Tracey Chambers

Type of Racing: Stock Car

Race Series: NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series

Introduction: Growing up in a racing family, where her father was a former go-cart winner and was an active Late Model crew chief, Tracey attended most races at Orange County Speedway as a little girl. Her brother Mike soon started racing in go-carts and then moved to stockcars. After being around racing her whole life, it was only natural for Tracey to decide she wanted to race as well.

In 1998, Tracey decided to try her hand at driving competitively at the age of 16. After spending the winter helping to build a Pure Stock Four-Cylinder Racecar, Tracey strapped into the driver's seat at the youthful age of 17. Tracey brought the car home to a third place finish that night, and was hooked from then on. That season proved to be a success, as Tracey earned eight runner-up finishes and ten top threes out of ten starts. She secured the third position in the point?s race, even after missing the first race of the season due to the car not being race ready.

Tracey decided she was ready for the next step, so she decided to make the jump to the Modified 4-Cylinder Division in 2000. After adjusting to a car that was a couple of seconds quicker on the track, Tracey collected four top fives and eleven top tens out of 13 starts. She earned co-rookie of the year honors, as well as being tied for fifth in the season rankings. Tracey was also honored as the recipient of the Bobby Gullie Memorial Award for Sportsmanship in the Modified Four-Cylinder Division. 2001 proved to be a banner year for Tracey. She racked up seven pole positions and two wins, becoming the first female to win in open competition at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, NC. She placed in the top two six times and in the top three eight times. She cracked into the top five ten times and never finished less than sixth. She narrowly missed capturing her first championship by a mere four points, after leading in points for over half of the season. The track named Tracey the 2001 "Mack Lamm Sportsmanship Award" winner at the awards banquet.

With so much success, Tracey felt the need for a greater challenge and decided to step up to the Limited Sportsman Division. The year was a steep learning curve, as Tracey had to adjust to a car weighing over 1300 lbs. more with twice as much horsepower. Bad luck was a factor early in the season, as she missed approximately four races due to the car not being ready and then having two blown engines. Once into the season, she came home with one top five and five top tens, while rounding the year out eighth in the final points standings and runner-up for Rookie of the Year honors. Tracey was also the runner-up for the "Most Popular Driver Award" for the Limited Sportsman Division, after a competitive battle for it with the eventual champion of the division. In 2003, Tracey collected one top three, four top fives, and eleven top tens in fifteen starts in the highly competitive Limited Sportsman Division at Orange County Speedway. This earned her the eighth position in the final points standings. She also served as a spotter for her brother's Late Model Stock Car Team at Orange County Speedway, as well as tested his back-up car.

Current Season: In 2004, Tracey plans on making the move up to the Late Model Stock Car Division, running at various tracks throughout the southeast.

Racing Goals: Tracey hopes to advance up the autoracing ladder, securing success at every step. In the future, she hopes to race a touring series, such as ASA or Hooters Pro Cup, eventually leading her to the upper echelons of NASCAR. Her dream is to one day race competitively on NASCAR's Nextel Cup Series.

Personal: Her dream is to one day race competitively on NASCAR's Nextel Cup Series.

Special Thanks to: Tracey would like to give a very special thank you to her parents, Tim and Tammy, her brother Mike, her grandparents, and everyone who has helped in her racing career. Tracey knows that without all of the support and dedication from them, she wouldn't be where she is today.
