Ups and Downs Define World of Outlaws Weekend for Jeremy Campbell

It was a bittersweet weekend for the Jeremy Campbell Motorsports team. On the positive side Campbell had a strong showing in his first ever Kings Royal start at Eldora Speedway; on the negative side Campbell battered a considerable amount of equipment.

World of Outlaws racer Campbell ran very well in his heat race and was working his way through A Feature traffic when he got into a rut and flipped. Both Campbell and the car were hurt but they were ready to race the next day on the high-banked, high-speed half-mile oval.

Campbell uses K&N Engineering Air and Oil Filters on his sprint car. “The K&N Products protect my engine,” said Campbell. “With all the debris on the field the K&N Filters keep the dirt out.”

More than 50 cars were on hand at The Knight Before the Kings Royal. Campbell struggled and started in the C Feature. A car broke in front of him and Campbell went up and over again for back to back DNFs (did not finish).

On Saturday Campbell was on the front row of the heat race and transferred directly to the A Feature for his first Kings Royal. Working his way forward in the feature he was lapped right before a caution which locked him into position. Campbell finished 13th.
“I really felt like we had a stronger car than 13th,” Campbell said. “With the luck we’ve had this weekend we’ll take thirteen and try harder next week. We have too many races ahead of us to dwell on the ones that are over.”

Because the Kings Royal is a special format, the race does not count toward the March to the Mean 15. The World of Outlaws action continues Tuesday at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania. Next are the Williams Grove Summer Nationals Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
