July 18 race at GMP to be JEGS Pro Late Model 50

By staff
JEFFERSON -- In May, Gresham Motorsports Park announced a new partnership with JEGS and the Coughlin family. GMP is excited to announce that JEGS is amping up the partnership and sponsoring the Wednesday night Pro Late Model race event on July 18.

"Jegs is excited to be part of circle track racing, especially any race at Gresham Motorsports Park. GMP is one of the nicest facilities in the U.S.," said John Coughlin, the son of JEGS founder Jeg Coughlin.

A good portion of the decades of success for JEGS can be attributed to the quality of products they offer, and the knowledgeable associates identify firsthand with what they are selling the customer because they use those same parts themselves.

July 18th will be an action packed night of racing to break up the usual mundane week! Sportsman, Renegades, Mini Stocks, Trucks and Outlaw Late Models will compete before the JEGS Pro Late Models 50 takes the green flag for bumper to bumper racing action.

"The Wednesday night races are a fan-favorite because it breaks up the long week and fans are usually out before 11pm," said GMP General Manager, Dan Elliott. "These Pro Late Model drivers only have fifty laps to get to the checkered flag, so it is a very competitive race."

GMP is excited about the growing partnership with JEGS and the Coughlin family. For more information about JEGS, please visit www.Jegs.com.

On July 18, the grandstand and trackside parking gates will open at 5 p.m. and Opening Ceremonies will begin at 8 p.m.

Ticket prices for the JEGS Pro Late Models 50 are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and military. Kids 12-and-under are admitted free and pit passes are $35.
