5/26-27 81 Speedway, Park City, Kansas
NCRA vs. Sprint Car Bandits
Campbell sweeps at 81 Speedway
5/14/2018 - Local action at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas kicked off Saturday, April 12th. Seven-time defending champion Jeremy Campbell made no doubt about his dominance at his home track, winning both the heat race and feature event.
Starting 4th in the main event, Campbell was able to drive by the leaders and took the lead by turn 1. Never looking back, Campbell had a full straightaway advantage on second place by the time the checkered flag fell.
Up next for Jeremy Campbell Motorsports is a two day event with NCRA vs. the Sprint Car Bandits series Memorial weekend at 81 Speedway. Campbell scored a second place finish in the last match up of the two series, and is looking forward to bringing home a win!
4/30/2018 – Strong 2nd place finish for Campbell in first visit to Southern Oklahoma Speedway
The NCRA Sprint Series visited Southern Oklahoma Speedway Saturday, April 28th, for the first time in series history, and the first of two scheduled VERSES race with the Texas-based Sprint Bandit Series. The evening did not disappointment, and fans got their money’s worth in slide jobs and lead changes!
The JCM team started the evening on display by the main grandstands, giving fans who don’t typically see 360 sprint cars a chance to get up close and personal with the #10c machine! Coming from 3rd to 1st in heat race action, Campbell earned a 3rd place starting position for the main event.
Near perfect track conditions led to an A-feature full of lead changes, slide jobs and close calls. Oklahoma based Danny Jennings took the lead early, with Campbell, Don Droud Jr. and the Sprint Car Bandits Michael Lang trading sliders in a heated battle for 2nd place.
Campbell would end up taking the lead three different instances, with Jennings coming back each time. The leaders hit lap traffic early, making for some nail biters as they wove through slower cars. In the end, Jennings took the victory, with Campbell coming home a close second, and Droud rounding out the Top Three.
With no scheduled races for the coming weekend the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team will be making two different community appearances, with a visit to the Downtown Newton, Kansas car show Saturday, followed by a fun day of riding at long-time sponsor Dan’s Cycle Learn to Ride day at Jeeps Motorcycle Club Sunday, May 6th.
We are finally racing again!
4/2/2018 - Our 2018 race season opened Friday, March 29th at our home track of 81 Speedway. With a $13,000 pay day on the line, it’s a pretty high pressure weekend. Not only does the first race of the season feel like it sets the tone for the beginning on your season, you’re also really hoping to make some money and not end up in the hole right off the bat!
I know Jeremy feels a bit behind at these first races as well, since a lot of teams we compete against have a few races under their belts by now! 81 Speedway did a big redesign on the track this year as well, so there were lots of exciting variables going into this race.
Friday night Jeremy transferred out of the heat and straight to the main event. Friday was set up with double heat races so if you didn’t make it out you were done for the night! He ended up finishing 14th in the A-Main, and was one of the only NCRA guys to make the loaded feature, so while he didn’t get the top ten he was hoping for, 14th out of 45 or so cars is pretty good. There are no field fillers at events like this, every single car is strong!
Saturday’s $13,000 to win event was run like a typical show, heats, b-feature , etc. Passing points are almost more important than where you finish in heat races, and while Jeremy won his heat race, since he started front row it put us mid pack for the main event. Upside –we didn’t have to run the B!
The track was starting to fade a bit by the main event, so Jeremy took a big gamble and tried to make something work up top, while the rest of the field was on the bottom. Unfortunately it didn’t work and he went backwards in a hurry. Oops. I know he was probably cussing in the helmet.
Never giving up, he was able to battle back to another 14th place finish, and the car came back in one piece. Cars on either side of us weren’t so lucky, so while it’s sometimes frustrating to not have the finishes you want, looking at a junk car next to you puts it in perspective. Plus – we didn’t get rained out – so that’s already an improvement from 2017!
We did manage to sneak in some time on Saturday afternoon for an egg hunt with our children, along with Ryan Robert's and Jeff Stasa's families. The Dan's Cycle / Kawasaki mule worked perfect for carrying the kiddos and their hauls!
