About Hedgecock Racing:
Hedgecock Racing Enterprises is a leader in the stock car manufacturing located in High Point, North Carolina. They have been in business over 30 years designing and building of stock cars and restoration of old American cars.
Hedgecock Racing Enterprises was founded by stock car industry veteran, Jay Hedgecock. Jay started this fabrication business in a small Quonset hut located on his parent’s property in 1983 in High Point, NC. After beginning his career building and racing his own race cars, Jay worked his way up to Winston Cup using equipment and race cars that he and his crew built themselves. Through this process, Jay developed a reputation for building great race cars and other drivers and team owners started coming to him for their race car fabrication needs. Hedgecock Racing Enterprises built race cars for many famous NASCAR drivers such as; Richard Petty, Dale Earnhart, Sr., Jeff Burton, Kevin Harvick, and Mark Martin’s son, Matt Martin. Today, Hedgecock Racing Enterprises’ 13,500 square foot facility is located on the same property catering to the local short track drivers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
