Jeff Locke

Jeff got into motorsports at an early age following his father to the track to work on the #27 Shea ISMA Super. By 1998, he followed his dream of working for a cup series team and moved to North Carolina.  His first job was working for Bessey Motorsports as a mechanic on Geoffrey Bodine’s team. In 2001, he moved to TN to work with Tony Lambert at Team Bristol with Kevin Grubb. He gained invaluable knowledge and experience working under Tony, an accomplished crew chief.

When Team Bristol closed its doors 2003, Jeff went on to work for Brewco Motorsports. He worked as a mechanic and front tire changer for the #37 of David Green. The team placed 2nd in Busch Series Points that year with 4 wins. 2004 brought many changes to the teams including a move for Jeff to the #27 of Johnny Sauter. The team had a successful year with multiple top 5 finishes. In 2005, Jeff was promoted to car chief for the #27 car for Greg Biffle. After an amazing year working with Greg, getting his first win as car chief in Phoenix, and getting the first ever Busch Series pole in Mexico with Jorge Goeters, Jeff decided to move home to NH to pursue his own racing dreams.

In 2006, Jeff acquired a 10 year old supermodified that he completely rebuilt. With the help of his crew chief Richard Witkum, his hard working crew members, and sponsor Locke Crane Services, LLC Jeff managed 5 wins and took home 4th place his first year in competitive racing. In 2008, Jeff won 2 features before an unfortunate accident sent him over the wall at Lee, completely totaling his car.

2009 was Jeff’s first year in the ISMA Supermodified Series. He was unkown to those who weren’t aware of his past career manning the wrenches on cars in the Busch Series. Jeff surprised many when he began showing up at ISMA shows with a new No. 37 big block. Surprise turned to shock when Jeff held off seven-time ISMA champ Russ Wood to win a feature at Ontario’s Delaware Speedway in only his sixth ISMA start.

Jeff and his crew had a a gdreat deal of success in the ISMA series. Jeff won two features, one at Sunset Speedway and one at Delaware Speedway. He finished top 10 in points for the year 3 times and top 5 in points for the year 3 times.

In 2017 Jeff made the decision to retire from racing and focus his efforts on Ryan and Chase.
