Super Late Model

Much like it was for society as a whole, 2020 was a crazy year for ABR. The pandemic, the weather, mechanical issues and a crash combined to limit ABR to less than 15 races on the season. Along the way there were achievements and positive signs, but it was a season that all were happy to see end.

Super Late Model

To honor the 10th anniversary of the passing of his grandfather, one of his biggest supporters, Austin used his season to raise awareness and funding for Pancreatic Cancer research. The car carried a purple paint scheme and the ribbon symbol that customarily represents this disease. The team's campaign, aptly named Racing For Time, given the short notice the afflicted often have, raised over $5,500 and educated thousands of people about the warning signs of pancreatic cancer.
