TITUSVILLE, Pa. – Kennedy Motorsports and team owner John Kennedy has added multi-time crate late model champion Max Blair to the Kennedy Motorsports team for the 2014 season.
Blair will drive the Kennedy Motorsports, Facility Management Group, Core Construction sponsored No. 111 Capital Race Car in regional competition as well as major touring series events within the northeast region.
“I’m beyond excited,” Blair said. “I can’t thank John Kennedy enough for this opportunity.”
Blair will join drivers Shane Clanton and Tim Fuller as a third member of the Kennedy Motorsports team.
Blair, who won his first super late model feature event this past summer at Marion Center (Pa.) Speedway, has become a household name in the crate late model ranks while winning championship after championship since 2008. During the 2013 season, Blair competed in 56 total events while capturing an astounding 51 top-five finishes and an even more impressive 26 wins.
“This is a childhood dream come true for me,” Blair said. “It’s amazing for a team owner like John Kennedy to think this highly of myself and our team to bring us on board like this. And for him to let everything come out of our shop just like (Tim) Fuller and (Shane) Clanton do is really exciting for me. To have my dad (Rob) by my side as we take on this new adventure is just plain awesome. I couldn’t imagine doing this without my dad. He’s made me the racer I am today and if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have this opportunity. I’m usually ready to start the next season as soon as one finishes but now there’s even more excitement to get started. I’m really looking forward to working with Mr. Kennedy, Tim Fuller, Shane Clanton and the rest of the Kennedy Motorsports team.”
