While on “The Bullring” Thursday evening, she talked about her time in the KDDP one month after the big announcement.
“It’s been a lot of fun so far. Everyone with the Kulwicki Driver Development Program has been wonderful. Speaking to Tom Roberts more about the deal and how to go throughout the year not only to support the Development Program, but Alan himself,” Storer said. “Hopefully we can go make that Polish Victory Lap around Citrus County Speedway this weekend.”
Storer’s 2021 season to date has been a roller coaster one that is starting to trend up. After a series of misfortune to start off the year, she has finished second and fifth in her last two races.
With the KDDP announcement, she has declared this weekend’s Wheel Man race a season reset as she chases wins the rest of the year.
The 2021 season has already had some ups and downs but I really look forward to now with the Kulwicki Driver Development Program having started. We’re going to start our season out now and go from there. We had a couple ups and downs this year but we’ve still had some good runs with good momentum pushing forward for the rest of 2021.
That reset comes at a track where she has seen her most success with the Wheel Man Series. Of her five career wins with the series, three of them have come at Citrus County.
Last season, she led the series with four wins while finishing third in the final points standings. She looks to carry that same momentum into the new season.
I’m very excited to get back to Citrus this weekend, we seem to do very well there these past couple years, so I’m really looking forward to getting back to that facility. I’m really excited to get back with the Wheel Man Series as well, a lot of competitive drivers and race cars out there.
While the Wheel Man Sportsman Series is the only thing currently in her cards for 2021, Storer is actively searching for other opportunities in other equipment for this year and beyond. Her main goal is to get back into a Pro Late Model, with an eye on the Snowflake 100 at the end of the year.
“We’ll be working on it the rest of the season, especially pushing towards something. Hopefully, we can make it into the Snowflake 100 this year, that’s what we’re working on right now. Next year, hopefully more Super Late Model stuff and we’ll go from there. For right now, our main focus is the Wheel Man Series and hopefully we can jump a couple local Pro races like we did a couple years ago.”
