Campbell rebuilding as 2019 season draws to a close

The 2019 race season threw everyone for a loop in the Midwest. With countless rainouts and low car counts, teams and series across the heartland have been scrambling to put together a solid season. The Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team has been no exception, and while the overall race count has been down, the team has traveling to new tracks and continued to focus on sponsor satisfaction.

“It’s been a rebuilding year for us for sure,” said Campbell. “Between NCRA and 81 Speedway we’ve have 12 Championships in nine years, so we knew we were coming to a point we would needed to change things up a bit to keep it interesting. Destroying two cars and motors in two years wasn’t in the plans, but we’ve also had some great highs, like the big non-wing win. We want to travel and continue to push ourselves, but helping however we can to keep sprint car racing around Wichita is also a priority. I think we’ve had the same issues everyone in racing has had; keeping the financial part balanced while trying to squeeze in as many races as Mother Nature will allow.”

With five events remaining on the 2019 JCM race schedule, the team has continued to see growth on the marketing side, with an ever expanding reach through online and social media sites. “We know that sponsors and marketing partners are looking for more than just a sticker on a car, and while we can’t control Mother Nature, we can continue to promote our supporters both online and at their events,” said Campbell.

The remaining 2019 events include :

September 20 Dodge City Raceway Dodge City, Kansas World of Outlaws

September 21   Dodge City Raceway Dodge City, Kansas World Of Outlaws

September 28 US 36 Raceway Osborn, MO ASCS with Nebraska 360’s

October 5            81 Speedway                      Park City, Kansas             81 Speedway Final

October 12 81 Speedway Park City, Kansas NCRA Final

Campbell strong in first visit to Lawton Speedway

Saturday the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team traveled to Lawton Speedway, in Lawton, Oklahoma with the ASCS Sooner Region. In Campbell’s first visit to the big ¼ mile he was able to adapt quickly to changing conditions and bring home a solid top 5 finish.

Campbell started on the outside front row of heat 2, and battled both the strong winds and Texas’s
John Carney until a late race mistake by Carney gave Campbell the opportunity he needed to clinch the heat race win.

Wayne Johnson and Campbell made up the front row of the feature event, and as the green flag dropped the rapidly approaching storm and strong wind gusts made for a tricky first few laps.

“The wind and heat combined and the track changed way quicker than we were expecting. The ASCS team did a great job of running our event through quickly so we got the show in, but I was really trying at the beginning to make something happen on the top, and with tonight’s track, it just wasn’t there” said Campbell.  

Once the field spread out Campbell began to pick his way back to the front, and was able to salvage a top five finish, coming to the checkers John Carney, Wayne Johnson, Steven Shebester and Kevin Ramey.

Next up for the 8-time 81 Speedway, 4-time NCRA Champion is a ASCS Warrior vs Sooner Region event at Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas Saturday September 24th.

Campbell Strong at 63rd annual Hutchinson Grand Nationals.

7/29/2019

The Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team always rolls into the Hutchinson Fairgrounds ½ mile on a mission, and with a history of strong performances and a past Nationals victory, this weekend was no exception. Campbell dominated Friday’s duel heat races, coming from 4th to 1st in the first event, and leading from green to checkered in the second.

Going into Saturday night as the high points car, Campbell and Oklahoma native Danny Jennings lined up on the front row. After a drag race to the 1st corner, Jennings was able to grab the lead. The two front runners put a half straightaway between themselves and third place, but Campbell was never able to recapture the lead.

“We knew Danny would be tough on the start, he has so many victories here and he is always strong” said Campbell. “We sure would have liked to take that trophy home, but it’s always good to load the car up in once piece, and we will back even hungrier for that first NCRA win of the year!”

Next up for the 8-time 81 Speedway, 4-time NCRA Champion is a NCRA event at 81 Speedway August 17th followed by an ASCS Sooner event at Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas August 24th.

Bad luck strikes Campbell in NCRA action

After a three week rain-imposed break from racing, the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team was back in action on Saturday, June 8th at 81 Speedway. Campbell started the night strong, easily winning his heat race by a straightaway.

Feature action saw Campbell starting 3rd, and after a few starts the real racing began, with Campbell reeling in leader Grady Chandler as the two set a blistering speed out front. A late race caution proved to be the beginning of the end for the #10c run though, as the car tightened up quickly. One lap later Campbell would miss the wicked fast high grove in turn two and come back onto the track in the middle of lap traffic. Two cars tangled in front of him and Campbell got turned into the back stretch wall, flipping down the track.

