Concord, North Carolina [July 13, 2008]: This past week Lindsey Adams, who currently resides in Richardson, Texas, made a trip to Concord, North Carolina, to watch her first ASA Late Model Race and test a full sized stock car. Concord Motorsports Park hosted the Super-Sonic 100, the fourth race of the 2008 racing season for the ASALMS Southern Division contingent. Back in May, Adams was contacted by ASA car owner, Larry Varney, who caught up with her on DirecTV’s Hometown Heroes while she was being honored for her work with breast cancer awareness. Varney related to Lindsey by the work that she was doing and appreciated its value as his mother is a breast cancer survivor.
With the mutual connection of breast cancer awareness, Lindsey and LV Alliance teamed up to test an ASA Late Model with high hopes for Adams and her potential skill in a full sized stock car. Her ability was realized early on in the test at Concord Motorsports Park, a tricky ½ mile progressively banked, paved tri-oval, located Northeast of Charlotte in Concord, North Carolina.
“Concord Motorsports Park is a track where even the most accomplished of drivers have difficulty. We were very pleased with Lindsey’s performance and she exceeded our expectations,” commented Don Nugent of Trinity Marketing and Development. (Don and his wife, Emily, represent Adams and are in charge of her development program.)
The 116 car that Adams tested Sunday, was raced Saturday night in the Super-Sonic 100, by Landon Cassill, a development driver for Hendrick Motorsports. Cassill suffered a cracked wheel at the start of the race, but was saved by a caution and able to pit and replace the right front tire. He continued on and battled from 26th position to an impressive 5th; a monumental finish that left the LV Enterprises team extremely pleased.
“I knew going into the test that the car was fast and was set up properly for Concord Motorsports Park. Our main goal was for me to get comfortable and confident in the car. Testing a full sized car has been something that I have been really looking forward to and we have worked extremely hard in Legends cars to develop and build skill,” noted Adams.
Lindsey will continue testing with LV Alliance over the next few weeks and a race might be in the near future.
“We are looking forward to continue testing with LV Alliance. We feel that Lindsey’s drive and determination and the resources and experience of LV Enterprises will help to accelerate Lindsey’s learning curve in the ASA Late model Series,” remarked Don Nugent.
Lindsey and Trinity Marketing and Development will be traveling to Detroit, MI next week to continue a testing schedule with LV Alliance at Dixie Motor Speedway in Birchrun, MI.
