Newsham's career has been eventful to say the least. Newsham has been featured on television, Internet news websites, and magazines such as garnering the cover of RPM Magazine for the 4th annual Shakedown at E Town, Race Pages, and various editorials by leading authors of the sport.
Joe will be candid at the track and in the shop, a true professional gentleman of the sport. The number one racing news website "goDragRacing.com" awarded Newsham the Overall Driver Of The Year as quoted "The twin turbo Mustang from J & E Performance was a number one pick as the car to beat in 2006. Joe Newsham handled the driving and Injection Connection tuned this machine to some of the northeast's quickest and fastest times throughout the year while seamlessly swapping over from a small block twin to a big block twin. Newsham has played in the northeast on all levels. His track presence is highlighted by the fact that not only can he run at the top of the points with all the others but also move through categories of race's like both the 10.0 and12.0 Index to even out his skills as a driver and a complete racer."
More awards came later on as the outlaw racing took off big time and went to an almost anything goes format as the years moved forward.

Chris Cline: Crew Chief / Tuner
Hometown: Dresher, Pennsylvainia
Occupation: Injection Connection Tuning Expert
Skills: Fourteen years of racing industry standard performance fuel, spark, and data management
Racing Credentials: Though young in age for his abilities, Chris Cline has made the J&E Performance Outlaw Cobra a feared opponent through his exceptional crew chief status and tuner extraordinaire'. His roll as both at both of these positions comes from a backing of one of the top tuner facilities on the east coast in the form of Injection Connection. You'll rarely find someone who has put so much effort into a program that is always evolving with updated engine management, fuel and spark acquisition to bring out more power than this car will ever need on the track but make use of it properly and efficiently on each pass. Cline's potential as a tuner hasn't even reached its peak, yet he shares in all the above mention wins and championships as stated above in the Newsham Accomplishments with Team J&E Performance as the tuner that took control and headed the team in a direction that is now the talk of the northeast in his abilities as a consummate tuner and crew chief.
About Chris Cline:
This year started out with a new larger cubic inch engine combination for Team J&E Performance with bigger cubes and a much more advanced reality of how it will handle the course of its passes down the track. Chris Cline and the team pulled out so much power out of the last combination of one of the smallest engines in its class to be consistent and fast at the same time to be a part of all these championships that J&E Performance has acquired.
Cline will surely use his skills developing more over his coming years to advance Team && E Performance through more rounds and wins from his advanced knowledge gained by being part of this team and his Injection Connection background.
