DELAWARE, Ohio (December 19, 2006) – JEGS Automotive Inc, an industry leader in high-performance mail order parts, has become a sponsor of the popular SpeedFreaks television and radio shows. JEGS will be featured prominently on the set of the upcoming SpeedFreaks show, which will air on ESPN2, as well as the nationally-syndicated SpeedFreaks radio program. The familiar yellow and black colors of JEGS will also seen throughout their popular website ( where fans can go to download their favorite media, video, Podcasts and more.

“I remember doing the SpeedFreaks show when they first got started and it’s been fun watching them grow,” three-time NHRA champion Jeg Coughlin said. “The upcoming shows on ESPN2 will be exciting to be a part of and we’re psyched about reaching all of the markets they hit on Sunday nights with their radio show.”

“To be associated with JEGS is like getting a seat in the United Nations,” says SpeedFreaks founder Kenny Sargent. “JEGS Mail Order is the motherload hands down. Plus, having three time NHRA Champion and Coughlin namesake dropping into the SpeedFreaks Pits from time to time, our seat is now front row.”

SpeedFreaks’ weekly, two-hour radio program can be heard in many markets across the country including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, Detroit, Phoenix, San Diego, Indianapolis, Charlotte and Salt Lake City. SpeedFreaks can also be heard on The Sports Byline Radio Network, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, The Armed Forces Network and live on the Internet.

“We like the fact we’ll be reaching a very diverse and broad group of motorsports fans with this program,” said Scott Woodruff, JEGS director of media & motorsports. “We believe that the listeners of SpeedFreaks will expand our brand awareness from Motocross to NASCAR to SCORE Off-Road racing and beyond. The idea is for this partnership to compliment what we’re doing in the various forms of motorsports where we have a presence.

“The message we want to get to all fans of motorsports is that JEGS is the first and only place they need to supply them with all of their high performance needs. We want people to know we have free 1-2 day delivery, millions of parts from our vast inventory, great prices and the best in customer service.”

Started in 2000, SpeedFreaks includes a wild cast of characters led by Kenny Sargent and the “Mod Squad of Motorsports” — Statt Mann Caruthers, Lugg Nuttz, and Crash Gladys.

“They do things a little differently on the show and they definitely enjoy what they’re doing,” Coughlin said. “I think their fans really appreciate their no-holds-barred style and the racers always seem to get a kick out of doing an interview that doesn’t consist of the same old questions. It will be fun to be a part of them in the year ahead.”

SpeedFreaks will debut a special TV show on ESPN2 in the coming year.
