Meet JR Garage!
Local Virginia automobile aficionados, the JR Garage brothers, have gathered a following on YouTube based on their somewhat miraculous (but mostly powered by good, old-fashioned hard work) business ventures. Jeff & Christian’s hard work and entrepreneurship have led to the pair coming to own their own small fleet of sweet sports cars, including a Dodge Viper, Ferrari 355, and Porsche 944!
JR Garage first went viral on YouTube after bringing their Viper to high school! You can watch that video here (and live vicariously through them - Imagine how much cooler we would all have been in high school if we had cars like these guys!)
Recently, we rented them a Mercedes Benz E64 AMG for a road trip from Los Angeles to San Diego, where the brothers were able to meet up with fans from the other side of the country. Check out the E64 AMG and their West Coast adventures in the following video!
Of course, Jeff and Christian can’t travel all over the nation to meet their fans and followers, but it quickly became clear to them and the team at Urgent.ly that people across the U.S. would jump at the chance to hang out with the guys for a day and see the cars. So we stepped in to help make that dream come true for one lucky fan. And thus, the JR Garage Meet & Greet, driven by Urgent.ly On-Demand Roadside Assistance, was born.
To enter, just download the Urgent.ly app, available for free on iOS or Android, register, and enter ‘JRGARAGE’ under Promo Codes in the Settings menu. That’s it! You’re registered! One lucky fan will win a trip out to the DC/NOVA region, including:

JR Garage will also be giving out a variety of other prizes - t-shirts, decals, you name it! Plus, each and every person who enters by putting the code into the app will receive $10 off any future Urgent.ly service. So everyone wins something!
Many individuals and local authorities have already jumped on the opportunity to remind users to drive safely. There are even signs popping up on highways to encourage safer driving.
Luckily, there are tools out there to help the tech-obsessed (or the poke-obsessed) improve their driving. One of our favorites is an app called TrueMotion Family! The app analyzes your driving in order to provide you with a score - and insights as to how you drive. It's perfect for parents who want to monitor their teen drivers. The app gives parents the power to see where their kids drive, and produces a 'report card' on their driving in addition to an assessment of whether they were driving distracted (using their cell phone). Plus, families have access to roadside assistance on-demand from right within the TrueMotion app.
I don’t remember Ash, Misty, or Brock driving cars in their quest to be the very best, like no one ever was. And there aren’t vehicles any in PokemonGO. At Urgent.ly, we love the game and just like you, we’re prepared to travel across the land searching far and wide to catch 'em all, but we encourage you to put safety first in your travels! Remember that the power of Pokemon is awesome in augmented reality but automobiles are a powerful tool meant for use in the real world and require optimum focus to operate safely. In a world we must defend, you can start by driving safely, and catch and train ‘em all when you’re not operating a vehicle.
