Since running a Hedgecock racing chassis I've found that no one will work harder or does more quality work than Jay. Superior product and superior quality!

“This entire year has been amazing for us and winning at Martinsville Speedway is icing on the cake! I know the success we have had would not have been possible without Hedgecock Racing. You don’t just get chassis from Jay Hedgecock & HRE, it goes way beyond that. You get the support and knowledge from absolute best in the business."

2013 has been an amazing year for us! Winning back to back North Carolina State Championship and finishing 2nd in the nation could not have been possible without Hedgecock Race Cars. McCaskill Motorsports is proud to represent HRE!

My experience with Hedgecock racing has been nothing but positive. Jay is not only an intelligent Chassis builder but very knowledgeable on track set ups. Jay goes over and beyond to help my program. He shows up on race day and is there to help out with all his customer’s needs. I have had a successful season with Hedgecock Racing and look forward to the upcoming year. I would recommend Hedgecock Racing to anyone looking to win races with an honest, stand-up guy.

“This is my 1st full season in late models. I had raced a couple other types of chassis but it wasn’t until I hit the track in a Hedgecock I felt the difference immediately. In 2013, I won the NWAAS Kingsport Speedway Championship, won the NWAAS Tennessee State Championship placed 9th in the Nation in NWAAS National Championship. I won the heat race and the pole for the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 at Martinsville Speedway. I already had a great team and choosing a Hedgecock Chassis helped us accomplish this great season. Hedgecock will be my Chassis of choice. If you’re not in a Hedgecock your already behind!

“Jay, Just a word of thanks for the awesome late model you built for us this season! Since this was a new venture for us, we knew that to race cars in the same winning manner that we have accomplished in boats for decades that we needed to obtain the best. I feel that we have the very best car (Hedgecock), the best engines, (Kowalski), the best driver (Nick Smith) and our crew chief and crew are truly the best! Our car racing began last season in the Legends car division where Nick won every race at every track we raced at. Unprecedented! I know when we called to purchase a car you most likely thought “who”? But the support your company provided us was world class. When we showed up at your door on Mondays needing a front or rear clip (or both!), or a rear end straightened, you completed it ASAP, and done to perfection... This season our #77 car, was bad fast at the very tough Langley Speedway, set the track record, won the most poles, led the most laps, and won the most races. (9)! We are proud of our season and sincerely thank you for the BEST car and support available anywhere. All the best",

“At Orion Motorsports, we have been racing with HRE chassis' for over 20 years. They are consistently fast and innovative. With HRE we feel we have a winning car everywhere we go. Jay is always willing to give advice or come to the track and help if needed.”

This year at Kingsport speedway we had several ups and downs; we started the season off with a couple poles and a new track record. We proceeded to have several good runs with a real fast and consistent Hedgecock Racecar. Unfortunately, about mid-season, we ended up getting tangled up in a wreck where we ended up getting upside down. I would like to thank Jay and his guys for building safe cars because I was able to get away without even getting bruises. I would also like to thank Jay and his guys for getting our car repaired back to new condition on the same day that we took it to him. We were able to go back and get the car just as quick as it was before. We are looking forward to a great 2014 season in our Hedgecock race car.

I've been so lucky to own and drive a lot of late models. With the support of Jay only a phone call away and always being at the race track on any given weekend it was a no brainer to choose a Hedgecock chassis.

“We have been racing HRE cars since we started running Late Models in 1997. We could not ask for any better people to be associated with, then HRE. Jay, Keith, and the whole staff has always been a pleasure to work with and they are always available if you need them. First class all the way.”

I really appreciate everything you and jay have done for me, the opportunity to drive the house car at the beginning of Jay Hedgecock driver development and even years before then when I had my own equipment. Jay was a huge help to all if my success!

“Hedgecock chassis' are by far the fastest and most consistent chassis I've raced. No other car comes close!”

Taylor Coffman - No. 30
 

“Let me start out by saying we have been fortunate to not have torn up any major components on our Hedgecock chassis this year! That is good for us but not for Jay and all the guys at Hedgecock racing! With that being said I can still pick up the phone and call Jay, or even text him and he is always so helpful to me when I need help with my race car! And when we do need parts and shocks built I always enjoy getting to visit with Jay when I am there! I have worked with Jay for many years winning races and championships ...when I took care of Ross Furr’s car in the UARA Series and Doc Miracle’s Hedgecock car! Hedgecock race cars keep getting better and the quality workmanship also keeps getting better. And with that and the support you get is why we enjoy working with Jay!!! Four wins and several poles for me this year says a lot, considering I was somewhat semi-retired from driving!!! Thanks Jay!!!”

Hedgecock chassis have been a key ingredient to my wins and championships in racing. HRE builds quality chassis you can depend on that will produce the speed and consistency it takes to win races and championships. Jay and his guys are also some of the nicest and easiest guys to get along with and will help you get to the front!

"I've been in racing for many years now and learned real quick you must have good equipment to run well. Hedgecock Racing provides you with the best racing equipment there is - all the way from the chassis to shocks to the winning setups it takes to win in the very competitive late model series. Jay's level of knowledge and understanding of racecars is far beyond the rest. HRE even provides the opportunity to learn about racing through there academy, which is a must in today’s world of racing."

“I could not be happier with Jay Hedgecock and his team at Hedgecock Racing. Having won my first championship in a Hedgecock Chasiss, my loyalty will always remain with Jay and his team. By far, they build the best race cars in the region. Thank you Jay & team for all your support and help!”

Brian Pembelton – No. 00  

 

Jay is always willing to help me get better. I've had other car builder's chassis in the past and if I needed advise Jay would have some ideas of things I needed to try. Now that I have a Hedgecock race car, Jay keeps me going the fast laps I need.
