Kernersville, N.C. (February 8, 2011) – Kevin Harvick Inc. (KHI) and JEGS Mail Order announced today the continuation of their full-time partnership which began last season. JEGS Mail Order will once again be the primary sponsor on the No. 2 Chevrolet for KHI co-owner Kevin Harvick in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on September 24.
“JEGS has a deep history in motorsports, from Coughlin family members being racers themselves to various partnerships throughout NASCAR,” said Harvick. “The fans were really excited to see the JEGS No. 2 Chevrolet truck race around the track at New Hampshire last year, so we are very happy to continue this partnership and we’d love nothing more than to take them into victory lane in September.”
“JEGS is excited to continue our involvement with KHI. Kevin, DeLana and the team at KHI is committed to excellence on and off the track,” said John Coughlin, Vice President and one of the four Coughlin brothers that own and operate JEGS. “Kevin will once again drive the JEGS.com truck with our familiar yellow and black colors in New Hampshire and that’s exciting. Last year was our first year having a JEGS branded vehicle in NASCAR competition and it was exciting for our loyal JEGS customers worldwide to see.”
In 1960, Jeg Coughlin Sr. founded JEGS as a small speed shop. It has grown into a high-performance powerhouse that includes a race team (Team JEGS), 250,000 square foot warehouse, two retail stores, mail order and website. The 350+ employees at JEGS still strongly believe and practice their simple business philosophy: Customer Care is #1.
