The Jasper Engines & Transmissions Driveline Division will supply 4-Speed Transmissions to Stewart-Haas Racing for the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.
Stewart-Haas Racing joins Joe Gibbs Racing and Furniture Row Racing as users of JASPER products.
2015 was a highly successful season for the JASPER Driveline Division. All told, eight of the top 10 drivers in the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series final points standings drove cars equipped with JASPER products, including 2015 Series Champion, Kyle Busch. Sprint Cup Series cars equipped with JASPER products accounted for 23 wins, 95 top-five finishes, 161 top-ten finishes, and earned 20 pole position starts in 2015.
“It’s truly a testament to the strength and durability of our driveline products,” says Terry DeKemper, JASPER Driveline Division Manager.”
Stewart-Haas Racing drivers Kevin Harvick, Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch and Danica Patrick, along with Furniture Row Racing driver, Martin Truex Jr, are using the single-rail version of the JASPER’s 4-Speed Transmission, which allows a single external rail to rotate and move two internal forks to engage the four forward gears.
Returning for the 2016 season are Joe Gibbs Racing drivers Denny Hamlin, Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, and NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers Daniel Suarez, Erik Jones and Matt Tifft. Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth will also be among Joe Gibbs Racing drivers in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Each driver has a car equipped with a JASPER three-rail 4-Speed Transmission.
