Sep 24, 2012
JGR Secures 100th Career Win
Denny Hamlin made good on his promise to win Sunday’s Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Utilizing the stopping power of Raybestos brakes and optimal grip and handling of Raybestos chassis parts… Hamlin scored his 22nd career win and a series high fifth win of the season.
“I had a lot of confidence in my car and in my team going into this race,” said Hamlin, driver of the No. 11 FedEx Freight Toyota. “I knew what we were capable of and that we had a great shot to win. It was another strong team effort by our team. Darian and the guys did a great job on the set up for the race and my pit crew was awesome. Everyone back at the shop did a great job to give me a lightning-fast car with a powerful brake package and a responsive suspension. It was just a total team effort.”
The Raybestos Racing brake package, used by NASCAR® teams like Joe Gibbs Racing, combines ample stopping power with a considerable weight savings advantage on tracks like New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s 1.058-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 New Hampshire 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.
