Managing Partner Kevin Besta says that a package from Stoneridge Specialty Insurance just makes good sense.


“Motorsports insurance isn’t just something we do; its all we do,” said Besta. “With people having so much invested in the sport these days, we must have a wide variety of plans to meet and exceed everyone’s needs.

From a Peterborough, Ontario home base, JP Motorsports – with driver Jean-Paul Josiasse – will run the Super Late Model division in the PASS Series at venues in the Southern United States, with Stoneridge Specialty Insurance joining existing sponsors Old Smoke House Catering, Apsley-Peterborough Transfer and Webb Transmission.


The team has already competed in one event – Saturday, February 6th at Greenville Pickens Speedway in Greenville, South Carolina – where a failed rad hose on lap 10 resulted in an early lengthy pit stop, with the team fighting back to salvage a 21st place finish in the 32 car field.
