Team Update – Winning Wednesday

Posted on Posted in At the Track, Race Results

It has definitely been a busy week last week for the JConcepts team with team drivers bringing home wins all throughout the nation. From a definitive statement at the Summer INS with many of our drivers making podiums and taking class wins like Defatte, Stoub, Layton, Hobbs, and Cavalieri. While the INS was happening, the rest of the team was also doing work too. Here was last week’s action-packed week of racing results as this Winning Wednesday is a tribute to them…. Simply outstanding!!
