AJF Racing Mission:
To compete successfully in a professional auto racing environment, to fulfill the goals of our sponsors and customers while building the support of loyal fans.
AJF Racing Overview:
AJF Racing LLC is a Motorsports Marketing / Advertising business providing clients with access to the highly desirable demographic, brand-loyal, motorsports fan base and general consumers through the use of attention grabbing racecars in competition and at events.
AJF Racing was formed in 1997 in Finksburg, Maryland by Andrew J. Frustaci, driver and owner of a local stock car team competing at Maryland and Pennsylvania race tracks. Andrew, a former auto cross racer and a veteran of the automotive industry, decided to form the auto racing, motorsports marketing company as a result of his knowledge and interest in the stock car racing business. AJF Racing began with specializations in race car marketing, fabrication, set up and competition.
Over the following years, Andrew found his business advancing rapidly and many new doors opening up. In 2001, Andrew, and fellow racers Jason Smith of Smith Bros. Racing and James Kirby of K&D Racing, combined efforts by merging to form AJF Racing LLC.
AJF Racing LLC competitively fields dirt and asphalt race cars in multiple divisions at numerous Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia speedways. The team has experience with brand marketing and competition in numerous divisions and sanctioning bodies including: Dirt Stock, Dirt Latemodel, NASCAR Latemodel, ASA, USAR Hooters Pro Cup, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
AJF Racing continues to grow and is currently performing race car marketing programs, competition preparation, fabrication of racing related components, racecar set-ups, and is consulting many teams in all aspects of auto racing.
AJF Racing House Car Competition:
Local dirt late model racing is and always will be the grassroots of automobile stock car racing in America. While national series like UMP Super Dirtcar and World of Outlaws, tear up the dirt touring all over the United States, the majority of dirt track racing takes place in small town America at local dirt tracks.
Each weekend from February to November, the most loyal of all motorsports fans gather at the local dirt tracks to watch hometown heros race for the win. The dirt ovals that range from 1/4 to 3/4 of a mile in length, pack the stands with yearly attendance totals in many cases surpassing the admission numbers of national super speedways.
Late model race teams compete in lightweight, purpose built, 500 plus horsepower dirt racing machines, argued by many racing fans as the most action packed level of racing in the world. Local, regional and even national sponsors are capitalizing on the appeal of the local racing experience. These sponsors see the value of participating in the least expensive form of motorsports marketing with measurable results. Companies at all levels are getting more benefit than in any other form of racing from local racers who need their support to compete on a weekly basis.
AJF Racing LLC. provides these companies with a medium to gain exposure to the loyal fans through both on and off track marketing programs. Each year, AJF Racing participates in numerous car shows, carnivals, county fairs, parades, grand openings and of course races, giving valuable exposure to sponsoring companies. 140 Mini Storage is a sponsor for AJF Racing and their logo is proudly shown on the No. 50 race car, and we utilize a self storage unit at their facility.
AJF competes at historic racetracks such as Lincoln Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway, Susquehanna Speedway Park, Winchester Speedway and Potomac Speedway. Hagerstown Speedway, which is the home track of AJF Racing, is known as “The Capital of Dirt Track Racing” and is the most well-known dirt late model track in the mid-Atlantic region. The affordable, friendly and exciting atmosphere has helped the popularity of local dirt racing grow as a favorite family weekend activity.
