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.
The 2019 JCM team is supported by marketing partners including Scott’s Well Service, Dan’s Cycle, Knoche Farms, Knoche Transport, Mel Hambelton Ford Racing, BEPC, Maxim Chassis and many other long time industry and local sponsors.
