SPOTLIGHT ON SPEED: JEREMY CHAMBERS

SPOTLIGHT ON SPEED: JEREMY CHAMBERS

Now in his 24th year of stock car racing, the 2014 season has been one of change — and considerable success — for Parsons’ Jeremy Chambers.

After running several seasons in the B Mod division in Heartland Park Topeka’s Saturday Showdown dirt track series, Chambers joined forces with Topekan Jim Gruber and has switched to the Modified class this season.

There’s no arguing with the results, with the 41-year-old Chambers leading the points at both Heartland Park and Humboldt Speedway and ranking fourth in the United States Racing Association national standings.

“We spent the last three years racing our own equipment in the B Mod division and this year I started driving for Jim Gruber,” Chambers said. “We just kind of started back into the A Mod thing and we’ve had a pretty successful year by most people’s standards.

“We’ve had four feature wins now and have been running real consistent. That’s kind of what it takes to run good in the points.”

Chambers is quick to admit that teaming with Gruber and the Gruber family has been a big key to his success.

“It kind of started out last year,” Chambers said. “He asked me one night right at the end of the year if I wanted to drive his car. We drove it and honestly didn’t even do that well, but we got to talking over the winter and decided we wanted to try to race together.

“I keep the equipment here in Parsons and work on it during the week and (Gruber) comes to the races and gives us the support and things we need to keep racing with. Really their whole family has stepped up and made this all possible. It’s very much a family and team thing going on here. We have some good sponsors, too, who have stepped up and helped us this year.”

Over the years racing for points hasn’t been a focus for Chambers, but with a chance to win a couple of championships this season, that philosophy has changed.

“My philosophy on points has always been to just race and kind of see how it shakes out at the end,” Chambers said. “If we’re close we’ll go for it.

“We’ve probably kind of got ourselves boxed in a little bit this year to try to go ahead and finish them out.”

Chambers, who owns and operates a steel fabrication business, will also try to do everything he can to make a run at the national USRA championship, but would be satisfied with a solid top-10 finish.

“We were actually leading the national points for a few weeks and that was pretty exciting,”

he said. “We’ve fallen off a little bit and haven’t been as consistent but we’re getting back there.

“What we’ve really got to do to stay up in the top five in the national points is we need to get some more wins and that’s our goal right now, to win as many races as we can between now and the end of the year.”
