 Tom Campbell


Tom Campbell drives the #31c Modified Class car.  His home track is I-30 Speedway but he can also be found racing at Beebe Speedway, Murphysboro Speedway and tracks in OK, MS and TX. 

Team members helping Tom are:  Son-in-law - Todd White, Scott & Clay Brown.

Tom started racing in 1963 in the 6 Cylinder Class at I-30 Speedway to have fun.  He didn't race on the street, but he did take his motor out of his '57 every week to put it in the race car, racing on weekends.  Then he'd put it back in his street car for the week!  Career highlights include numerous Feature wins and Championships, 3 years in a row at Beebe Speedway.  He's raced against great drivers like Mark Martin, Wayne Brooks and Tommy Rolland.

The thrill of racing for Tom is the competition and doing it his way.  "The Poor Boy racing against the money!".  His most exciting racing moment was qualifying for the Nationals at Boone IA racing against 365 cars.  He's most proud of being competitive and helping others.  And, he's mellowed a little over the years!

Tom's racing hero is Mark Martin.

Of racing, Tom says, "It isn't always profitable.  You could dig a hole in your back yard and throw your money into a bottomless pit.  However, it is still fun and I like racing against the young guys!".
