Jeff Steckler, Crew Member
   

Jeff Steckler was born in Bismarck, ND, raised on a dairy/grain farm in Elgin, ND. On the farm, Jeff had to know how to fix anything and everything. Jeff learned many mechanical abilities on that old John Deere. He attended grades K-12 in the same building in the metropolis of Elgin (population of 900 during the week and almost 1,200 on the weekend). Jeff completed an Associates degree in Occupational Therapy at the Academy of Health Sciences in San Antonio, TX. He also went through a nursing and respiratory therapy program at another college. Jeff is now the owner and business operator of a physical rehabilitation center in Modesto, CA. www.progressivetherapy.com

Jeff’s auto racing history started when his dad gave him the "old" family car when he was just 14. It was a two-door 1972 Chevelle. Jeff started out doing the quarter mile drag racing stuff, working up through the local ranks. After moving back to California in 1990, he and a friend built up an Enduro car. Jeff was instantly hooked on circle track racing.

After Enduro racing, Jeff raced at Stockton 99 Speedway. He finished 16th in points, only making 1/3 of the races. He sold that car to the friend who got him into racing in the first place, and became the team's (Sons of Thunder Motorsports) Crew Chief. He did that for 3 years. Next, Jeff bought an American Race Truck. First year out, he finished 4th in the points. He stayed in the top-ten in points all three seasons. He sold the race truck and found a great home with Campbell Racing as the Crew Chief.

Next, Jeff couldn't stay away from behind the wheel, so he bought an American Race Truck. First year out, he finished 4th in the points. He stayed in the top-ten in points all three seasons, but as usual with any racing, he ran out of time and money. He sold the race truck and found a great home with Campbell Racing as the Crew Chief.

Jeff has been married for 20 years to a beautiful woman, Melissa, and has 4 wonderful children. Without her support and understanding, he would not be able to go racing. The most important thing in Jeff’s life is his walk with Jesus. Jeff is quite involved with the leadership at his local church, First Baptist of Modesto. www.fbcmodesto.com He is a member of the local Rotary club, the Modesto Chamber of Commerce and has served as committee chair.
