With the first race of the season cancelled due to weather, Adam's 2013 debut was in the 305 sprint Steel City Stampede make-up race. Adam Kekich ran strong and consistent on the slick track, heeding the advice his father gave him before the race: "You aren't going to win this deal with your motor, you will win it with your head. Keep the wheels from spinning. Carry your speed off the corners." Kekich kept it together and brought home the team's first win in the 305 class.

Two weeks later, the 410 debut brought highs and lows to Adam Kekich and the Kekich Racing team.

"The car is just bad fast," Adam said after winning the heat race by a full straightaway. In the feature event Adam got right to work, moving from 9th to 6th in only five laps. Unfortunately traffic ahead slowed and trapped him, knocking off the front axle and ending his night.

The several weeks following brought some great results including two All-Star A-mains at Fremont Speedway running toe to toe with the greatest teams in the sport, as well as three top-5 finishes at Mercer. Two brake failures have slowed their momentum this season.

Despite this and with heavy hearts owing to the loss of Paul "Putzy" Kekich, the family patriarch and the first Kekich to wheel a sprint car, Adam put in a great drive last week, winning his heat and placing 6th in the feature event. Adam Kekich will surely draw on inspiration from Paul as he marches through the rest of the season.
