KITTANNING, Pa. (February 24, 2021) – Celebrating nine seasons behind the wheel of a stock car in 2021, dropping the handlebars for the final time in 2012 before planting himself beneath a roll cage the following spring, “The Body” Joey Zambotti is setting his aim high for the new year, working hard to surpass a recent season win total that equaled five Pro Stock victories across two tracks, one of which the season opener at Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Maryland.
Zambotti, a second-generation racer out of Kittanning, Pennsylvania, has been on a steady rise since he made the transition from two wheels to four. The former motocross pro licensee adapted quickly to the style change and now owns 26 wins in the Pro Stock division, earning his first during action at the famed Lernerville Speedway in 2014.
A mere 20-mile jaunt from Zambotti Racing headquarters, Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania, has been Zambotti’s Friday night home since commencing his short track career, ultimately resulting in track championship contention on a consistent basis. The 33-year-old has finished no worse than fourth in the final standings since 2016 highlighted with back-to-back third-place finishes in 2019 and 2020.
Maintaining consistency and winning races has always been a priority, but securing a track championship is the ultimate end goal.
“It’s been a fun ride the last few years. To be a contender on a regular basis, especially against a talented field that we’re up against every Friday night at Lernerville, says a lot about this team. I wouldn’t be in this position without the loving support from my family and crew. They’ve been with me every step of the way and I wouldn’t want it any other way,” Joey Zambotti said, who owns and operates Zambotti Collision in Kittanning in addition to maintaining an active race team. “We want to win a championship. I think we have what it takes to be on top at the end of the season. A mistake here and there can eliminate those chances pretty quick, but If we can stay clear of those hiccups, we’ll be right where we need to be.”
In addition to regular appearances at Lernerville Speedway aboard his familiar No. 948, Zambotti will also participate in select RUSH Late Model events during the 2021 season, as well as help his son activate his kart career.
“Earning a Lernerville title is going to be our main focus, that’s for sure,” Zambotti continued when discussing his plans. “But, I want to make some crate late model starts, too. We’ll take a look at the local and regional RUSH calendar and race when it makes the most sense for us. My oldest son, Joey, is old enough to race karts this year, so I want to help him get started in that. It’s all about family.”
After a pair test and tune dates on April 2 and April 9, Lernerville Speedway will begin its season with Fab4 weekly competition on Friday, April 16. Zambotti’s Lernerville calendar will extend through Friday, September 17, when the final points race will be contested.
“We still have some work to do, but we’re excited to get started. It’s going to be a fun year.”
