Brockton, MA – After taking the 2011 season to “learn & reflect,” 2012 will mark Adam Cantor’s return to the driver’s seat as a championship contender in Northeast Midget Association competition.
“I can’t wait for the green flag to drop at Waterford’s opener in late March,” states Cantor. “I’m really looking forward to running against the likes of Randy Cabral, Russ & Greg Stoehr and Joey Payne all season long.”
Cantor calls the 2011 season “the most difficult of his life,” having been the first time in 22 years not behind the wheel of a racecar. As much as it was difficult, Cantor also learned a great deal as well as he spent much of his time “watching the races unfold, learning each driver’s tendencies, strategy, and taking the time to understand chassis set up at a much deeper level.”
Cantor Racing returns with its long time sponsor of ten years, IGA Reichert Group. “It has been a pleasure to have been able to work with Charlie Reichert and his family. I consider us truly blessed to have been able to have their support and friendship,” says Cantor.
A family operation at its core, Cantor credits his parents, Allan Cantor (team owner) & Kim (team manager) and Joe Demonte (head mechanic) for much of his career success. “They have never questioned any of the decisions I have made and have supported every single decision I have made whether they liked it or not,” states Cantor.
Cantor also credits long time mentors, including karting legend Charlie Cressi, for his success.
Highlighting Monadnock & Twin State as his favorite tracks, he has nothing against any of the tracks on NEMA’s schedule in 2012. “Once you dislike a track, you are better off staying home,” says Cantor.
Cantor and NEMA kick their season off at Waterford Speedbowl on March 31st. Follow the organization through the Winter at www.nemaracing.com.
