Jeremy Campbell finished the 2014 race season with two more sprint car championships under his belt, once again dominating the Kansas sprint car scene. Despite battling motor problems throughout the season, Campbell recorded his second National Championship Auto Racing championship as well. “I had more DNF’s this season than I’ve had in a long time, so it was really a rebuilding year for me. I stepped away from the 305 sprint cars to focus on my family and winning the 360 NCRA championship. It came together in the end for us, but it wasn’t a strong year for our team. We’ve got a great start on what to work on for next year,” Campbell said.
The JCM team started the season with a new Maxim frame, and while Campbell has been with Maxim Racing for more than 10 years it still presented some challenges. Campbell explains “This is the first year since moving from 410 sprint cars to 360’s that I’ve really focused on investing money into growing my race team. I’ve been racing a car that was eight years old, and it worked great, but to grow I knew I needed to add another car to my team. We started 2014 completely rebuilding. At the end of the year we also purchased a new trailer to allow us to carry more parts and travel more. I blew up our strongest motor this season, so we ended up purchasing a used one that blew up immediately as well, so I finished out the season on a borrowed engine. This off-season is really going to keep Dwight, my father-in-law, who builds our engines, really busy, but to start 2015 with two motors and two cars will be great.”
Part of the success of Jeremy Campbell Motorsports has been the long-term support of Campbell’s industry sponsors along with the addition of loyal sponsors of Campbell’s father-in-law’s team. 2015 will be the 5th year for Dan’s Cycle, Radio Shack of Derby, Hillsboro Race Engines and Scott’s Well Service. Companies like Maxim Racing, Hepfner Racing Products, ButlerBuilt Seats and Speedway Motors have been with Campbell the majority of his 14-year sprint car career, and sponsors that have joined more recently, like AutoMasters, Precise Racing and Plenert Excavating have continued to help the team grow.
Looking forward to 2015 the 10c team will return to the NCRA Sprint Car Series, along with 81 Speedway events, while also looking for more opportunities to travel. For more information visit www.jeremycampbell.net or find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/campbell10c.