Currently we are in the middle of two weeks off before the 81 Speedway season opener. Behind the scenes at the Park City Cup our generator stopped working, our hot water heater in the RV where we stayed for two days wouldn’t work, and our fridge had issues. SOOOOO our off weekends are more just work on other things weekend.
We are looking forward to the season opener at 81 Speedway. Heat races start at 2 p.m., features at 7, and there are usually lots of fan events in between!
Thanks for your support of Jeremy Campbell Motorsports, we love seeing you all at the track and on facebook!

Jeremy Campbell Motorsports celebrates SEVENTH 81 Speedway Championship!
10/4/2017 - September 30th the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team clinched their 7th Championship, and 2nd consecutive Auto Craft Race of Champions event at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas. “This is our home track, and we always like to win in front of the local fans,” Campbell said. “Our car counts around here may be down, but the guys racing here every week are getting better and better and hopefully we are keeping things exciting.”
With only one points event left in the 2017 season, the team is still focused on repeating their 2016 success and winning the October 7th Salina Speedway NCRA event. Campbell is currently leading the point battle over defending champ Don Droud Jr.
Extra dates have also been added to 2017 schedule, after the conclusion of points racing, and more details will be released soon. These dates include a visit to Dodge City Raceway Park with the World of Outlaws October 27th and 28th.
Team 10c gears up for Nebraska Challenge
9/6/2017 - Saturday, September 9th the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team will return to Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Nebraska for a National Championship Racing Association / Nebraska 360 Challenge event. Currently leading both NCRA and 81 Speedway points standings, Campbell is looking to continue the string of good performances, coming off a 2nd place in NCRA competition last weekend.
After starting 7th in A Feature action Campbell was able to pick off the competition one by one before chasing down leader Don Droud Jr, but ran out of laps to make a pass happen. The Scott’s Well Service, Dan’s Cycle #10c put on a good show though, with slide jobs and lap traffic passes galore. “Jennings, Droud and I are all right there in the points standings, so while you aren’t thinking about it every moment, it does start to cross your mind at this point in the year where people are finishing and the moves you have to make to stay competitive with them. Moves you wouldn’t make at the beginning of the year have to be made” said Campbell.
With seven events at four different tracks left in the 2017 season, there is still a lot on the line for the six time 81 Speedway Champion. “It’s that time of year when people and equipment are wearing down, but I always seem to finish strong at the end of the season, so we are hoping to have some good luck at the end again.”
Jeremy Campbell Motorsports would like to thank Scott’s Well Service, Dan’s Cycle, Knoche Farms, JP Agronomy, Auto Masters, Hillsboro Racing Engines, Precise Racing Products, Diversified Machine Service, Hepfner Racing Products, Maxim Racing, Craig and Karen Chrispens and Butler Built Seats for the continued support.
8/16/2017 -Non-wing is back in Kansas this Friday, and the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team is ready to race! Rebounding from a disappointing Knoxville Nationals, where mechanical failures resulted in a DNS Saturday evening, Campbell is back and looking forward to completing with the traveling USAC Club Friday night, followed by a weekly show at 81 Speedway Saturday. The 10c team is currently leading local points, and hoping for a strong showing to get the season back on track.
"It's disappointing to spend so much time preparing for a event like Knoxville and then just have one thing after another go wrong," said Campbell. "But racing always has it's up's and down's, and it helped show us our weaknesses, and didn't really effect our points racing, so we are just trying to rebuild our program and get back to racing. We are thankful for all our of sponsors and fans for the support throughout this season, they really help keep us going!"
Team 10c Returns to Knoxville for first time since 2008
7/26/2017 - This August the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports Team will return to Knoxville Raceway for the first time since Campbell competed with the Rick Ferkel "0" 410 Sprint Car in 2008. "We are fast and consistent this year," said Campbell. "We've been throwing around coming back here for years and this seems like the year to do it. I'm looking forward to seeing what we can do against the big teams." Currently leading both NCRA and 81 Speedway local points, Campbell has captured 4 wins and 10 tops fives this year, most recently finishing 3rd in the ASCS vs NCRA Challenge.
