McKENZIE, Tenn. (June 14, 2018) – The first full week of June paid dividends to Tennessee based sprint car manufacturer J&J Auto Racing as race teams around the country posted eight victories under the brand’s familiar banner.
Sam Hafertepe, Jr., found his way into victory lane on June 8 to start the weekend of racing off in winning fashion during the American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) Speedweek event at West Texas Raceway in Lubbock, TX. The win in Hafertepe’s home state was his fifth on the season.
Daren Bolac posted the win at Dixieland Speedway in Elizabeth City, NC on June 8 to put his name on the J&J Auto Racing leaderboard. Bolac’s Virginia Sprint Series (VSS) triumph was his first of the year.
Queen of the wings, Morgan Turpen, repeated her recent winning ways against an always stout field of United Sprint Car Series (USCS) entrants by taking the checkered flag at Hattiesburg (MS) Speedway on June 8. The win was Turpen’s second in as many weeks. She was followed to the line by her teammate and co-owner, Terry Gray, in second and Marshall Skinner in fourth place.
On June 9, Jeff Halligan put win No. 3 of the season on the J&J Auto Racing leaderboard at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA. Halligan bested the United Racing Club (URC) field ahead of fellow J&J Auto Racing driver Lucas Wolfe, who finished second.
Wade Nygaard returned to the top of the leaderboard with a victory at Jamestown (ND) Speedway on June 9 against the Northern Outlaw Sprint Association contingent. The win was Nygaard’s first of 2018.
Current J&J Auto Racing win leader Donny Schatz posted his 14th win of the season in a big way at the Jackson (MN) Motorplex on June 9. Schatz’s commanding victory saw him net a $40,000 payday at the drop of the checkered flag.
Shane Morgan led a solid J&J Auto Racing contingent to the win at ECM Speedway in Bremen, AL on June 9 as he picked up a USCS victory. Morgan Turpen followed him to the line in second place, Terry Gray drove to a third-place finish and Kyle Amerson posted a solid fourth place run to leave a mark on the field.
In his fourth win in only seven events of 2018, Mike Houseman, Jr., won the IMCA RaceSaver 305ci division feature at Boone (IA) Speedway to add another tally mark behind his name on the J&J Auto Racing leaderboard.
