Jeremy Spoonmore Up for the Challenge

Attention MIS Fans:  Here Comes Jeremy Spoonmore

by John Wells

Second generation driver Jeremy Spoonmore of Somonauk, Illinois, is hoping his success from 2012 carries over to the 2013 racing season. Last year he won the championship in the very competitive Mid American Stock Car Series and hopes that success will carry over to the upcoming campaign.

“My first goal is to win another Mid American championship and my second goal is to try and make and finish all four Super Late Model Triple Crown Challenge races at Madison,”

Even though his super late model experience at Madison has been limited to a few races, he has wheeled his way to victory lane on several occasions.  “My best memories at Madison are winning something like six or seven times in the Mid Am / Midwest Sportsman divisions,” said Spoonmore.

 “I love the banking of the track and all of the speed.  Two things I’ve learned from racing in the Mid Am series there is you have to have a lot of patience and you need to save your brakes.,” he added.

Jason Tyler of MIS had this to say about Spoonmore:  “He seems to always be tough here when he’s run with the Mid Ams…always a threat to win.  He’s a competitor and the success he’s had will carry over to the Triple Crown Challenge.”

Spoonmore has been around racing nearly all of his life as his father raced for twenty-one years.  The younger Spoonmore followed in his footsteps by racing dirt late models starting when he was fourteen years old and picked up his first career feature win at Sycamore Speedway.  His first win on asphalt came at Wisconsin International Raceway in the Mid Am series several years later.

His race team consists of crew chief Randy Aubart, crew members Joe Spoonmore and Travis Williams and his spotter Garland Spoonmore.  His sponors are Spoonmore Racing, Acorn Cabinetry, and Tiry’s Race Engines.

“None of this would be possible without the support of my family,” he added.

If he wasn’t driving, Spoonmore would stay pretty close to the track.  “If I did not drive I would probably like to still be involved in racing.  I would like to be a crew chief because the geometry of race cars and how they work is very interesting to me and seems like a cool challenge.”

Fans can see the #22 car of Spoonmore all summer long as part of the Super Late Model Triple Crown Challenge.
