Aztec, New Mexico (10/31/2006): This week 14-year-old Alex Kennedy ventured to the Midwest to test ASA Late Model Series cars with two different teams. This youngster continues to impress every time he straps into a racecar!

Over his short career Alex has 96 wins and 19 championships. This season Alex made the leap from Legends cars to Super Late Models at Sandia (NM) Motor Speedway. Campaigning in local Late Model races and longer events on the United States Late Model Association (USLMA) circuit, Alex gained the respect of his fellow competitors despite being the youngest driver on the track.

Alex Kennedy will be teaming up with Lorz Motorsports at Nashville to make his ASA Late Model debut. At just 14 years old Alex will be one of the youngest competitors but once he straps into the car you would never know he is 14!

Over 60 entries have been received with the best in the ASA North, South, and Challenge series in action! Alex will get a chance to measure his talent against some of the best drivers in the USA at the famed Music City Motorplex on November 3,4,5.

Recently Allen-Hock Motorsports put Alex Kennedy in the seat of one of their ASA Late Model stock cars to see just how fast this young gun could drive at the Baer Field (IN) Speedway.

Driving their car that is nicknamed “Blacky,” Alex learned the line at this classic, flat bullring from Kris Stump a veteran of ASA Late Model action. “Alex definitely has talent. Baer Field is a very tough track to get around, so it’s a great place to go test,” said Stump.

Day two of Alex’s ASA Late Model testing adventure was at the Illiana (IN) Motor Speedway working with the crew from Lorz Motorsports. This half-mile track has been home to some of the greatest drivers in the Midwest and would be a great challenge for Alex Kennedy.

Dan and Mike Lorz were very impressed by this young man’s consistency and speed, especially with his lap times getting better and better on old tires! “Alex did great,” said Dan Lorz. “I have to keep remembering he is only 14!”

When he is not busy testing or racing his Late Model Stock car you can find Alex giving back to his community. The 2006 License to Read Summer Reading Program was a huge success! Alex enjoyed getting the kid’s autographs and pictures of the kids in the driver’s seat of his racecar.

Alex also encouraged the kids to use the library as a tool in life just as his crew uses tools to make his car go faster!

This summer ESPN’s Mike Massaro interviewed Alex and his Dad Terry for a special “Outside the Lines” feature about young drivers. “I can’t drive to Sonic to get a cheeseburger but I can drive a racecar,” said Alex. Copies of the “Outside the Lines” show are available on request.

In addition, Alex Kennedy will be competing in the famed “”Snowball Derby”, during the Snowflake 100 portion of the prestigious weekend; November 30th-December 3rd at the Five Flags (FL) Speedway in Pensacola, Florida.

This event has launched the career of many of today’s NASCAR stars. Contact Dennis Michelsen at (847) 421-7571 for details on sponsorship opportunities with this exciting young driver!
