Brian Campbell Ready To Continue Winning Streak At ToledoCRA_admin
Wyoming, Michigan (April 8, 2015) – Brian Campbell’s 2014 racing season started off well enough in the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS. Two wins and
a second place finish in the first four races had the Wyoming, Michigan veteran sitting on top of the points standings in the early going. Then two hard crashes in
back to back races signified what the rest of the year would look like. A third crash in August forced him and the Lakeshore Motorsports Team to step back
and regroup for the rest of the season.
Now with 2014 just a distant memory, the 2015 campaign is here and the 36-year-old standout, along-with his Lakeshore Motorsports Team have refocused his
efforts and are ready for a redemption type of season. The first race of the new campaign is at a place where he has visited victory lane more than once, Toledo
Speedway. The fast 1/2 (0.500) mile high-banked paved oval located just south of the Michigan / Ohio state line in Toledo, Ohio serves as hosts of the 7-Up 100
Presented by Royal Truck & Trailer Sales.
“We’re excited to kick off the new season at Toledo. It’s one of my favorite race tracks and we’ve been fortunate enough to have enjoyed some success there. Especially the past three years,” Campbell stated. “We started last year off pretty strong and hopefully we can continue that stretch all season long. Midseason last year was not good for us. But we’re past that now and we’re ready to get this season started off right and continue to build from there. We have a solid team here and we’ve been together a long time in various forms. We’ll be just fine.” He smiled.
In addition to racing with the ARCA/CRA Super Series in 2015, Campbell also plans to frequent home more often at his home track of Berlin Raceway in the tracks Super Late Models division which consists of eight races on the tricky 7/16s (0.437) mile semi-banked paved oval.
