Automotive products firm to open WVa distribution center

Gov. Jim Justice announced Monday that the Speedway Motors distribution center in Kearneysville will bring 25 jobs to the state.

The Lincoln, Nebraska-based family owned business plans to start hiring this month for jobs that include human resources, warehouse and maintenance.

Speedway Motors CEO Clay Smith said on a conference call that the West Virginia location will cut shipping times for customers on the East Coast.

“This is really a big deal for us,” Smith said.
