Behind the Scenes with Jeremy Lehrke

Jeremy Lehrke has been around racing since he was a child. His dad sold his show car to get a 1975 Chevy Vega Super Pro/Super Street that Jeremy started racing at sixteen years old. Jeremy eventually purchased a dragster and ran both cars for a while. After having more success in the dragster, he decided to sell the Vega in 2015. Since then, he has won the Division 5 Super Series Shootout Points Championship, the Midwest Drag Racers Association Sportsman Points Championship and several other super class and super pro wins.

Today, Jeremy and his wife, Carie, travel all over attending NHRA divisional and national events. In Denver, he also helped host over two hundred kids at the track that were on a summer camp field trip. He volunteered his time and car to show them how the car is supposed to work and explain a little about it so they had an idea of what they were seeing during the day.
