JDP Motorsports President and Team Driver Jordan Priestley was able to help the Hang Time team find the right fit. Today, we're passing that story along to you.

Our Team enjoyed working with Hang Time Racing and Wilwood to put a selection of brake pads to the test. We're glad to hear they turned out!

2016 Camaro Evilynn

An amazing article hit the GM EFI Magazine website this morning that was all about the prowess of the sixth gen Camaro – in other words, it featured the JDP Motorsports 6th-Gen Camaro Evilynn. GM EFI Founder and Editor Rick Seitz has a lot of praise for the 2016 Camaro and its performance right out of the gate this season:

“This 2016 SS serves as a model for the next generation of late-model performance; both in terms of mechanical attributes and in trackability. It’s already hit the autocross circuits and road courses hard over the last year, from LS Fest and OUSCI, to various other events all over the country and by this time next year, we expect it to be a completely different vehicle than what you’re looking at right now.”

Super Chevy Highlights Optima USCA Event in Fontana

Posted By: JDP Team - On: 10/20/2016 11:52 AM

OPTIMA Race in Fontana

Super Chery's article "Chevys Dominate at Optima Ultimate Street Car Event Fontana" recaps the OPTIMA event in California this October. And as Super Chevy notes, Chevys have controlled the competition this season: “As we've seen all year long, Chevys have dominated the entry lists and taken home plenty of hardware, and that trend continued in California” (Super Chevy).

In his 2016 Camaro SS, JDP driver Jordan Priestley entered the race planning to add to the points and victories won by Chevys all season long.

“We’re very happy with the overall season results. We were able to finish on the podium at every USCA event we competed in this season with a brand new platform. JDP Racing won 3 events competitively in GT and overall at PPIR. We’ve been running development products from our partners at Airaid, Centerforce, Detroit Speed and the car is getting better and better at each event. We will continue to refine our packages and go into the 2017 season with larger goals” (Jordan Priestley).

Centerforce Spotlights JDP’s Performance at Pikes Peak

Posted By: JDP Team - On: 7/19/2016 2:05 PM

PPIRAt Pikes Peak at earlier this July, we faced a lot of great competition in a VERY competitive GT class, earning second place in the PowerStop Speed Stop, second place in the Lingenfelter Design and Engineering portion, second place in the Detroit Speed autocross segment and first in the Falken Tires Hot Lap Challenge.

The Pikes Peak USCA Event was also a win for Centerforce, as is highlighted in their article “Centerforce Racers Dominate the USCA's Pikes Peak International Raceway Event,” with all top-three GT winners running Centerforce clutch systems. We were particularly excited to be invited by Centerforce to use their 2016 Camaro DYAD DS Twin Disc clutch prototype for the race.

According to Centerforce, “Our new DYAD DS Twin Disc is 16 pounds lighter than stock, and is the ultimate performance clutch for a high horse-power mustang. Jordan installed his new clutch and put it to work right away, winning the GT class.”
