BACKGROUND:
Mention the name Jeff Babcock and two things come to mind: He loves to race and he loves to win.  That was all evident at the early of age of three when he would crawl into his Dad’s racecar and refuse to get back out.

Jeff gained a large amount of racing knowledge by working side by side with this Dad out in the family shop every night as a kid. He was given the opportunity to put that knowledge to work at the age of 15, when his Dad allowed him to make his first Stock Car start at Fremont Speedway.

Jeff would make a handful of starts over the next three years, and would eventually pick up his first career win in 1999, at the age of 19.  It was that same year Babcock would begin racing Stock Cars on a weekly basis.

WORK ETHIC:
Babcock is quick to point out that work ethic and determination play a large role in the success of his racing career.  During his first full racing season in 1999, he started an apprenticeship to become a millwright that same year.  He quickly learned what it took to maintain a racecar and a full-time job.

VERSATILITY:
Since his first full season of Stock Car racing in 1999, Jeff has shown an uncanny ability to successfully transition to other types of racecars.  He has raced Dirt Late Models, Sprint Cars, and Modifieds to go along with the aforementioned Stock Cars.  In 2013, he will make his first career start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.  Victories have never been hard to find when Babcock is behind the wheel.  He has placed his name in the win column 159 times (as of 8/29/13), which includes a mind-boggling 28 victories in 2009.
