PRLog - Jan. 19, 2012 - BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- Joiner Race Cars (JRC) is proud to announce plans to expand JRC’s West Coast racing operations in 2012. The new expansion plans include the addition of the new JRC Gen-I chassis line up, a multi-car effort in the SRL Southwest Tour, and a new NASCAR K&N Pro Series driver development program.

JRC has made an exclusive agreement with Victory Circle Race Cars who will serve as the manufacturer and retailer of the all new JRC Gen-I chassis line-up. The new line of chassis will include a popular “straight rail” version of the Gen-I truck arm design for 2012.
“JRC has a long and successful history of working with Victory Circle Race Cars, and we felt that their first class facilities and experience in chassis fabrication offered us an opportunity to expand our chassis development efforts, while maintaining our commitment to quality and performance,”
JRC will utilize the information and data gathered during the design and testing of the Gen-I perimeter chassis to turn its focus to the design and construction of an all new straight-rail version of the Gen-I truck arm chassis. This new chassis will be offered for use in other late model racing series throughout the U.S.
In a separate growth move, JRC will begin its first season of NASCAR K&N Pro Series driver development in partnership with Steven Blakesley of Blakesley Sports Media. Blakesley will spearhead the program as Director of Driver Development and his PR firm will be the firm of record for both the SRL and NASCAR K&N programs in 2012.
Blakesley has nearly 10 years of racing experience to bring to the table and will administer most of the off-track responsibilities for JRC in promotions and marketing. JRC is already seeing intense interest from funded drivers in the driver development program with Jacob Gomes recently announcing he will run for the team in a full-time SRL and part-time K&N schedule in 2012.
JRC’s continued growth of the existing SRL program will be enhanced by its strong association between co-owner, Junior Joiner, and Thorsport Racing. “We saw major gains in our racing program in 2011, and those gains were closely tied to my involvement with the Thorsport Racing program,” Joiner said. “I look forward to even more gains in our JRC chassis and technical program in 2012. We are fortunate to have the team to take advantage of these opportunities and the drivers who can put these gains into practice on the track.”
