Consistent 2nd place finishes for JCM
With the past weekends’ return to 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas Jeremy Campbell and the 10c team again found themselves with a set of 2nd place finishes after taking home a runner up position in both the heat race and the feature event.
“Second place is obviously a great finish, but we are definitely hungry for that first win of the season,” said Campbell. Prospects are good as the team returns to Dodge City Raceway Park this weekend for NSL/NCRA action. Campbell dominated the event in 2015, and will look to repeat the performance.
5th consecutive Top Five for Jeremy Campbell Motorsports
Wichita, Kansas – The Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team continued their string of strong finishes this weekend with another Top Five at Dodge City Raceway Park. In the NCRA / NSL tour’s first visit to DCRP for the year Campbell started 5th in heat race action and battled both the strong winds and strong competitors to bring home a second place finish.
Passing points landed the 10c machine a 3rd place starting position for the feature event, and with weather rolling in the shortened feature event saw Campbell, Droud and Johnson making quick work of lap traffic. The checkered flag fell on Droud, Johnson, Campbell in third and Tony Bruce Jr. in fourth.
The team heads to Texas Motor Speedway this weekend for an ASCS National event and then begins a traveling stretch with events in Salina, Kansas, Indiana and Michigan.

Pair of 2nd place finishes for Jeremy Campbell Motorsports
Wichita, Kansas – 4/25/2016 - This weekend saw an action packed two days for the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team, with the #10c machine traveling to Humboldt, Kansas Friday night to compete with the ASCS Red River Region, followed by the 81 Speedway season opener Saturday night where Campbell is the defending champion.
In ASCS action Friday night, Campbell quickly made his presence known in his first visit to Humboldt and first ASCS event of the year, running second quick in practice, and coming from 7th to 3rd in the heat, making him 2nd highest in points. After the redraw Campbell lined up 4th for the feature event.
During the A Campbell, Blake Hahn and Kyle Bellm put on a great battle for fans, with Hahn spinning out twice but still coming home 3rd behind Campbell in 2nd and event winner Bellm.
Saturday’s season opener was all about the fans and supporters of 81 Speedway and the JCM team, with Campbell taking home a heat race win, along with a 2nd place feature finish. Throughout the day he also participated in an autograph session for fans and was the “racer” representative for 81 Speedway in a March of Dimes Charity Pony Race.
The next event for JCM is Saturday April 30th at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas.
Campbell returns to Texas Motor Speedway with ASCS National Tour
5-16-2016, Wichita Kansas – Jeremy Campbell and the 10c machine returned to The Dirt Track at Texas Motor Speedway this past weekend for the first time in almost 10 years. Campbell had raced there previously with the World of Outlaws, but this marked his first visit to the track in the 360 division.
With more than 40 cars on hand for the ASCS National event, every time on the track was important, and Campbell struggled a bit on his heat race start on Friday, started 5th and finishing 6th. In the qualifier event he was able to gain a few positions but it wasn’t enough to make up the ground needed to avoid the B Feature. With passing at a minimum throughout the night, Campbell started 4rd in the B and finished 4th as well, missing the transfer by one position.
Saturday again saw Campbell starting 5th and finishing 6th in heat race action. “I knew going into the qualifier I needed to make something happen,” Campbell said. “We were running out of tires, fuel and money, and with the only passing happening on the start it was now or never.”
At the drop of the green Campbell made a move on the outside and gained six spots in the first lap, moving from 10th to 4th. He battled for position forward and back for the rest of the event, but came home fourth, gaining much needed points for the rest of the night.
Starting on the pole of the B Campbell was able to secure a transfer spot and qualify for the main event. “We went through every new and used tire we brought with us this weekend,” Campbell said. “The qualifiers give the fans more to watch on track, but it kills the small budget teams like us.” Starting 22nd in the feature, with no track improvements the JCM team made the business decision to start and park, ending the weekend’s events.
“No one wants to start and park, but we are glad to have fought through some mistakes on track and off and make the main, now I just have to look at what’s best for my team money wise and reasonably see where the money starts on the pay scale versus the cost of four new tires. We are talking to teams burning through 16 tires this weekend, that’s tough on anyone,” Campbell said.
The team is off this coming weekend but in back in action May 27th with the NCRA / NSL Tour in Salina, Kansas followed by a May 28th NCRA / NSL Tour event at 81 Speedway.
