About JRi Engineering Solutions:

JRi Engineering Solutions was founded out of its sister company, JRi Shocks, in 2020 to bring the company’s high-performance hydraulic and pneumatic damping technology to industries outside of racing and street performance.

JRi Shocks was founded in 2007 by Jeff Ryan, who is widely regarded as one of the most legendary shock innovators of his time. His 40 years of experience and pioneering technologies have supported championship teams in all forms of motorsports, including Formula One, IndyCar, NASCAR and at the highest levels of short track racing. Ryan began his career as one of the first 8 employees at Fox Shocks before moving on to working for various race teams in IndyCar and Formula 1. He would later go on to partner with Roger Penske to form Penske Racing Shocks, where he left his largest imprint on the racing world by setting the modern-day standard for damper performance in the motorsports industry.

In October of 2018, JRi Shocks was purchased by NASCAR Hall of Fame Crew Chief and Team Owner Ray Evernham. With 3 NASCAR Cup Series championships and more than 70 wins as a crew chief and team owner, Evernham is one of the most successful mechanics, race car designers and businessmen in NASCAR history. Ray and Jeff Ryan began collaborating during the late 1980s in the IROC series and continued to work together as Evernham started his career in NASCAR, where they would develop the foundation for the current NASCAR Cup Series shock package.

Once Evernham and Ryan partnered together on JRi Shocks, they began to see the overwhelming interest and need for the company’s technologies in industries outside of the motorsports and streetcar marketplace. JRi Engineering Solutions was born and serves a wide variety of customers in several different industries.
