Welcome to the official site of Team JEL Racing!
  
The 2015 season was busy but more so off the track than on. Paul Leister opened his own machine shop, Tipton Machine & Fabrication in January. Many evenings and weekends were spent kicking his business off this year. Once June rolled around the team was able to switch gears and get a few races in. Although the season was short we accomplished some great results. We are excited for the 2016 season to get here and look forward to getting back to a 20+ race schedule.  


Please contact Team JEL Racing if you are interested
in marketing opportunities for 2016.

Speedway Saturday night and competed with the USCS Modified Series.  Joseph started outside front row in the second heat and finished 4th.  He started 12th and worked his way up to 7th by lap twelve with the second yellow.  By this point Joe had a flat left front but decided to continue on.  With thirteen laps to go the race restarted and Joe continued to advance.  He finished 5th out of twenty two entries and received the Hard Charger award for passing seven cars.

 Jun 17-18 Team JEL Racing raced at NEA Speedway this past weekend.  Forty three cars showed up Friday for a chance to qualify into the 100 lap $5,000 to win feature that would take place Saturday.  Joe started 4th in the heat.  By lap three he had moved into third. As the laps wound down Joe closed in on Justin Mcbroom.  With a few laps to go Justin had a mechanical failure causing him to lose power.  With nowhere to go Joe ended up crashing into him ripping the right side sheet metal off.  No serious damage was done allowing Joe to finish 2nd transferring straight into the feature. He started 13th in the feature.  Joe stayed out of trouble during the feature finished 11th out of the twenty four car field.
