Jay Engler, Fremont, Ohio


Jay grew up attending the races at Fremont Speedway. Jay built a super modified in 1964 and for four years hall of fame driver Fred Linder campaigned the Engler crafts. Jay was a Ford man, deciding to retire from owning race cars when sprint cars started taking over from the super modifieds. Jay would go on to work on the sprint cars of hall of famers Johnny Auxter and Jim Ford and later, when Fred Linder’s son Matt got into sprint car racing, Jay was there to lend a helping hand. Later Jay would run the pit tower at Fremont Speedway for many years. Jay’s business, Engler Printing of Fremont, helps with the printing needs of Fremont Speedway and other area tracks.
