Lindsey graduates out of Legends 600 Pro Series July 12, 2008


After a great season with SPG Motorsports, Adams and her management have made the decision to pull out of the Legends Car Series. The decision was made so that Lindsey will be focusing, full time, on her efforts in a full size stock car.

“SPG Motorsports gave me everything they had to offer in the Legends Car Series. Our goal was to learn ovals and develop my skills in fender to fender racing. Now I will continue on my education in stock cars. I am very grateful to Sean Glennon for his commitment to my development and support in my career,” commented Lindsey earlier this week.

With their goals fulfilled LAR will leave the Legends Pro Series currently fourteenth in points Nationally, the highest ranking female in the Pro Division. The highest in National points Lindsey reached was fifth position with fourteen top five finishes in the Lone Star Legends Series.

Team Tomlin and Lindsey Adams celebrate first regional and national win at Texas World Speedway! - 6/7/06


This past weekend Lindsey Adams celebrated her first win in a formula car! Thanks to the crew and owners of Team Tomlin, Adams qualified on pole and won two days in a row. The race was held by the Sports Car Club of America out at Texas World Speedway in College Station, Texas.

Friday was a full practice day of five, 20 minute, sessions. Saturday (regional race) and Sunday (national race) each included a qualifying session and 25 lap final race. Lindsey qualified in first position and finished with a strong win!

“There are races where you might qualify fifth, battle your heart out and finish second. Sometimes those mean more than a win,” Adams comments, “Now is not a time like that. Qualifying on pole by three tenths and winning both finals in a national race felt incredible! I wouldn’t trade this for anything!”

Excerpts:

How did you get into racing? How do you train for this sport?

Racing has been in my family for three generations now. One of my earliest memories is at the motocross track watching my dad race his dirt bike. One of my dad’s earliest memories is growing up in his dad’s machine shop. So, I guess you could say that racing is in my blood. I always begged my dad to let me race something, a motorcycle, a go-kart, a dragster, I didn’t care… I just wanted to race. He finally bought me a go-kart and here I am, pursuing a career as a professional racecar driver.

Being fit is extremely important in this sport. I find biking, swimming, and weight training a great way to stay in shape. Not only is it important to stay fit physically, but mentally as well. I stay focused and “on track” in order to achieve my goals!

What do you love most about this sport?

I am an extremely competitive person; I always have been. Racing is constant competition. Whether you are fighting it out on the track, competing for a ride on a certain team, or trying to maintain your reign as a national champion, you are always trying to be the best, trying to win. Racing is also a constant process. I believe in always challenging myself and pushing myself to the limit. The first time I ever sat in a Formula Mazda I was just so excited to be at that level. Now I have settled in and I am expected to perform not only by my team, but by myself. I love the pressure, the constant learning process, the humility it takes, and of course… winning!

How often do you compete? Describe the coolest and/or most challenging race that you’ve ever been in.

I compete at least twice a month. Whether it is in a go-kart or a Formula Mazda, racing is definitely a full time schedule. When I am not at an event I am testing in Denton, Ft. Worth, or at the next track in my series. Many people ask how I balance school and racing. My school is so great about working with me to make up classes and complete my work. They believe in me and want me to do the best I possibly can!

One of the coolest races I have ever competed in was the KART National Championships. I had won the Rotax South Central Regions Cup race a few days before and waswas fastest all week in practice but ended up qualifying 2nd out of 20 drivers, due to low tire pressures, in the most competitive class, the Rotax International class. I started off-pole (2nd place) in the final race, got the lead, and led all 18 laps. Yes, I love the competition, but sometimes it’s nice to be, hands-down, the fastest driver.

What challenges do you face when you compete? How do you meet these challenges?

In any profession or walk of life there will be challenges that have to be met. One of my biggest challenges that I have is finding sponsors that will help fund my program. Without sponsors I cannot race. So meeting this challenge has been a constant battle that I have won and some times lost. Right now I have an amazing sponsor, Team Tomlin, an Addison, Texas based racing team, that has provided me with a car and a crew for this coming season. A big thanks to Dan Tomlin Jr. with Team Tomlin.
