Jeremy Clements is used to fighting uphill battles. The Spartanburg, SC native has long competed against some of NASCAR’s power organizations by running full time on the Xfinity Series with his single-car operation run out of his family’s Dirt Late Model racing engine shop. And now, the 35-year-old racer faces another challenge after it was announced that Jeremy Clements Racing and longtime sponsor Repairables.com are parting ways.
JCR and Repairables.com have been together for ten years and have seen their share of success as a pairing. Clements has compiled 23 top-ten Xfinity finishes over the course of his career, including a victory in the 2017 Johnsonville 180 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, WI.
Despite racing against organizations such as Team Penske, Stewart-Haas Racing, Richard Childress Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing on a regular basis, Clements has finished within the top-15 of the NASCAR Xfinity Series standings for seven consecutive seasons and nine of the past ten campaigns. The No. 51 Chevrolet made the playoffs for that series in 2017.
Clements stated his appreciation to Repairables.com owner Brad Meyer for their years together and the support his company has offered. “It has been an amazing 10 year run with Brad Meyer and his Repairables.com team and I will be forever grateful for what they have done for me and JCR,” the driver said in remarks published to Jayski.com. “I wish Brad and Karen and the whole Repairables.com team the best in the future.”
Clements has scored one top-5 and four top-10 finishes to date in the 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series season. He currently ranks 13th in the standings, having just missed out on another playoff run.
