Alex Job Racing Transitions To AJR Restorations

Alex Job Racing (AJR), known best for over 70 sports car victories, has transitioned its competition business to AJR Restorations.

Theo Ruijgh and Ken Davison have taken ownership of the company and will focus on restorations.

"Since we stopped racing three years ago, we have kept the shop and a group of dedicated employees led by Ken Davison working on restoring historic Porsche race cars," Alex Job said. "We wanted to find a way to keep that aspect of the business going and thanks to Theo Ruijgh, that will happen. Theo, along with Ken, has taken ownership to keep the restoration business working as AJR Restorations. I will no longer be involved in the day-to-day operation, I will keep my office at the shop, but will also be traveling the US visiting race tracks and helping to keep the shop busy."

Ruijgh is a vintage Porsche racer and is also the president of TRI Aviation, which specializes in servicing the T56 military engine that powers the C-130 military airplane.

"I am proud to carry on the legacy of quality craftsmanship with Ken that Alex and [his wife] Holly have built up over the years," Ruijgh said. "We have a full-service shop here in Tavares that has the ability and passion to restore race cars to better than new condition. AJR Restorations is committed to keeping the past alive with the same attention to detail that amassed those 70 sports car wins."

AJR got its start in a two-car garage in 1988 when Job and his wife Holly decided to join sports car competition.

From Daytona to Le Mans and to the team's home track in Sebring, the privateer effort grew to a full factory Porsche team, from GTU to Daytona Prototype. Alex Job Racing evolved through the years to achieve over 70 professional sports car wins, including two Rolex 24 Hour at Daytona class wins (1999, 2013),  two Le Mans class wins (2003, 2005), and the 10 Sebring 12 hour class wins (95, 99, 01, 02, 03, 04, 10, 12, 13, and 15). In addition, the team swept the GTC podium, first through third, in 2010. AJR was also inducted into the Sebring Hall of Fame in 2016.
