1. What is your role on the crew?

I’m the tire guy…I make sure whatever tire pressures or staggers jonboy wants is right and ready for practice, qualifying, and race. I treat those tires like my they’re my kids….no one messes with em! Tires are a huge key factor in racing…very important and a huge responsibility. I feel privileged for him to trust me and my judgment to handle tires.

2. At what point did you get in to racing/become a racing fan?

I’ve been into racing with my dad since I was little….taking me to race museums and to the speedway every chance we got. I was/am a big Richard Petty fan. I have been going to the stadium for close to the last decade…but as a crew member for the last 5 years. I love ANY type of racing…from modifieds to racing handicapped motor scooters in Walmart back in the day…I’ll race just about anything!

3. How did you link up with the Jonathan Brown crew?

I actually got invited to help out his brother bobo last year in the sportsman division…then through him I met jonboy who only raced off and on randomly last year until this year full time when he dubbed me to be his tire guy..we’ve been good buddies on and off the track ever since.

4. When you are not at the race track, what are you doing?

When I’m not at the track I’m either at the shop working on Harley’s or at the motocross track ripping up dirt…I don’t drink or smoke so going out isn’t my thing…some good pizza and a cruise on a Harley is my fix.

Meet The Crew: Greg Lambert

1. What is your role on the crew?

Essentially, I do what is asked of me. If they need a tool, I go get it, if they need an extra hand, I lend it. During practices, I am checking tire temps and brake temps. I feel that I am there when I am needed and hopefully out of the way when I am not.

2. At what point did you get in to racing/become a racing fan?

Well, that question has a fairly long answer. I lived in Kannapolis NC, which is the home of Dale Earnhardt Sr. But, never once did I go to a race, or a race track or anything like that. Then I met my wife, and she took me to my first ever race, it was at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Fast forward a few years, we meet Tony White, he talked me in to going to Bowman Gray Stadium and my wife was happy that he did. I listened to Tony spot for Jon Boy at my first ever BGS race, and I was hooked.

3. How did you link up with the Jonathan Brown crew?

Tony White actually, he introduced me to Jon Boy and the car owner at the time, and I started helping then, I haven’t helped him every year, but I do try to help when I can.

4. When you are not at the race track, what are you doing?

You can usually find me enthralled in some form of geekiness or working. I have been known to play a few video games, as well as read a few books. During the cooler parts of the year you will find me on my outside on my RZR.
