Although Adams is still the new kid in class when it comes to sprint car racing, he does have many years of experience in the subject of racing. He began his racing career at the age of 4, with the KC Pro West Racing circuit, driving a Kitty Kat and 120 snowmobile on Le Mans and ice oval tracks. He also grew up watching current driver, Mark Dobmeier, race and knew that he would jump at the chance to race a sprint car if it was ever presented to him.
Adams learned quickly what a time consuming hobby racing can be. He has had to give up playing football as the games started to conflict with race nights. He is able to maintain his involvement in other school activities though, including Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), student council and basketball. His homework each night also consists of working on the sprint car and helping out on the family farm. Adams commented that his full schedule "makes for some late nights and quick mornings!"
Adams' race team is supported by several alumni of the sport. It consists of pit crew chief, Ethan Thompson, and crew members; Scott Peterson, Ryan Sondrol, Greg Breidenbach and Tim Litzinger. Adams commented that he is grateful to Thompson for "setting up a good car for me each week, sharing his knowledge on the different lines on the track and most of all having patience with me." Adams is hoping to apply that knowledge and improve upon his race report card when he returns to Greenbush Racepark this Saturday. Adams finished 13th in the June NOSA race hosted there.
"I have learned that everything can't be done overnight. It takes a lot of time and patience to turn the laps that you want to turn. I now realize that most of the racers that I run with weekly have been racing for years, and they know what they are doing. They are some of the best out there and each week I am trying to learn from them."
Adams is currently ranked 9th in NOSA points. He plans on running the remaining NOSA shows until the bell rings on the 2013 season.
Adams would like to thank his father, Dave Adams, for giving him the opportunity to race and for his support at the track every week. He also would like to recognize the community and fans for their support, including CJN Motorsports for the help they have offered and for making the sport even more fun.
