Driver // Adam Yeoman
Adam Yeoman and the FY Racing team have shown remarkable improvement in the 2014 Rally America Championship. The 2011 Rally America Rookie of the Year has three career podium finishes, most recently at the Oregon Trail Rally. He started as a rally fan of the Lake Superior Performance Rally held in his hometown when he was in high school. Shortly after that, he bought a 1999 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS, but was distracted for a few years when he and co-driver and friend Jordan Schulze performed with the melodic punk band The Hurt Process in the Van’s Warped Tour. When the tour ended, the two decided to focus on rallying.
“Since I wasn’t touring anymore I felt it was the right time to pursue my passion for motorsports and that came in the form of rally,” Yeoman said about the change in his focus. “My co-driver Jordan and I redeveloped a Super Production car into our first Open-class car and the rest is history.”
His most memorable rally accolade was when the team won the LSPR in 2011, the year it was a regional-only event.
“Every time I’m in the seat I’m having fun. That’s what this is all about,” Yeoman said. “Nothing feels better than bringing home a first-place finish on home turf!”
Another memorable rally event, yet not one he hopes to repeat was at STPR in 2011 when the team had a frightening crash and rollover.
“The scariest moment would have to be last year at STPR when we rolled several times and didn’t finish,” Yeoman said. “There’s a video of it floating around on YouTube and you can see/hear that we tried to keep going after landing on the wheels but the car wasn’t having any of it.”
However, 2011 was overall a great year for FY Racing as Yeoman was selected Rally America’s Rookie of the Year, ending the season in fifth overall.
With a great start in 2014, the team’s goal is to keep up the momentum, often a challenge when you’re competing against some of the top factory teams.
“We’re still a relatively new team, but our car’s better. Although our engine was built by Vermont Sports Car, we do everything else ourselves including the fabrication,” Yeoman said. “I hope we can finish the season in second or third.”
How did you get started in Rally or Rallycross?
When I was in high school I used to spectate at Press On Regardless Rally (now LSPR) and always thought it was awesome.
