JE Pistons, USMTS combine forces for engine builders, racers
JE Pistons has joined the USMTS family of marketing partners for the 2020 racing season and will join Compstar Performance Engine Components by Callies as sponsor of the Engine Builder of the Year program.
With deep roots in motorsports, JE has unmatched history in all levels of circle track competition. Their dedicated lines of pistons are forged and machined 100 percent in the USA from premium 2618 aluminum for ultimate strength, durability and performance.
In addition to awarding product certificates to the top 5 engine builders in the final standings, JE Pistons will also contribute cash to the year-end points funds for competitors.
The origins of what we know today as JE Pistons can be traced back to 1912 and the Los Angeles foundry of William Jahns Sr. and his company W.H. Jahns. Through the years, JE Pistons’ technology evolved from mastering casting technology in the 1960s to researching and implementing forging technology in the ‘70s.
JE Pistons has continued to evolve their manufacturing processes, currently offering racing pistons either off the shelf or fully custom. JE Pistons are all designed, forged and machined in-house, allowing control over every step of the piston-making process.
The 2020 schedule for the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s is highlighted by 58 nights of racing at 33 unique dirt ovals as part of the 22nd season for the world’s Best of the Best in dirt modified racing.
The campaign will blast off at the I-37 Speedway in Pleasanton, Texas, on Friday, February 28, as part of a Lone Star State swing featuring six races over the course of nine days. The tireless USMTS touring titans will roll two hours south on Saturday, February 29, as they return to the South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi before wrapping up the season-opening tripleheader on Sunday, March 1, at the Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige.
Fans and racers trek to the Big O Speedway in Ennis, Texas, for the 10th annual Texas Spring Nationals on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 5-7. The engines scream again three weeks later for the first of five crown jewels this season when the Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kan., hosts King of America X powered by Summit on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 26-28.
