The partnership between BK Racing and JAS will keep trucking into the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Season.
After making their NASCAR debut as a sponsor last year with BK Racing, JAS Expedited Trucking will be on board the No. 83 Toyota Camry of Corey LaJoie as the primary sponsor at both Michigan International Speedway races in 2017. JAS will kick-off the season as an associate sponsor on LaJoie’s No. 83 for the Daytona 500.
JAS Expedited Trucking LLC. is a small family-owned expedited trucking company, located in Imlay City, Michigan. After 13 years of driving for other small fleet owners, Tony Freeland, owner of JAS, decided to purchase his first truck. With experience as both a driver and as an owner/operator, he thought he could provide a better environment for other drivers, so he started JAS Expedited Trucking and their second truck was purchased one year later. The company has since continued to grow. JAS is currently looking for qualified I.C. professional drivers to join and expand their team.

“My experiences with BK Racing last year were phenomenal, so I’m very happy to be back with them this year,” said Tony Freeland, owner of JAS Expedited Trucking. “I was a fan of Randy LaJoie back when he raced, so I’m really looking forward to working with his son, Corey. He’s a very down-to-Earth guy, and he will represent my company well.”
“I’m looking forward to working with Tony and JAS Expedited Trucking,” said Corey LaJoie, driver of the No. 83 Toyota Camry. “Tony is a guy who loves everything about the sport, so it’s very cool to be working with a company that sees the value of NASCAR on and off the racetrack. I’m going to do everything I can to give those guys the runs they deserve.”
“Tony Freeland has become like a family member to this team,” said Doug Fritz, Chief Marketing Officer of BK Racing. “The fact that JAS has chosen not only to return to our team but to increase their support, really means a lot for BK Racing. I’m glad they will be a part of our season-opening race at Daytona, and we are looking forward to putting the blue JAS Toyota back out on track this summer.”
