In the off-season Greg Adler and the 4 Wheel Parts Team worked on a brand new Pro 4 for the 2016 Lucas Oil Off-Road Race Series (LOORRS) season. With hard work and dedication from himself and his team, Greg was able to get the truck ready for a battle. “I don’t think there is a harsher environment to subject your motor to than short course off-road racing. We race 900 HP trucks sometimes inches apart with mud, dust, and dirt flinging everywhere. We rely on K&N filters to protect our motor through every lap while giving us that extra power that will get us to the checkered flag,” Greg explained. He was able to capture a third place finish in Round 2 on the opening weekend of the Lake Elsinore race.

When you think your schedule couldn’t be any busier, you need to look at Greg’s and consider yourself lucky. Greg’s schedule consists of being a race car driver, team owner, President and CEO of 4 Wheel Parts with over 1500 employees, a husband, and a father. Greg also makes time to figure out ways to use his exposure to help people in several different ways. One of them is, “April is Autism Awareness Month,” said Adler. “Due to our being made aware that our son is on the Autism spectrum, my wife Stacy and I were able to begin early treatment and training to assist him in overcoming many of the challenges related to Autism. We were fortunate to have been made aware by our doctor and with racing, along with the media exposure it receives, we are able to promote the importance of Autism awareness at the Lucas Oil Off Road Race in Lake Elsinore.”

With a schedule like Greg’s you don’t normally think there is time for anything else, and if there is, its time to spend with his family. But, he somehow still finds time to do things that brighten people’s days. Heading into the next two rounds of racing in Lake Elsinore, The Jessie Rees Foundation asked Greg if he would like to join a few of the top drivers from each division along with some of the Lucas Oil executives to visit with some of the children in Loma Linda Children’s Hospital. “The Jessie Rees Foundation was created in honor of a young girl, Jessie Rees, who wanted to put smiles on the faces of children fighting cancer,” said Adler. “Jessie herself was battling the disease when she decided to create little ‘Joy Jars’ containing toys for kids of all ages. I was honored to be invited to spend some time with these strong and courageous children. In meeting these kids from 5 months to 18 years old, I was completely blown away by the great attitudes of these kids. Despite their treatments, these kids were smiling and very happy to receive the Joy Jars along with the toy trucks and Barbie’s we gave them”.

Greg also added, “We shared with them Jessie’s motto of Never Ever Give Up (NEGU) which is so uplifting for these children. I left there feeling inspired by their strength and spirit and could not help but to think about my own children, and how fortunate I truly am. On Saturday, the Jessie Rees Foundation brought a young man named Dylan to our pit. We were able to spend some time together, showing him the truck, the team hauler, and talking about racing. I told Dylan that I was going to get on the podium for him and bring him the trophy. It was great to come through on that and win that trophy for such a courageous young man.”

Greg Adler has proven himself to be a great motivator in the off road racing community. Greg has shown that just when you think you are too busy to do something for someone else, there is always a way to make time and make it happen. It’s amazing to think that something so small to you may make the biggest difference for someone else that needs it.
