JE Pistons back on board to support USMTS racers
Officials from the United States Modified Touring Series are honored to welcome back JE Pistons to the family of businesses who support the racers in the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt.
As part of their commitment to USMTS competitors, JE Pistons will share the Engine Builder of the Year Award sponsorship and dole out year-end awards to the top five in the Engine Builder of the Year standings.
In addition, JE Pistons will supply a $500 product certificate to both the Summit USMTS National Champion and Grant Junghans USMTS Rookie of the Year.
“We’re thrilled to be going racing with the USMTS again in 2022,” said Jim Irwin, General Manager for JE Pistons. “JE was born from grassroots racing and the great work done by USMTS and their racers each and every round is a perfect fit with our rich history in all levels of circle track racing.
“Thanks to racer feedback, we’ve been working to expand our off-the-shelf offerings of circle track purpose-designed pistons, too. So we’re excited to see what this season has in store.”
JE Pistons is also adding cold, hard cash to the points fund for all eligible USMTS racers.

2022 season blasts off March 4-5: The Summit USMTS Modifieds will invade the Rocket Raceway Park in Petty, Texas, on Friday and Saturday, March 4-5, for the 12th Annual Texas Spring Nationals.
The fast and wide high-banked quarter-mile dirt oval, formerly known as 82 Speedway and East Texas Speedway, opened in 2015 and hosted the USMTS for the first and only time on June 25. Philip Houston was the winner that night.
The Texas Spring Nationals will also welcome USRA Stock Cars for the first time ever, along with USRA Limited Mods and USRA Factory Stocks both nights. An open practice for all divisions is slated for Thursday night, March 3.
The Rocket Raceway Park holds 3,400 spectators and its elevated grandstands offer superb viewing from any seat. The venue can be found in Lamar County—about 15 minutes west of Paris and 25 minutes east of Bonham.
