Gibbs, president of JGR. "We truly value our Timken partnership as it continues to deliver results, from our shop and testing facility straight through to on-track performance."

Those common values are a critical component to the winning formula that produces championship-caliber performance at the track," said Alastair Deane, Timken senior vice president – technology. "Our involvement in the sport translates into the creation of real value for our automotive, industrial and steel customers, as we leverage track-tested technology to solve critical fiction-management and power-transmission problems."
