Kody Hartlaub’s success and consistency over the last two seasons hasn’t gone unnoticed.  Fans certainly have the East Berlin, PA driver on their radar and now a York, PA business has taken note and joined forces with Hartlaub as well.

J Fuels, a locally owned and operated business known as South Central PA’s Best Choice for Propane, will adorn the wing of Hartlaub’s No.95 sprint cars, both in the 358 and 410 divisions.


The J Fuels Story

J Fuels, founded in 2015 by owners Jimmy O’Brien Jr. and JR Facciola, strives to provide fuel to residential, commercial, and agricultural customers across south-central Pennsylvania. After initially only providing propane, they expanded in 2016 into the home heating oil and off road diesel business.

They pride themselves in their customer service and they promise to work with customers to help them understand all of their options to help save them money, not only now, but in the future as well.

J Fuels does it all:  Commercial Service and Residential Service.  Why people choose J Fuels?  They provide 24/7 emergency delivery, competitive pricing and fast & friendly service.

Bringing the Vision Into Focus

Hartlaub jumped into the 358 sprint car ranks a few years ago with just what he needed to go racing.  Since then, he has been working to build the depth of his program, knowledge and experience.  He has done so with a calculated plan with the support of his current partners.

As he has dipped the figurative toe of Kody Hartlaub Racing into the 410 sprint car ranks in 2023, with aspirations of that being the team’s full time endeavor within a few years, the choices have sometimes become harder.  Resources only go so far.  To invest in this week, this season or the future is sometimes the choice that must be made.

We couldn’t be happier that Jimmy and JR wanted to become part of our team.  For us, this means fewer tough choices.  Now we can allocate resources to our future vision.“, Kody Hartlaub commented.

We want to go into full time 410 racing within a few years.  We are trying to start preparing now so we don’t get sidelined to easily once we choose that path.  By partnering with J Fuels, we know we can reach that vision and maybe we will even reach it sooner than expected.  Maybe 2024 isn’t out of the question if things work out.

“We know we can give Jimmy and JR a great return for their investment by advertising and representing J Fuels everywhere we go, through our connections in the sport and through our fans at the track and on social media.”
