JEGS To Back CRS Through 2015


DELAWARE, Ohio — JEGS will extend its partnership with the Championship Racing Series through the 2015 circle-track season.

John Coughlin, the son of JEGS founder Jeg Coughlin, made the announcement to the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour drivers at the season-opening race at Plymouth Speedway last weekend.

“We love what the series has to offer to drivers and teams, and it’s a perfect match for us,” Coughlin said. “JEGS has been involved in drag racing for many years, and we recently decided to venture into oval-track racing. The JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour is crucial to that endeavor, and we look forward to many years together.”

The JEGS/CRA All-Stars tour presented by GM Performance Parts is a Midwest-based touring series featuring late model stock cars using crate engines. The series features 14 races at 12 tracks, including the famed Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis and Winchester Speedway in Indiana.

“We really appreciate JEGS extending their commitment to CRA through the 2015 season,” series director Glenn Luckett said. “Everyone at JEGS has been great to work with. We could not have even started this series without their great support and with their continued support this series will continue to grow and be the premier crate late model series in the country.”
