Team Kendall Racer of the Month - May 2013 - Matt Adams
Matt Adams of York Haven, Pa. - one of our newest members of Team Kendall - has quickly established a name for himself in the racing community, and we're pleased to name him our Racer of the Month for May. Althought Adams' career started just a few years ago, he has already taken hom a handful of wins and made his way up to the highly competitive Limited Late Model division.
"I've been going to the race track with my family since I was little but never had the time or funds to be a driver," said Adams. "After I got married and started a family, I decided it was time to live out my dream...and I'm so glad I did."
Adams began his career in 2007 in the Street Stop division, a novice level that allowed him to craft his skill and learn what it takes to become a strong driver. Soon after, he transitioned into the Limited Late Model division. Within his first season in the new division, Adams grabbed the Rookie of the Year titled and finished seventh out of 63 in points - proving that he was a tough competitor and gaining him recognition amongst his peers.
"Although I'm relatively new to racing, it didn't take long to realize what was needed to win - quality equipment and a solid crew team," Adams pointed out. "I've been using Kendall GT-1® High Performace Motor Oil with Liquid Titanium® protection additive since I started racing, and it's helped me tremendously because it serves as a nice protection - ensuring that my engine stays clean and at the right temperature."
Currently, Adams is competing with his 2013 Rocket Chassis Limited Late Model at his local track - Susquehanna Speedway Park in York Haven, Pa. Despite facing a few unforeseen part failures with the shock mount, steering rack and power steering line earlier in the season, Adams has managed to finish in the top 15 each race and is hopeful the remainder of the season will bring success. "My goal for 2013 is to be consistent and finish first in points for at least one race," he shared.
Marketer Michele Wright of Tri County Petroleum in Riddlesburg, Pa., added, "We welcome Matt ot the Team Kendall family and look forward to watching and supporting him all season long."
Congratulations, Matt! We are proud to call you our May Racer of the Month and wish you the best of luck in 2013.
