JEGS News, Speed Snippets, Twitter Roll and Sponsor Reports

The JEGS high performance parts organization is all about speed and anyone wanting to know about that need only click on JEGS.com.

This complex page is about many angles of JEGS, ranging from their habitual racing efforts to standard articles written by Dwight Drum and more.

It's a big take. This page and linking pages are all about more. More quotes from JEGS racers, the family that has over 50 years of speed--more information about racing events too—more shared moments.

These pages are all about big yellow and black, JEGS, and the fans and customers that make it all go fast.

This page is about social media too, Facebook.com and Twitter.com. It’s all here in a condensed way with content and links.

It's about more company culture too. JEGS is a family owned firm and their many associates are considered family too.

The JEGS motto >> Track Tested, We Race What We Sell >> probably means a lot in thought to an average customer, but at JEGS no customer is average. Every customer is tops.

JEGS is way more in many ways.

JEGS NASCAR Contingency Sponsor Reports
Tony Stewart

B106 [Jg11smok1fb] [No. 14 smoke]

JEGS view: Smoke may not need to be on fire to win, but Tony “Smoke” Stewart started hot the NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup by winning twice. He fell short in the third playoff race, but has seven more to go.

This Smoke image shot was for JEGS in Darlington while in line for practice laps. The JEGS NASCAR contingency decal waited on the No. 14 fender while Smoke plugged in his ear gear.


Kyle Busch

B108 [jg11kyle18fb]

JEGS view: Kyle Busch typically tosses patience to the wind when racing on the edge. Yet, he got married on the last day of 2010 to Samantha, and matured some on track also. His patience logged four Sprint Cup wins and another Chase spot.

Along the way Busch has carried the JEGS contingency decal on his No. 18 Chevrolet. TeamJEGS knows about winning too. JEGS has been on many a fast turn.


Carl Edwards

B107 jg11carl99fb [No. 99 infield shot]

JEGS view: Carl Edwards could win it all in 2011. His latest Sprint Cup challenge was at Dover where a pit road violation put him at the rear, but didn’t keep him from third place.

Photographer David Yeazell for Racetake.com snapped a shot of the No. 99 after he won at Charlotte and tore up his car on infield turf. The JEGS NASCAR contingency decal was along for the win—and survived.
