Off-Road Racing Legend to Oversee the Race Shop, the Build and the Racing Team

youtheory ( racing is proud to announce that off-road racing legend Jerry Whelchel has joined its team as Chief Operating Officer and Head Crew Chief. Whelchel will oversee the race shop and is responsible for building and maintaining the youtheory Spec Trophy Truck driven by Anthony and Jeff Terzo. The Terzo brothers currently race in the 6183 series.

“We're beyond excited to have Jerry join youtheory racing,” said youtheory CEO Darren Rude. “His experience and knowledge have become an invaluable resource to our team. His attention to detail and thoroughness positions us to be competitive throughout each race.”

Whelchel began racing when he was only 14, before most people even drive, in a Class 1 car with his father. Following a successful career in the Mickey Thompson series where he raced in every event, he made the switch to Spec Trophy Trucks.

“I’m excited to help the youtheory team and Terzo brothers race to victory,” said Jerry Whelchel. “They have the desire and talent needed to win and I’m going to make sure they have the right tools to get the job done.”

“We're looking forward to a very competitive Vegas to Reno race and with Jerry leading us, we'll be in a good position throughout,” said youtheory off-road racer Jeff Terzo. “Being it's our first time entering, we're looking forward to checking out the course and working hard to win! I value Jerry’s mentorship and look forward to competing side by side with him.”

youtheory, sold in over 50,000 retailers nationwide, quickly realized the untapped sponsorship potential that NASCAR and off-road racing had for health and beauty brands. Following its lead, major retailers like Vitamin World, the Vitamin Shoppe, Amazon and GNC have all come on-board as co-sponsors. In addition to owning an off-road spec trophy truck, youtheory is the primary sponsor of the #70 Camaro driven by Derrike Cope in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
