Everybody's favorite... and for good reason. Freddy Adam, known as
the "Kutztown Komet," won his share of races, but also won the friendship of
the many, many fans and of his fellow drivers as a gentleman racer with a
Freddy Adam - The best for all the right reasons.

Freddy was a member of the Bullock Family since 1963. He was like a son to my Father, and a brother to Warren, Wayne and myself. Racing was always the most fun with Freddy. I think He and Dad are taking racing right now. Nobody ever stood on the gas better. He won the very last Race of Champions at Langhorne on dirt in 1964 driving the Bullock Special #76, a win my Father stated was by far the biggest of his career. Thank you Freddy for all the wonderful memories, and God Speed, my friend.

I did know of his greatness as a person from the times I got to see him at various events and from seeing that look in folks eyes whenever they spoke about Freddy.|
|02.03.13||Geoff Yoder||To me the best view of Freddy....smiling as he always did
beside his most famous ride with a packed Reading Fairgrounds grandstand
before another special Friday night of modified racing. A view that is part
of my soul and I am sure so many others that experienced all those special
nights at the Fairgrounds. And if you were from Kutztown as I was, or just a
big Freddy fan, seeing this picture really says it all.

at the Hatfield speedway. If my memory is correct... he drove a little 3
window coupe #2. He immediately became a favorite and I still have an
autographed photo of that car. Over the years we saw Freddy win many races
at Hatfield and the Reading Fairgrounds. My favorite memory is of the 1964
Langhorne race of champions that Freddy won in a sprint to the finish racing
Bill Wimble and Kenny Shoemaker for the win. I had the privilege of meeting
and getting an autographed picture of Freddy several years ago at the Oaks
Race Car show.
He will be greatly missed.
On my first visit to this fine web-site, one of the first photos I clicked on was one of Freddie. It was a very good photo that I thought was of his racing days at Reading. Then I found out it was a very recent photo at one of the local reunions, he looked the same, Red hair, Buzz cut , Big smile. So when ever I think of “3Wide”, I also will always think of Freddie. God Bless you, you ole Redhead!
