Jeff Halligan Racing and Risser Motorsports are honored to welcome long-time sprint car racing supporter, J&S Classics, to their family.

The late Jim Kline, who recently passed away after a battle with brain cancer, and his wife Sandy are highly respected members of the racing community in Central Pennsylvania and beyond for many years.  The pair owned a very successful sprint car team for some time, then moved on to support tracks, events, and drivers in many ways over the years.

In 2024, the familiar J&S Classics logo will tour Central Pennsylvania speedways on the wing of Jeff Halligan’s No.45.


The Kline’s created J & S Fabrication in 1990.  Sandy shared that their goal when they started J&S Fabrication was to own a sprint car team.  They accomplished that goal in 2001 with their son Dean in the seat.

The Klines owned their famed No. 22 sprint car for a decade, campaigning regularly across Central Pennsylvania from 2001 through the 2010 season.  Successful drivers such as Darren Eash, Kenny Jacobs, Jason Johnson, Fred Rahmer, and the late Greg Hodnett graced their seat, recording numerous championships and victories.  One of the most memorable was the 2009 National Open at Williams Grove Speedway with Hodnett at the wheel.

J & S Classics was born from Jim’s love of custom street rod cars.  Jim started out building cars just for himself but eventually, it grew into the business we know today.  Through J&S Classics, Jim and Sandy have continued their support of motorsports for many years.

“Our entire team is grateful for the support of Jim and Sandy.  Jim was a great man.  Sandy and her family are in our thoughts and prayers as they mourn their tragic loss.”, Jeff Halligan shared.

The additional support is a nice boost for Halligan’s program with Risser Motorsports.  The combination has been racing 410 sprint cars together for four full seasons now and has garnered at least one victory in each of those seasons at Port Royal Speedway.
