The Thompson family has been racing in California for over 50 years.  Jerry raced from 1965 to
1987 in the Hard Top and Super Modified divisions at historic tracks such as Kearney Bowl, Clovis
Speedway, and Madera Speedway winning well over 50 races in his career.  Jerry also won the last
Track Championship before the closing of Clovis Speedway in 1976 and has been inducted in the
Kearney Bowl Hall of Fame.

The only one of those tracks still in existence is Madera Speedway and the Thompson Family is
the only one who has had a member driving there every year since it opened in 1972.  Jerry raced
there from 1972 - 1987 and Rick or Kevin Thompson have raced there every year since.

Rick and Kevin Thompson are still driving at Madera Speedway.  You should come by to watch on
a Saturday Night and stop by and say hi.

the 200 lap Enduro Stock Car Division.  After a few
years he moved up to the Toyota Sedans.  Rick
won many races in that class and had some good

to move up to bigger and better things.

Jerry Thompson began his
racing career in 1965 at
Kearney Bowl Speedway in
Fresno California.  In only
his second year he began
winning Semi-Main Events
at both Kearney Bowl and
Clovis Speedways.  In 1967
Jerry Captured the Crown
of Kearney Bowl Semi-King.
  On August 8th,1969 Jerry won
his first Feature Main-Event at
Kearney Bowl beating some of
the most famous drivers in
California such as Al Pombo,
Howard Kaeding and Bill Scott.
He backed it up with another win
at Kearney the following week.
1969 turned out to be a banner
year for Jerry as he finished the
Championships 3rd at Clovis, 4th
at Kearney Bowl, and 7th at San
Jose Speedway's; giving him
2nd in the overall Nascar State
of California Points
Championship! Jerry was also
awarded Nascar Super
Modifieds' Most Improved
Driver!   
 
1976 was Jerry's best year
in racing.  He raced at both
Madera and Clovis
Speedways, making it to
the final race of the season
leading the points for both
tracks!   Unfortunately both
Madera and Clovis had
their Championship race on
the same night.  Jerry had
to choose which track he
wanted to win the
Championship for.  He
chose Clovis Speedway
because of his love for dirt
racing.  Jerry ended up
being the last Champion of
Clovis Speedway as it
closed for good that year.
In 1977 the Thompson
team raced mostly at
Madera Speedway ending
up 2nd in the Nascar State
Points Championship.
The 1980's brought a lot
of changes in Super
Modified racing.  The
cars changed from
inexpensive, build it your
self Hard-Tops to the
850+ hp, $35,000 - $50,000
cars of today.  Jerry stuck
with the sport he loved,
even as an underdog,
until 1986.  
Even though he lacked
the sponsors to really
compete he was able to
win races up to the end,
winning his last main
event in 1983 and his last
trophy dash in 1985.