“This is the same time of year, same spot on the track and same sort of situation I got caught up in last year,” said Campbell. “It’s frustrating to be battling for a top spot and have it all fall away so quickly. We will rebuild though, and hopefully be back next week to redeem ourselves! The car was absolutely perfect tonight and felt the fastest we’ve been all year, we just need to get back to that!”

Next up for Jeremy Campbell Motorsports is a NCRA 360 event Sunday, June 16th at 81 Speedway.

JCM Battles Wet Conditions in Wichita Falls

5/14/2019 – JCM Battles Wet Conditions in Wichita Falls

Saturday, May 11th the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team made a first time appearance at water-logged Monarch Motor Speedway in Wichita Falls, Texas. The facility battled wet conditions all evening, with a 3 hour delayed start, and multiple competitors leaving before racing action began. The 10c team decided to stick in out, but Campbell tangled with the wall because of visibility issues during the heat race. Choosing to use his Champion provisional, Campbell bypassed the B and started scratch in the main event.  He began working his way towards the front, before handling issues caused by the conditions forced him to pull off.

“It’s not the way I wanted to represent NCRA, especially as the only team here from our group” said Campbell. “But I’m happy to make the journey here and hopefully help facilitate more events between our two series. Had the region not battled so much rain these last few weeks I think we would have put on a great show.”

Next up for Jeremy Campbell Motorsports is a community event with marketing partners Knoche Farms and Knoche Transport in Abbyville, Kansas followed by a NCRA 360 event May 26th at 81 Speedway.

The Jeremy Campbell Motorports team competed twice over the holiday weekend, traveling to Humboldt, Kansas for a NCRA / ASCS event, followed by a return to Lake Ozark Speedway for the first time since 2007 for their season opener event.

Friday Campbell struggled early in the evening, and had to qualify for the main event through the B Feature. Starting 19th in the A, he worked his way through traffic and carnage to finish 8th, earning the Hard Charger award for the evening.

Saturday’s LOS opener saw 25 cars in attendance, with Campbell again starting at the back of the heat race. This time the #10c machine was on a rail, picking through traffic and coming from the tail to win heat race #1. As high points car for the evening, Campbell started on the pole of the main event. Campbell would battle with the #23 of Seth Bergman and the #35M of Jonathon Cornell, finishing 3rd in the feature.

“It’s always great to travel and be successful on the road,” said Campbell. “Sometimes you get too comfortable at your home track, and you have to continue to push yourself to be better.

Next up on the schedule for Jeremy Campbell Motorsports is a return to the Hutchinson Fairgrounds with the NCRA series on Saturday, April 27th.

Rain wins out over Jeremy Campbell Motorsports / NCRA Season Opener.

With $14,000 on the line Saturday night at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas, the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports looked to start off 2019 with a bang!

Friday night’s preliminary marked the teams first appearance of 2019, and while a 4th place finish in heat race action put  Campbell into the B, he transferred  easily into the main event, setting up a 16th place starting position.

Campbell was able to capitalize on a few early mistakes by other teams to work his way up to an 8th place finish.

Saturday’s weather forecast showed consistent heavy rain chances throughout the night, and the officials at 81 Speedway made the decision to cancel the night’s event.

Off Season Craziness

Off Season Craziness!

The first week of off season it always stretches out in front of you for what seems like forever, then suddenly it’s March and you are scrambling! We had a busy winter with holidays, family adventures, and school programs. In January we celebrated the team’s EIGHTH 81 Speedway Championship and FOURTH NCRA Championship. We are so thankful for all of our friends, family and sponsors that help make this all possible.

In January Jeremy got his first shot at the famed Chili Bowl. The car had engine problems all weekend so unfortunately it wasn’t a great trip, but it definitely left him hungry to return and get more seat time!

The frame got sent off to BEPC Powder coating for a refresh on that signature green. They always do a great job, and everything sure pops on the racetrack.

Jeremy’s got a new suit and new helmet in the works, and we are working on new T-Shirts right now! It’s always exciting to get new merch and we sure hope you like what R & R comes up with!

Anything you want to see from behind the scenes at Jeremy Campbell Motorsports? Be sure to let us know!
