The Ohio race track was not looking good either, after days of rain the Sharon Speedway was also mud track. The promoters however, brought in a helicopter to hover less than 10 feet above the track to speed up the drying process. After three hours of slow laps via helicopter and tractor work the race was able to start.

Jeremy Campbell uses K&N Engineering products. “K&N filters have made a difference on our engine’s performance this season,” said Katie Schroeder of Jeremy Campbell Motorsports. “We are either covered in dust or mud and going from one extreme to the other. The one constant is K&N keeps the dirt out and protects our engines from these extreme conditions.”

The race at Sharon Speedway was supposed to be Day 2 of the Commonwealth Clash, $50,000 to win Challenge. Since Lernerville was a bust, the option to start last and try to win from the back was given to Donny Schatz. He accepted, and the Sharon Speedway race counted as even points for all drivers.

Campbell started 7th in the A feature after transferring from his heat and finishing 7th in the new one dash race format. Campbell surged to the front and was running second, hot on the trail of leader Brooke Tatnell. When it was all over, Campbell ended with a solid fourth place.

“We had a great run at Sharon and it looks like we are finally going to get away from the rain and start racing more,” said Campbell. “It’s hard to get into a grove when you have a lot of rainouts, but I’m felling good going into the next couple of weeks.”

The team is headed to Charlotte, North Carolina to race at The Dirt Track at Lowe’s motor Speedway. “We’ve been down at the Penske Technologies Wind Tunnel working on the cars,” said Campbell. “The guys have been working with the K&N Filters and everything looks ready for what should be a great showing Wednesday at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.”
