72 Nova SS Receives New Life After Autocross Event

Ridetech, a well known Jasper-based high performance auto supplier, hosted a brand new street car event appropriately named Road Trip-Cars and Cones 2016. Around one hundred thirteen drivers registered for the event which featured four autocross events in five days with a scenic cruise route which wound through North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky, ending with a dinner and after party at Ridetech's facility here in Jasper, Indiana.

Chris Rhinehart, an event participant, from Frederick Maryland, experienced engine trouble near Bowling Green, Kentucky. Rather than have his Nova towed all the way back home, Chris decided to have it towed to the Ridetech facility and purchase a JASPER engine. Chris contacted Jasper Engines & Transmissions and spoke with veteran Authentic/Performance Sales Rep. Larry Salmon, who discussed Chris' options and arranged the delivery of a JASPER Class-1 Chevrolet 350 engine on Friday.

Saturday morning at 7AM, Chris and three of his buddies began the engine exchange and and by two o'clock in the afternoon the Nova was purring and as good as new. Chris ended his weekend on a happy note with a smooth 800 mile cruise back to Maryland. We would like to thank Chris for his engine purchase and hope he enjoys his JASPER-Powered Nova at many more autocross events!

JASPER Driveline 2015 Racing

February 17, 2015:  JASPER Driveline Division Prepares for 2015 Racing Season.   A new year of racing is upon us. The Driveline Division of Jasper Engines & Transmissions looks to build upon an impressive 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. Five of the top 10 drivers in the 2014 final points standings drove cars equipped with JASPER products: Denny Hamlin finished third, Joey Logano was fourth, Brad Keselowski was fifth, Matt Kenseth was seventh and Kyle Busch was tenth.

JASPER Race Products Take Top Six Places

It was a great weekend for JASPER Race Products at Martinsville Speedway in the STP 500. Drivers running JASPER transmissions and differentials finished in the Top Six positions. Denny Hamlin, running a JASPER 4-Speed Transmission finished first. It was Hamlin's 5th win at Martinsville. Brad Keselowski, who won last week at Fontana, finished second running a JASPER Differential. 

The NASCAR xfinity Series did not run this weekend.

Vehicle Maintenance Tips

According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.

The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)

Installation of JASPER 460
