Placerville, CA…The Placerville Speedway is proud to welcome back ADCO Driveline and Custom Exhaust as a weekly partner and official fast time sponsor of the Winged 360 Sprint Car division for the upcoming 2022 season.

The Winged 360 Sprint Car fast qualifier will go home with $100 cash at all 15 weekly events. ADCO Driveline and Custom Exhaust owner Ken Short has been around the track for virtually his whole life and is a sponsor of numerous cars that compete at the facility, in addition to being on the pit crew for Placerville Speedway regular CJ Humphreys.

“We’re definitely excited to help out once again at Placerville Speedway and are happy to be a partner at the track for the 15th consecutive year,” Short commented. “I pretty much grew up at the track and we sponsor a lot of the cars that compete out there, so it’s really a natural fit for our company. What Scott and Kami have done with the facility, the payouts and the track has been pretty special. We are all looking forward to a great season.”

ADCO Driveline has been building and repairing drivelines for over 40 years. Founded in 1974, it was purchased in 1980 by Rich Lyman. Ken Short managed the shop for several years before purchasing it with his wife, Theresa, in 2007. Ken, a Ponderosa High School graduate, was born and raised in Placerville. He spent 11 years at Midas, managing for 8 of those years repairing and servicing brakes, exhaust and suspension. He then worked for SPD in Rancho Cordova, where he ran their tube bending operation and participated in exhaust design.

Ken brought these skills to ADCO Driveline, where he saw an opportunity to fulfill his dreams of owning and operating his own shop. For more information visit
