McKENZIE, Tenn. (November 15, 2017) – J&J Auto Racing teams added two Sprint Car titles to it’s 2017 records and a win in Florida to wrap up another busy weekend of racing in the United States.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr., locked up the 2017 American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) National Series championship at Cocopah Speedway in Yuma, AZ, to put a cherry on the top of a stellar racing season. Hafertepe, Jr., has won 16 feature events across the country in J&J Auto Racing entries to wrap-up his second straight ASCS Series triumph.

Michael Thomas took home the hardware in the 358ci Winged Sprint Car division at Selinsgrove (PA) Speedway to end a solid season in an always tough Pennsylvania racing environment.

Trey Starks drove to victory lane at Bubba Raceway Park (BRP) in Ocala, FL, on November 11 to pick-up his third win the season behind the wheel of a J&J Auto Racing machine this season. Starks held off a stout field of United Sprint Car Series (USCS) entries to take the checkered flag.
