McKENZIE, Tenn. (September 20, 2017) – J&J Auto Racing teams continue to rise to the occasion as they picked up another track championship and four victories in winged sprint car racing action around the country last week. With the latest set of wins, the McKenzie, Tenn., based manufacturer is nearing the 200 mark on the 2017 season.

Doug Zimmerman led the charge as he picked up the championship hardware at Butler (Mich.) Motor Speedway to cap off a fantastic season on September 9th. Winning the title by a margin of 32 points, Zimmerman also picked up six (6) victories at the facility this season.

Doug Hammaker won his fifth feature event of the year on Sept. 15 at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., against an always stout field of 358ci winged sprint car competitors. We at J&J Auto Racing wish him a speedy recovery following a racing related accident at Lincoln (Pa.) Speedway on Sept. 16.
