Berwick, PA (10/27/2016)- Scott Adams of Lake Ariel, PA had has a very busy racing schedule throughout this season. The first event on his schedule kicked off in January and his season wrapped up just two weeks ago at Evergreen Raceway in St; Johns, PA. Racing multiple divisions up and down the eastern United States, Adams visited a variety of tracks and went to victory lane on several occasions in his #68 WARRANT/FireHouse Music Monte Carlo.
“It’s been a great year”, noted the veteran driver in his eleventh year of competition.
“As soon a spring rolled around we went to Evergreen Raceway and won. From there we traveled around a bit, including Mahoning Valley Speedway (Lehighton, PA), Chemung Speedrome (Chemung, NY) and Oswego Speedway (Oswego, NY).”
Following his first win of the season, Adams and his team struggled, but with his dedicated team, they never gave up and grew stronger to overcome their obstacles.
“It all began to turn around by mid season”, he noted.
“We took an open competition show win and then finished ninth at Chemung. We went to the Race of Champions in Oswego and finished eighth and then grabbed another win at Evergreen.”
Speaking of Evergreen, Adams had always seemed to have bad luck at the track’s season ending, big money show called “King of the Green”. This season was no different, as Adams felt like he brought a knife to a gunfight because he was battling brake issues all day long.
“We had to race against 27 other guys that night and had no brake at all. It was a really long day and the main event has held at night. I thought the brake problem was fixed, but as I entered turn one on the first lap the pedal went to the floor. I just held on and worked the throttle.”
When the checkers flew, Adams came across the strip in the fourth spot behind race winner CJ Lehman of Long Island, NY.
“I couldn’t believe the finish that we had in a show that always bit us. I thought that I was doomed from the start but the car was really responsive. Overall, it was a great year and we learned a lot, plus finished third in points at Evergreen, even though we missed a show.”
Typically, good racers share good company, and Adams is thrilled to be associated with the bands WARRANT and FireHouse. He reseives additional support from Wheels Bar & Grill, Himmer Graphics, Shultz Fabrication, NJB Trucking, MD Adams Winery, S&D Bodyline, Marchets Garage and Tyler Jett Motorsports Marketing.
