MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Sept. 18, 2013) -- Ross Kenseth will join forces with Adrian Carriers Racing this weekend to run a Southern Super Series twin bill on the Gulf Coast, first at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fla. on Friday, then at Mobile (Ala.) International Speedway on Saturday.
Racing the No. 29 Adrian Carriers super late model, Kenseth will be heading into the weekend coming off two straight victories in the Pro All Star Series at South Boston, Va. and Autodrome Chaudiere near Quebec City, Canada.
"Nick carlson is the crew chief on the Adrian Carriers team and we've been friends for a while," said Kenseth when speaking about how the arrangement was made. "We saw an opportunity to do some racing together and I jumped at the chance. They have been very successful in past. I've raced against their equipment numerous times and have been impressed, so i'm looking forward to working with them and getting to learn how they do things."
Reflecting on how winning two races in a row can help in the driver's seat, Kenseth added, "It helps with confidence more than anything. Winning races cures a lot of things and having that success helps reaffirm that when you work on the right things and get the car where you need it that you can go out there and compete for a win."
This will be the second race of the season for Kenseth at Five Flags Speedway, which hosts one of the premier super late model races in the country each December, The Snowball Derby.
Asked if the extra track time at Five Flags Speedway will help prepare for the Snowball Derby, where he finished third in 2011, Kenseth responded, "Maybe. I think it helps with seeing how the track changes and racing with the drivers who will be down there in December competing in the Derby. Getting a handle on racing situations will probably be a help but besides that the weather will most likely be a lot different and the race will be at a different time of day so our main focus this weekend is just going down there and leaving with a spotless car and a trophy."
