Jeff McClure (born January 22, 1967 in Harrisburg, North Carolina) is a former NASCAR driver, having racing multiple years in all three major series.

Winston Cup Series[edit]

McClure only made one career start in NASCAR's elite series and it came in 1992 at the 1992 running of the Champion Spark Plug 400. He qualified the Jim Rosenblum Racing 39th at Michigan. He did finish the race, however, it was only a 31st-place finish.

Busch Series[edit]

McClure made his Busch debut in 1988, running his own #83 Oldsmobile in four races. His series debut came at Nazareth, falling out due to an engine failure. McClure's finishes improved drastically every race and by the race at Langley, McClure earned his best finish of the year in 18th. Also, his best start of the year ended up 12th at Myrtle Beach.

McClure made two starts in 1989. He finished 19th at Charlotte and 25th at Rockingham.

McClure had one start in 1990. He started 41st at Daytona, but was caught up in a crash. However, McClure still managed 22nd and the season opener at Daytona would prove to be his only 1990 start.

McClure returned after a six-year hiatus in 1996, running three races for Moy Racing. After finishing 26th and 31st, McClure finished 16th at the Milwaukee Mile. It would prove to be his best career finish in the series.

McClure was then invited back for ten races in 1997 for Moy. McClure's team struggled in his starts. His best start was 32nd and best finish was 23rd at Las Vegas. The poor results can be explained to his five DNFs in ten starts.

Craftsman Truck Series[edit]

McClure reappeared on the NASCAR scene in 2000, running three CTS races for Albernaz Racing. He started 29th and finished 26th at Portland. His next start at Texas proved to be his best. He was 21st in that race. At Nazareth, McClure earned his best career start of 28th and looked to be in good shape for bettering his previous starts. However, a late engine failure ended his CTS career in 23rd.

McClure has not raced in major NASCAR since that Nazareth start in 2000.
