@2kendraadams •@Mobil1 • #mobil1 •Barrie, Ontario – December 29, 2016 – Super Stock driver Kendra Adams is excited to announce Mobil 1 engine oils as her primary sponsor for her 2017 St. Onge Recreation Super Stock season at Sunset International Speedway.
The history of Mobil 1 in motorsport dates back to the early 1970s. Today, Mobil 1 synthetic oil is relied on for its ability to deliver exceptional engine performance and protection even under some of the most extreme conditions and has long been the lubricant of choice for race teams competing in the most demanding and popular motorsports series across the globe. Mobil 1 isn’t just the world’s leading synthetic motor oil – it performs so amazingly under extreme conditions it’s the official lubricants of NASCAR, used by more than half of all NASCAR teams.

This past season Adams stepped up to the highly competitive St. Onge Recreation Super Stock division at Sunset Speedway where she competed in a grueling 18 race Super Stock schedule against some of the best up-and-coming drivers as well as some highly experienced veterans.
The 17 year old grade 12 Extended French student originally met Mobil 1 Grassroots Motorsport Coordinator David Swain at the inaugural Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo back in 2015. Starting with an initial meeting to discuss product support for her 2015 season the partnership grew to an associate sponsorship in 2016 as she transitioned from the Mini-Stock division to her inaugural Super Stock season.
“It’s been a genuine pleasure to work with David and represent the Mobil 1 brand for the past two years.” said Adams. “I’m looking forward to continuing our partnership in 2017. It will be an honour to have my #2 Mobil 1 Chevy on display at their booth March 10, 11 &12, 2017 during the third annual Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo.
Last July the UK-based TV show Mobil 1 The Grid production team joined Adams at Sunset International Speedway for a full day to film an episode that also featured longtime Mobil 1 sponsored NASCAR driver and legend Tony Stewart. Adams’ episode aired later that summer and can be viewed online here: http://www.mobil1thegrid.com/video/coming-getting-know-kendra-adams/
“Every once in a while you meet someone that makes you take notice and Kendra is one of those people. I have met few people who are as focused and hardworking as Kendra at such an early age. She is driven, articulate and is a very promising young driver.” said David Swain, Mobil 1 Grassroots Motorsport Coordinator. “Kendra makes Mobil 1 proud to be part of her journey in her motorsport career.”
Mobil 1 Grassroots Motorsport Coordinator David Swain will be a guest on Adam’s new TV series tentatively titled “The Fast Lane” airing sometime in June. Swain will discuss attracting sponsors and what they look for. This show will be part reality and part news programming as the show will follow the day in the life of a race car driver. The primary focus will be on motorsports, however, the secondary focus will be diversity and women in a variety sports.
Adams is thankful for her family of sponsors that help fuel her dreams: Mobil 1, SE Telecom, Paul Quail Transport, Onepromo.ca / Epic Racewear, The Mortgage Station, Speedy Auto Machine, Leading Edge Earth Works, Radical Rods, Rides and Restoration, Infinet Motorsports, Tyger Shark, Human 2.0, WIX Filters and Permatex.
Adams is a proud “Laps for Muscular Dystrophy” (Laps4MD) driver who’s pledged to donate $1 for every lap he leads this season. These donations go to Muscular Dystrophy Canada to help make a difference in the lives of over 50,000 Canadians affected by a neuromuscular disorder.
She is also a proud supporter of Kids Help Phone, who offers a 24/7 critical lifeline of hope and support for kids, teens, and young adults through its free, confidential and anonymous services.
