Building a Mystery
KAM RACING HISTORY
The King Started it All
KAM Fueled Racing is competing its third season in the Late Model division at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA. Grandview Speedway has been in operation since 1963 by the Rogers family, where racing is every Saturday night from April through September.
KAM is named after the three children of owner Steve Bartorillo. They are Kylie, Alex (the King), and Matthew. The teamed formed when Alex, known as the king by his grandparents, loved racing so much that he wanted to go to the pits and see some drivers. Alex had the pleasure of meeting Joe "Geezer" Fanelli, one of the most popular racers in the dirt track racing community, and the love of racing began. Geezer was so kind to the King that a KAM was formed a few years later with Geezer as the driver. Since then Geezer wanted to move to the modified division but the KAM Team wanted to stay in the Late Model. Geezer got the Team going and after Andy Cassel drove the hot rod in 2017, Danny Synder was brought on board for the 2018 season.
Danny will be behind the wheel of the Late Model. The number is 44, which is similar to Danny's number 4s, which is his Super Late Model . Danny is a seasoned veteran who is a great person on and off the track. His crew will also be part of the KAM Family

ALEX "THE KING"
Here is the King. He is the one who started it all. If it weren't for him bugging his dad to go to the pits to: see the drivers after the race, visit Ernie Saxton in the announcer's booth at Grandview, or to talk to Chuck Schutz with Geezer Fannelli to buy a race car, KAM Fueled Racing would not be around. The King started it all but does not pay the bills!
We have no idea who Jordan is but he makes the team a better looking bunch!!

Building a Mystery
"You come out at night
That's when the energy comes
And the dark side's light....
Oh, you're working,
Building a mystery
Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you're working
Building a mystery
And choosing so carefully"
COACH PETE SOVIA
President of Turn 4 Gang
The KAM Fueled Racing team wouldn’t be where it is today if it weren’t for Coach Sovia who oversees our strategy and advises on the best course of action. We really couldn’t have wished for a better President of the Turn 4 Gang
We didn't write the above for Coach. It came with the website. But the wording was too good to pass up!.
And yes, this is not the Coach. It could be him many years ago and Yocco's hotdogs.
