2013 NEMA Lite champion Carl Medeiros, Jr. will take another step in his stellar racing career when he straps himself into a Valenti Modified Racing Series race car for the first time. The 17-year-old Westport, MA high school senior will campaign a car formerly owned by Kevin Stuart and driven by another graduate of the NEMA series, Anthony Nocella.
“We had no intention of buying another car so soon, but it was going to the flea market, so we jumped on it,” Medeiros said. “Our main concern is to sell off the midgets we have now, and get our TQ ready for a few shows.”
When asked about the new ride, Medeiros said “It’s basically a new car with only one season on it, with all the good parts and we’re getting a good deal, (it) can’t get much better.”
