After battling Jimmie Johnson for the lead during the final run … Denny Hamlin reached the checkered flag first … achieving his third win of the season at Saturday’s IRWIN Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. This marks Hamlin’s 20th Cup victory.
 
Confirming the short-track superiority of Raybestos Racing brake pads… the top five finishing Cup teams at Bristol, and the top two finishing Nationwide teams at Bristol all ran Raybestos Racing product. Joe Gibbs Racing has won five of the last eight races at Bristol … and 14 of the last 22 on short tracks … all under the stopping power of Raybestos Racing brakes.
 
“On demanding short tracks like Bristol, Raybestos brakes deliver amazingly consistent performance,” said Darian Grubb, Crew Chief of Busch’s No. 11 Fed Ex Office Toyota. “We know when it’s a short track race, Denny can drive hard … brake even harder … and still capture the win.” The Bristol race earns the JGR team its fifth win for the season and its 98th Cup victory over all.
 
The JGR team secured another important victory at Friday night’s Food City 250 Nationwide Series race. Joey Logano won his sixth race of 2012 on the Nationwide circuit running Raybestos Racing rotors.
 
The Raybestos Short Track racing brake package, used by NASCAR teams like Joe Gibbs Racing, combines ample stopping power with a considerable weight savings advantage on tracks like Bristol Motor Speedway’s .533-mile oval track.
 
Raybestos racing brake pads are the ultimate high-friction, high-torque racing pads. The famous Raybestos “ST” series racing compounds provide superior stopping power for championship-caliber race teams.
 
Raybestos Racing calipers make up the strongest and lightest caliper package currently available in all of NASCAR. They have an optimized structure caliper architecture design and a mono-block aluminum alloy construction. They also include integral crossover cooling and progressively sized titanium pistons.
 
Raybestos Racing two-piece rotors are engineered to withstand the high-heat torture of short tracks and road courses; delivering the effective lightweight operation required for qualifying and superspeedway runs. Winning features include an S-groove slot design, a racing-specific vane configuration and optimized metallurgy.
 
For reliable performance, all Joe Gibbs Sprint Cup racecars are also equipped with Raybestos Racing ball joints and tie rods. The premium-quality chassis parts help fine-tune each car’s suspension setup for optimal grip and handling.
 
The lessons learned on short tracks like Bristol are continually translated into product improvements across the entire Raybestos product line, which includes racing, street performance, police patrol/pursuit vehicles and heavy-duty trucks.
