About Thompson

Racing History

Following a common thread among racing drivers, Brett’s interest in automotive sports began at an early age. His first race car was a 70’s era, locally purchased, Street Stock Camaro. The newly purchased Camaro was promptly towed to the Magic Valley Speedway. There Brett saw the track, and raced a car, for the first time. As a result of a performance that surprised everyone involved, Brett was drawn into an exciting new profession; that of a professional race car driver.

During the year, Thompson Motorsports made five additional starts at the Magic Valley Speedway, competing in the Street Stock Division. The following year, after multiple victories, Brett moved up to the Grand American Modified Series. Achieving a very high percentage victories and overall success in the next two years, it became obvious that it was time for yet another challenge. It would come in the form of the NASCAR Grand National West Series where, in his first race, Brett drove from a required last place start to a very impressive 7th place finish.

Today, Brett is an 10th year professional race car driver competing in two of the four NASCAR divisions: Camping World Grand National Cars and Craftsman Trucks.

Brett Thompson and the Thompson Motorsports Organization are consistently on the cutting edge of technology. In the fall of 2005, NASCAR announced that they would be allowing a new car and engine program for the NASCAR Grand National Series. This program encouraged all racers within the division to make a transition toward a NASCAR specification engine, and, to a new car body constructed from advanced composite materials. Brett was the first NASCAR Grand National Series driver to test the new NASCAR engine. He was invited to Lakeland, Florida in February 2006, where the new engine was being tested. Later in 2006, Thompson Motorsports became the first team to both complete, and make use of, the new composite bodies.

Thompson Motorsports operates out of a spacious, state of the art, facility in Jerome Idaho. There, Thompson Motorsports builds, services, and repairs their fleet of race cars and trucks. Thompson Motorsports employs their years of racing experience and technology to provide:

  • Race car fabrication.
  • Full repair and other services to motorsport competitors; both local and national.
  • Race car rentals, and support, to established competitors.
  • Race car parts through a dedicated parts department.
