VINCENTOWN, N.J. (April 25, 2022) – Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports are continuing to turn heads in Pennsylvania Posse Country, and weeks of success leading into the All Star Circuit of Champions invasion only proved beneficial for the Vincentown, New Jersey-based open wheel team, ultimately translating a pair of Series starts into a dash appearance and a top-ten result – the first of Whittall’s young career.
Whittall, driver of the JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, Enterprise, No. 67 sprint car, earned his All Star Circuit of Champions top-ten finish during Williams Grove Speedway’s annual Tommy Hinnershitz Classic on Friday, April 22, battling ahead from 12th to finish seventh in 30 circuits. Whittall is certainly no stranger to the famed Williams Grove Speedway half-mile, owning one victory at the Speedway since making the switch to full-time 410ci competition.
Whittall was battling for a top-ten outcome the following evening in Port Royal Speedway’s Keith Kauffman Classic, but faded and ended up with a flat; he was scored 27th. Despite the tough ending, Whittall had plenty of shining moments including earning a heat race victory and a dash appearance where he finished fifth.
“That was a great weekend for our team. I think we had the potential to be just as good at Port Royal, but to score a top-ten with the All Stars at Williams Grove Speedway is pretty special,” Whittall said. “I can’t thank my family and team enough for all of their support. They are the backbone of this race team and I wouldn’t be where I am today without their hard work and dedication. The Outlaws will be in our area in a few weeks and I’m excited to race with them.”
Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports will continue their 2022 campaign with another Central Pennsylvania double on Friday and Saturday, April 29-30. The team will visit Williams Grove Speedway and Port Royal Speedway in consecutive fashion. Port Royal will utilize a double heat format with passing points assembling the main event starting grid.
Justin Whittall and JW Motorsports would like to thank all of their marketing partners including: JG Kronenberger Fine Jewelry, Mid-Atlantic Transport, Pioneer Auto Body, Worldwide Bearings, Enterprise.
