Uncle Joe's Racing was formed in 1989 by Los Angeles disc jockey/author Joe Benson for competition and promotional appearances throughout Southern California. Since then, J.B.'s teams have competed in over 700 events and he's announced at every major Southland motorsports event. In addition, Unc has been the Voice of the Auto Club Speedway since its 1997 opening... and he still races whenever possible!
