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, Uncle Joe's teams have competed in over 600 events. In addition to announcing at every major Southland motorsports event (he's also been the Voice of the Auto Club Speedway since it's 1997 opening) and racing whenever possible, Benson covers significant motorsports results on his Uncle Joe's Rock & Roll Morning Show on 100.3 The Sound in Los Angeles.
