CJM Racing is a NASCAR Nationwide Series team driven by Jason Keller part-time. It began in 2001 in the Craftsman Truck Series as #6 with Morgan Shepherd as the owner/driver and Red Line Oil sponsoring, running under the moniker Victory in Jesus Racing. It moved up to Nextel Cup the next year, changing its number from 6 to 89. It debuted at New Hampshire International Speedway and ran four more races that year, each ending in a DNF and Racing with Jesus taking over sponsorship. After 2002, the team ran a part time schedule for Shepherd.
In 2006, two Christian businessmen, Bryan and Tony Mullet, began investing in the team, which brought about a name change from Victory in Jesus Racing to Victory Motorsports. After not making the field for each of the early attempts, Shepherd sold the team to Mullet and Dutch Quality Stone and the team changed its name to CJM Racing. Kertus Davis and David Gilliland, as well as Brent Sherman, took over the newly-renumbered #72 car. Mike Skinner drove the car for 2 races of the season.
Brandon Whitt was announced as the team's Cup driver for 2007, but after three races, they switched to the Busch Series and the #11. Jason Keller served as the team's driver. They were sponsored by Force Protection Inc. and vehicle history company Carfax. Keller was moderately successful in the #11, with four of his five top 10 finishes for 2007 coming in that car. Keller also made his historic 418th start in the #11, beating the record set by Tommy Houston.
CJM started 2008 unsponsored, but got a one race deal in Vegas from America's Incredible Pizza Company, which eventually turned into a race by race sponsorship and eventually a season long sponsorship. The America's Incredible Pizza Company and CJM Racing actually signed a six year agreement. CJM Racing's owners will become partners in the company and will open and operate new stores under the agreement. AIPC on the other hand will take half of their profits and put it into the race team. CJM will take half of it's winnings (not profits) and donate them to the APIC charities of choice.
