Smokin' Joe's Racing





Quoted from Jimmy Spencer's Fan Club Newsletter
Summer, 1996

"Is the Smokin' Joe's Team smokin', or what? I can't even begin to tell you just how proud I am of our performance so far in 1996. I know that Travis Carter and the guys on the crew are pumped up also. I honestly feel that I'm in the best position of my Winston Cup career in terms of having a car that will consistently run up front week-in and week-out. It's a lot like the old days in the Modifieds when I felt like we had a legitimate shot at winning every time we unloaded the car.

I knew we had "turned the corner" when we ran so well at Daytona. As you'll recall, we finished 10th in our Twin 125 Qualifier and 11th in the Daytona 500. Then, we had that phenomenal run at Rockingham. I truly believe that we would have won that race had it not been for burning a piston in the engine. But it was great to be a solid threat to win again. That does so much for a driver's mental attitude.

Of course, we had a rough day at Richmond. We never really got the chassis dialed-in to the race track. I guess you have to take the bad with the good. Anyhow, we were back in stride at Atlanta with solid seventh-placing showing.

The 1996 season could be the great "turnaround" for Pennsylvanian Jimmy Spencer.

Again paired with car owner Travis Carter and sponsor Camel for 1996, Spencer expects to be back at the front of the field throught the season. The 1995 season was a struggle for the team; Spencer was unable to make the field for the season-opening Daytona 500, which put the team in a hole right from the start. In 42nd place in the point standings following the next event, at Rockingham, the team never really recovered from that season-opening bodyblow.

This year marks Jimmy's sixth full season at the NASCAR Winston Cup level; it could be his best. He has the ability to join the upper echelon of Cup competitors and promises to apply the same determination to the task with which he produced his Modified championships. He moved to the Busch Series Grand National Division in 1988 and has driven for Buddy Baker and Bobby Allison in addition to his stints with Carter and Johnson. During his brief career, he has won more than $2.4 million at the Cup level.

Racing was a logical choice for Jimmy when it came time for career decisions. His dad, Ed, was a longtime short-track terror in the Northeast and his brother, Paul, currently races asphalt modifieds. Jimmy and his wife Pat live in Mooresville, NC, near Charlotte, with their children James and Katrina.
