Dude if I had the cash on me right now I would. But imo everyone talks about Earnhardt and guys like Adam have been overlooked.I thinlk its good you made this post to make some people remember him. I remember coming home from school and hearing on the news he had died. I was really in shock this was a young driver not much older that me at the time who lost his life before his career got started.

I was at Adams First win in ASA it was at I-70 speedway he was sponsered by Sprint (headquatered here in KC). He came from 2 laps down to win the race I was working for TNN for that race. The camara guy and I were the first people to his car and he was on his cell phone calling his mom (there were in Califonia for the cup race). He said mom guess what I WON I WON. As I was looking in his car he looked up at me and had a big smile gave me a thumbs up. :13:

That's pretty cool, Scott. It is real sad that he never really got a chance to show his stuff. Up until his death, I didn't realize how dangerous racing was. That was a bad stretch losing three drivers in that short of time.
