Frankoski Tapped for 2011 NEMA Midget Series
Huntersville, NC (March 1, 2011) - Jeremy Frankoski and Adam Cantor Racing announce they will join forces to compete in the 2011 NEMA midget series. Frankoski will take the wheel of the IGA Reichert Group midget while Adam Cantor, former driver and long time NEMA stand out, will step into his new role as crew chief.
"We are very excited to have a driver of Jeremy's caliber behind the wheel for us," said team owner Allan Cantor. "He has shown that he is more than capable of getting the job done, and that is what we are looking forward to in 2011; getting the job done!"
Frankoski has plenty of experience in open wheel venues with both NEMA and USAC. In 2009, he won the USAC Ford Focus Carolina Championship with 5 wins, 10 top five finishes and 6 pole qualifications. He was subsequently honored by USAC with a Rookie of the Year title.
In NEMA, where Frankoski began racing midgets in 2007, he was also honored as the Rookie of the Year when he placed 6th in points and scored his first win at Beech Ridge. In two consecutive years with NEMA, Frankoski totaled 1 win, 8 top five and 17 top ten finishes. He also captured 5 heat wins.
During those two years in NEMA, Jeremy Frankoski and Adam Cantor raced against each other; now they will work together. "I am very happy with the opportunity to pursue a new role with the team as crew chief," explained Adam Cantor. "I believe that with my experience as a driver and Jeremy's ability to wheel a race car, we will be a formidable combination."
Frankoski responded, "It's an honor to be asked to drive for such a high quality team with a solid, long time sponsor like IGA Reichert Group." IGA (Independent Grocers Alliance) and The Reichert Group have been on board with Adam Cantor Racing since 2002. "It's great to be associated with a sponsor who is such an incredible supporter and fan of racing. Based on my past relationship with the Cantors, I feel we will mesh quickly and be very competitive all season!"
The trio will head to NEMA's season opening race weekend at the Speedbowl in Waterford, CT on April 2nd & 3rd.
