At only ten years old, a Wellsboro native has a big dream for such a pint size fourth grader at Don Gill Elementary School, Wellsboro. That dream has followed this young athlete with a hope of racing Indy cars for Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates which operates teams on both the IndyCar, NASCAR and Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series circuit. His NASCAR operation is under the banner Earnhardt Ganassi Racing, after a merger with Dale Earnhardt, Inc..

Adam Cornell became interested in racing at a very early age of six in a worn-out 1997 Coyote Chassis practicing for hours on end as dad watched for the lawnchair, only to get up and fill the gas tank as needed.

Cornell continued his career in go-kart racing competing at Moe’s Karting World in Addison, N.Y., where he won many races in the Novice Class for 5-8 years olds.

Later in 2009, Cornell ran in the Blue Plate class for 9-11 year olds, securing the Blue Plate race and one junior restricted race for 12-15 year olds, ony at the age of eight.
