Joy, Pennsylvania (May 25, 2017) – Walnutport,
Pennsylvania’s Kevin Kromer, the K2 Motorsports team, and family
have run into their share of various obstacles at the track the last
couple seasons. With
that said, no Super Cup Stock Car Series race would prepare them for
the battle they would face beginning midway through 2016.
Kromer received a
cancer diagnosis immediately prior to the July event at Jennerstown
Speedway and the short track racing community rallied around him.
After weeks of chemo and radiation treatments that followed
and recovery from a major surgery, the 52-year-old driver can now

a revitalized outlook on life, Kromer plans for the 2017 season
focus to be on paying the support they have received forward to the
Northeast Pennsylvania region they call home and more.
“The model for
this year is to give back,” Kromer explained.
“What we’re doing is partnering with the Lehigh Valley
Health Network with proceeds to raise funds for the continued
research at the Lehigh Valley Health Network Cancer Institute.”
Jennerstown’s recent opening night, Kevin and his wife Kelly
Kromer were in attendance to help promote this July’s SCSCS event
at the ½-mile and describe his progress as well as the Nobody
Fights Alone / Racing for a Cure message that will adorn his No. 77
Chevrolet this year.
At each of the
SCSCS events, shirts and other items will be available along with
opportunities to bring awareness and marketing to benefit the good

around his racing luck for 2017 and beyond in the SCSCS and another
racing endeavor to be announced at a future time.

it all. Looking at this
to win the championship and putting all my effort into it.”

which he hopes to continue improving upon prior results.

Kyle’s car at Columbus Motor Speedway last year.
With his health
back, Kevin’s optimism has him riding high entering the season
opener at Midvale Speedway, a track in which he has won at on two
