I can tell you that when you read accounts of the old 6 day races, you'll see quotes like "when so and so was on the jam..." - meaning so and so was sprinting. Sort of like the "jammers" in Roller Derby, who were the sprinters in that sport. (Well, it once was a sport, I think.)

What is a "jamming tool" anyway? A second cousin to the "johnson bar"?
