Go Kart Racing – Started racing Go Karts at Hunterstown Speedway at the age of 7. Raced Restrictor Plate 425 class and was track champion at Hunterstown speedway in 1997. In 1998, I finished 3rd in points for the State of Pennsylvania and 4th in points for the State of Virginia. I finished 5th place in 2000 in the World Kart Association. (Junior Champ Class) In 2001, I placed 4th in the Champ Class for the PA Dirt Kart Association.

Sprint Car Racing – Started racing 358 Sprint Cars in 2003 on local speedways with the KARS organization.

2004 finished 18th in points at Lincoln Speedway and 15th on the KARS circuit.In 2005, we had many good finishes and ended with 20th in points at Williamsgrove Speedway and 17th at Lincoln Speedway.

In 2006, we won our first “A” Main feature event at Williams Grove and ended the year 17th in points at Williams Grove Speedway and 12th at Lincoln Speedway. I also received THE MOST IMPROVED DRIVER award at Lincoln Speedway in 2006.

The 2007 season had better starts and finishes ending 7th in points at Lincoln Speedway and 11th in points at Williamsgrove Speedway.

2008 finished 11th in points at Williamsgrove Speedway, 358 Division and finished 9th in points at Lincoln Speedway. The Wide Open Motorsports debuted the 410 last in the season.  Adam qualified for a few A mains and lead 10 laps for a feature at Williamsgrove Speedway.  The team went to the National Open at Williamsgrove Speedway and posted a good qualifying time and made the A Main of the National Open.

In 2009, Adam started racing a 410 sprint car full-time and raced at Williams Grove and Lincoln Speedways. Adam had a very good rookie season highlighted by 2 wins at Williams Grove Speedway. Adam received the “Rookie of the Year” awards at Williams Grove and Lincoln, and was voted “2009 Sprint Car Hall of Fame Poll National Rookie of the Year”!

In 2010, Adam scored his first win at Lincoln Speedway. The team had 17 Top 10 finishes and 7 Top 5 finishes during the 2010 season.  Adam missed 4 weeks of racing in August due to a hand injury at Port Royal Speedway. WOM ended the 2010 season 16th in points at Williams Grove Speedway and 13th at Lincoln Speedway.

The 2011 season was filled with challenges and change. The team did not score any wins but had 16 Top 10 finishes and 4 Top 5 finishes in 2011. Wide Open Motorsports completed the 2011 season 20th in points at Williams Grove Speedway and 9th in points at Lincoln Speedway. The team had several weeks unable to compete due to motor issues.

Look for consistency and wins in 2012 with new crew chief, Dusty Crump, owner/motortuner Brad Wilt, longtime mechanic Daryl Gemmill, mechanics Will Bechtel, Steve Wilt, and Jared Goodling.

Going into the 2013 season the Team was focused on consistency and better finishes……Mission Accomplished! The team finished with more top 5 and top 10’s then previous years and picking up a win at Lincoln Speedway also.  Adam lead more laps and was a contender to win on many nights. Adam and the team made their first trip to the prestigious Ohio Speedweek with the All Star Circuit of Champions and competed in majority of the weeks events. He gained valuable experience at these new tracks. The team returned to the famed Eldora Speedway in the Kings Royal also. Adam’s primary focus was Williams Grove and Lincoln Speedways’. He finished in the top 10 in points at both tracks with a 10th and 8th place finish respectively.

The team enters 2014 looking to take it to the next level. With the addition of Lee Stauffer to our existing dedicated and experienced crew, we look to achieve better results and more frequent visits to victory lane.
