For the team's first sixteen seasons, JGR ran cars from General Motors. During that period, the team won their three championships, two in Pontiac Grand Prixes and one in a Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

Currently Erik Jones, Daniel Suárez, Cody Coughlin, and Matt Tifft are under development contracts, driving in the Xfinity Series for JGR and the Camping World Truck Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports.
