Spieker Wins 10th Career Track Title

Crowned Iowa State, Adams County Speedway Champ

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 27, 2015) – Chris Spieker’s supurb 2014 performance earned a ninth Adams County Speedway track championship and his first NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Iowa state crown.

It was the Massena, Iowa, native’s 10th NASCAR track title overall. In addition to his Adams County haul, he also won at I-80 Speedway in 2004.

“It’s a gratifying experience,” Spieker said. “I started racing in the stock car division and when I decided to move to the late model division, some people said I wouldn’t be able to compete at that level. I showed them I could.

“It’s an honor to be the track champion. I’m now tied for the most champion titles.”

This season was a little different for the 44-year-old compared to his previous championship campaigns in the Coors Light Late Model division.

“This season was a little more stressful,” said Spieker. “I had a few nights with bad luck. It came down to the last night between Jason O’Brien and me. I knew whoever finished ahead would win. I was fortunate enough to win the race.”

The final showdown between O’Brien and Spieker was the most memorable race of his season.

“There was so much on the line,” Spieker said. “We started off side by side in row five. By Lap 6 I had moved into the lead with him right behind me. I held the lead for about ten laps until contact was made coming out of Turn 2 causing me to spin and to bring out the caution flag

“We both got sent to the back, within a couple laps we were back in the front battling it out. I was able to get the job done and pull through with the win.” 

Spieker is no stranger to Adams County’s half-mile dirt oval.

 “I’ve been around racing my whole life,” said Spieker. “I was less than two weeks old when I attended my first race with my mom. My dad was a crew chief for various cars while I was growing up and my interest grew the older I got. I started racing in ’91 when I was 21 and I’ve been at it ever since. This season will be my 25th season.”

This season’s plans are pretty straight-forward for Spieker and his team.

“I want to defend my title,” Spieker said. “I hope to go out there and just win races and keep my title as the Adams County Speedway track champion.”

Spieker credits his family and crew for his success on the track and his Adams County and Iowa State champion titles.

“Without them, I wouldn’t be here,” said Spieker. “My brother, David, who’s the owner and crew chief and his wife, Beth, without them it wouldn’t be possible. My crew Will and Tim Erikson and Justin and Tom Schafer. And my biggest support system, my wife Shana and our kids Allison, Marissa and Loudon.”
