After months of hard work during the off-season, ADAMS Motorsports officially unveiled their new car and paint scheme.
The team purchased a new chassis in November, and spent time at Brian McDonald Chassis Fabrication – stripping it down, followed by a slew of updates before painting it.
The car also features a brand new body, that was all hand crafted by ADAMS Motorsports except for the roof and nose.
Making the transition from orange to red for the season, the team is hoping to stand out on-track all year long.
After success in the Thunder Car ranks, Luke Gignac is set to embark on his rookie season of competition. A past champion and multiple feature wins to his credit, Gignac is certainly a welcome addition to the team in 2016.
“I’m eager to get out there and try the new style of car out,” Gignac said. “Just really looking forward to going out and having fun.”
Gignac stated that he and Allen Adams have known each other quite a few years, with Adams having watched Gignac at Barrie Speedway previously. The pair got to know each other last year, through Adams making decals for Gignac after a suggestion from mutual friend Darryl Stephenson of TSS Top Shops.
“Near the end of the year, when he knew he was needing a driver, he kind of always watched me and thought I handled myself well, and plain out asked me if I’d be interested in driving for him,” Gignac said. “The way I look at it, more horsepower and a faster car so I’m in. I would drive anything, as far as racing goes. So he wants me to drive something – I’ll give it a shot.”
ADAMS Motorsports is looking forward to a successful campaign after finishing sixth in points last year with A.J. Emms.
ADAMS Motorsports is proud to be supported by PBS Motors & Pumps, Wolseley Canada, Dave Wiggins Custom Exhaust, OTD Building Supplies, Fox’s Bakery and Deli, TSS Top Shops, Wix Filters, Heritage Heating Contractors, Duckworths Fish and Chips Orillia, and Dwinnel’s Family Movers would also be back on board on sponsor for 2016.
The OSCAAR Modifieds will open their season at Flamboro Speedway on May 21-22, joining the OSCAAR Outlaw Super Lates and the OSCAAR Midgets as part of Flamboro’s big May 24 weekend. The Super Lates will run their feature on the Saturday with the Midgets and Modifieds just qualifying, with both the Midgets and Modifieds running their features on the Sunday.
