BILSTEIN, looking to continue its deep-seated motorsports tradition, is excited to announce a partnership with top WISSOTA racer, Kevin Adams. Affectionately known as “Buzzy,” Adams saw early success in his racing career with two Super Stock and two Street Stock Championship titles. His dominance continued at the conclusion of the 2015 season when he earned his fourth WISSOTA Overall Modified Championship honors.
Fitted with new BILSTEIN XVS shock absorbers, Buzzy headed south to kick off the 2016 race season at the inaugural Sunshine State Modified Tour, taking 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes on half of the tour’s six main events. With a 14 point lead in the overall standings, Buzzy claimed the Series Championship title.
When asked about how his improved suspension setup performed, Buzzy exclaimed, “I can’t believe how great these new shocks feel on my car. My team and I are very impressed by the craftsmanship and the service that BILSTEIN has provided us. I cannot thank everyone at BILSTEIN enough, and we look forward to winning a lot of races with them.”
The BILSTEIN XVS Series shock absorber features a 46mm steel monotube body with high volume nitrogen bulb. The owner-rebuildable design, available in linear or digressive valving configurations, provides the versatility required to perform at any level of competition.
