Jim Mehmen drives the #2M IMCA Stock Car.
He lives in Cedar Falls, IA. His home track is Independence Motor
He started racing in 1987 in the Enduro
Bomber Class at Marshalltown Speedway because a bunch of guys got together
and decided they could put some things together and race the entry level
class......Jim ended up the driver. His first win was in 1990 in the
Hobby Stock Class at Benton County Speedway.
The thrill of racing for Jim is the
competitiveness of the sport and the camaraderie of the drivers he races
with. They're like another family. His most exciting racing
moment was when he was leading the A Feature on lap #1 and spun
out.....then starting dead last out of 25 cars and driving back to the 2nd
spot........what a great night! He's most proud of his family's
support and great people that help you at the track when your broke or
busted up. The make sure they help you in any way to get you back on
Jeff Gordon, Greg Kastli, and Jeff
Aikey are Jim's racing heroes.
Of racing, Jim says, "This sport is many
hours of dedication of friends and family and it's not just taking the
windows out and throwing on a helmet. It's more than that...try it,
you'll like it!".
