Driver Information

My name is Wendy Adams and I am the driver of the #78 mini stock that my husbnad and I race at Sunset Speedway in Innisfil.  This will be my third season racing at sunset.  My interest is stock car racing began when I was young when my dad took me to Barrie Speedway every Saturday night to watch, always having the dream of drving some day.  Although I never thought I would get the opportunity to race, in 2007 I decided to take the stock driving course at Barrie Speedway and got a taste of driving a real stock car.  My brother gave me the opportunity in 2008 to race his car and although not competitive, it did give me the chance to get comfortable racing.  In 2011 my husband and I bought our own stock car that was race ready and had a competitive engine and well built, purchased an open car hauler and then got ready for our first year of racing in the 2012 season.  With lots of practice, I was getting ready for opening night to be as prepared as I could for taking my first green flag.  The first season was more geared to getting seat time which increased as the season continued.   Unfortunately I had a taste of hitting the wall, the car sustained alot of damage but I walked away with just bruises.  We only lost one week of racing and that first season we finished 13th overall in points.  The 2013 season was hoping to be a more competitive season but with engine issues and another crash into the wall meant that we lost half the season.  The 2014 season was not as we expected but with engine issues and another crash but depiste our setbacks we finished the season on a high with the car running well.  The 2015 Season was the most successfull seasons yet, we were able to complete every night of racing and the perserverance paid off as we finished 9th overall in the Mighty Mini Division and also received the Hard Luck Award as well.  The 2016 season is looking very exciting as we have our new car ready to go and we learned alot as we tested some changes at Velocity last September.
