Over the winter of 2000-01, Bobby Seymour was at the forefront of an effort to make the Northeastern Midget Association “more friendly” to younger drivers. The minimum age for drivers was lowered considerably.
“It was a must,” says Seymour, “one of those things that had to be done.” Young drivers, he says, had “a lot of different avenues” coming out of go-karts and NEMA was not one of them. We had to change or lose them.”
Bobby Santos III and Adam Cantor are products of that move.
