Adon Burrell

Hometown: Barkhamsted, CT

Date of Birth: : 6/13/06

Adon Burrell is 15 years old and resides in Barkhamsted, CT with his parents and two sisters.  He started racing quarter midgets in 2011 when he was 4.5 years old at Silver City Quarter Midget track in Meriden,CT - incidentally the same place where famed Nascar driver Joey Lagano started his career.  He was a member of Garcia Racing team and really owes his induction to the sport to Benny Garcia.  Adon raced his way to success at Silver City and filled his room with trophies, including winning the Eagle Race, Pumpkin Race

Adon has grown up tinkering with all things mechanical. While he played the typical youth sports of baseball and soccer, his passion was always driving.  He would circle his home’s property on his John Deere tractor for hours, moving rocks, towing other tractors and friends and siblings around in his cart. His family built a dirt track lined with race car tires on their acreage (much to his mother’s dismay) so he could safely drift his go cart around. He was always interested in taking apart engines and putting them back together.  He wrenched alongside his dad and uncle since he could walk, and has been involved with Joey Cipriano racing for several years now.  

 

In 2016, he branched out on his own and decided to change up the track style, joining Nutmeg Kart Club in Berlin, CT, where he began racing on a flat dirt track.  He saw much success as well as learned failure.  Here he was introduced to a much more competitive style of racing and his eyes were opened to dirty drivers.  Despite learning that not everyone was as honest as he was on the track, he remained committed to being a driver with integrity and respect.

 In 2019 he was honored with the Sportsman of the Year award and was the points leader in his division.  He was approached by Larson Motorsports and Chris Bagnell with the honor of being asked to be the driver of their champ cart the next year.  Unfortunately, the next year was 2020, which meant there would be no season.  Adon decided to apply for his Nascar Learner’s permit and was able to obtain it with hopes of racing in the truck series at Monadnock.  Covid threw everything into a tailspin.  It was his freshman year at Oliver Wolcott Technical High School and he spent most of the year distance learning.  He applied to and was accepted into the automotive shop where he currently is poised to begin his sophomore year.  He is excelling academically as well as in his trade shop, despite Covid, and has remained on high honors this year.
