J&J Auto Racing Teams Nab Ten Wins: Morgan Turpen Crowned USCS Speedweek Champion

McKENZIE, Tenn. (June 7, 2018) – The early days of June could easily be mistaken for those of July as J&J Auto Racing teams wasted little time in putting wins on the leaderboard in sprint car racing. In only two days and some change, teams competing under the McKenzie, Tenn., manufacturer’s banner won ten races in eight states.

Morgan Turpen’s consistency saw her crowned the United Speed Contest Sanction (USCS) Speedweek Champion on June 2 following a solid week of racing. Turpen’s efforts were recognized at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, AR.

Kicking-off the weekend for J&J Auto Racing was Derek Hagar’s United Speed Contest Sanction (USCS) victory at Magnolia Speedway in Columbus, MS. The win was Hagar’s second of the 2018 season. He was followed to the line by Tony Stewart who finished third.

Across numerous states and a time zone, Doug Hammaker also posted a win on June 1 at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA. Hammaker’s triumph was his first of the season.

Ohio’s Cap Henry drove to a win in his home state at Attica Raceway Park on June 1 to put his name on the J&J Auto Racing leaderboard.

June 2 brought another wave of victories for J&J Auto Racing as Washington native Trey Starks commanded the win at Port Royal (PA) Speedway in the 410ci division. Brock Zearfoss followed Starks to the finish in fourth place.

Clint Garner returned to his winning ways on June 2 at the legendary Knoxville (IA) Raceway. The reigning 360ci Knoxville Nationals champion took the win over fellow J&J Auto Racing driver, Matt Moro, who finished second. Calvin Landis also picked up a 10th place finish.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr., won his fourth feature event of the year at Tri-State Speedway in Pocola, OK on June 2 against an always-stout American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) Red River division field.

Brayden Gaylord was victorious at 34 Raceway in West Burlington, IA on June second as he claimed the IMCA RaceSaver 305ci division feature event to post his third win of the season.

Steve Surniak won the Carolina No Bull Series feature event at Friendship Speedway in Elkin, NC on June 2 to wrap up an exceptional weekend of racing.

Stenhouse Jr. - Marshall Racing’s Sheldon Haudenschild scored his fourth World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series win of the 2018 season at Fairbury (IL) Speedway on June 5 to help J&J Auto Racing hit a perfect 10.
