The series will also be racing on 8-inch steel wheels and utilizing 8-inch Hoosier Racing tires. The series will compete on 3/8 mile and under racetracks with most events consisting of 8 lap heat races and a 25-lap feature.

14-year-old VanDoorn Racing Development Registered Rookie Jordon Riddick picked up the win in the series season opener at Anderson Speedway on June 13th. It was Riddick’s first ever late model race. 13-year-old second year series competitor Katie Hettinger got her first series win in the series second event of the season on July 11th at the Indianapolis Speedrome. Hettinger passed for the lead on lap four and led the final 26 laps to get the commanding win by just over six seconds. 

Hettinger comes into Sunday’s event as the series points leader. 12-year-old Zack Wilhelm is in second, nine points behind Hettinger. 14-year-old Evan Varney is in third place, he is one point behind Wilhelm. Riddick is in fourth place, he is two points behind Varney. 13-year-old series rookie Nash Engdahl is in fifth place, he is three points behind Riddick.

There is an open practice at Kil-Kare Raceway on Thursday, July 30th pits open at 5pm, open practice will go until dark. Pits open on Sunday at 11:30am. Practice will begin at 1pm. MPM Marketing Qualifying will begin at 3:45pm for the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models. Racing action will begin at 5pm and with a special 30-lap feature event for the Victory Custom Trailers CRA Junior Late Models. Also racing that evening will be the Vore’s Welding CRA late Model Sportsman with a 75 lap feature, the Van Hoy Oil CRA Street Stocks in a 75 lap feature, the Vore’s Compact Touring Series with a 30 lap feature and a Compact/FWD 100 lap Enduro feature capping off the racing.

Majeski Goes Back-to Back in the Gandrud Auto Group Dixieland 250


Four-time ARCA Midwest Tour champion and now NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series rookie Ty Majeski returned to Wisconsin and defended his Gandrud Auto Group 250 victory in front of a large crowd on Tuesday night at Wisconsin International Raceway in Buchanan, Wisconsin.

The Seymour, Wisconsin native drove his famous #91 to his second straight victory by holding off former NASCAR Canadian Tour Champion Cayden Lapcevich by 1.283 seconds. 

Paul Shafer Jr. came back for another podium finish to round out the top three. Austin Nason and defending ARCA Midwest Tour Champion Casey Johnson rounded out the top five. 

Defending NASCAR Cup Series Champion Kyle Busch finished sixth as he had a spirited battle with Johnson in the closing laps of the race.

Majeski, who was also the fast qualifier, started 13th after the invert for the main event. It only took him 45 laps before put his car at the top of the leaderboard. He would give up the lead on lap 68 for a pit stop and regain the top spot on a restart on lap 101. 

He would continue to lead until a caution flew on lap 154 for a multi-car spin in turn four. He would come down to pit road along with all but four cars for the a final controlled pit stop and make a final adjustment for the run to the checkered flag. 

It was on a restart on lap 205, when Majeski would battle the lead away from Shafer and hold him off again on a final restart on lap 214 to drive away to his second straight victory in the prestigious event that paid $10,000 to the winner. 

“Everything went basically to plan,” Majeski said in victory lane. “We caught the cautions at the right times. We had a game plan going into the race and didn’t have to use much of the race car coming up through the field.”

Lapcevich was very satisfied with his second place run. 

“We got a good group of guys here. We got good equipment and we had everything we needed to run good,” Lapcevich said. “I struggled to put runs together lately, and I think we did everything right here tonight. We maintained our track position, and it was really tough to pass, so that was big.”

Shafer was hoping to have something for Majeski. Even though he finished third, he was satisfied with his podium finish.

“Anytime I get a chance to be next to the 91 or start alongside him on the front row, I’m going to make it happen. I am going to give it hell and see what happens,” Shafer exclaimed. “We have run third three times here, and here we are again. We want to win, but third is not that bad.”

Larry Detjens Memorial winner Justin Mondeik rebounded from an earlier spin to finish seventh with Redbud 400 winner Carson Hocevar finishing eighth. 

Former Dixieland 250 winner Dennis Prunty was ninth, and Maxwell Schultz finished 10th. 

Schultz also won the last chance race.

The ARCA Midwest Tour will be back in action on Saturday, August 22nd for the rescheduled Wayne Carter Classic presented by Rod Baker Ford and Illinois Truck & Equipment on Saturday, August 22nd.
