From iRacing to Attica!
Wicked Cushion is excited to Welcome 19-year-old Chris Verda from Elyria, Ohio to the Wicked Cushion family!
Chris has been around racing since the age of 4 and has always had the dream of following in his father’s footsteps to become a race driver. Chris’s interest in motorsports grew into a full passion after he was introduced to Ed Neumeister 11N race team. During his time with the 11N team, the Linder family of Linder’s Speed Equipment took him under their wing and his knowledge of the sport grew.
Chris worked with the Linder’s and the 11N for 2 years and experienced the thrill of being part of a team that earned 4 All Star Circuit of Champion wins amongst other wins. The time with the 11N team provided Chris the opportunity to work with notable drivers such as; Christopher Bell, Carson Macedo, DJ Netto and Buddy Kofoid. This exposure to some of the top talent in sprint car racing was a huge opportunity in Chris’s racing education.
Cheis has been a consistent competitor in the sprint car segment of dirt racing on the iRacing.com platform. He has earned over 90 official wins and 6 NWOB Series wins and an In-The-Zone-Racing league championship.
Chris Verda will now take what he has learned from his crew experience and his iRacing competitions and transfer over to the dirt track for his rookie year of sprint car racing. Chris will be driving the Verda 3V in winged 305 competition at Attica and Fremont speedway’s in 2019. The 3V will have support from Wicked Cushion, Real-Geese, Wicked Energy Gum, Tim Edgington, Real-Capz, Jon Wright’s Custom Chrome Plating, Northern Ohio Truck Center, Ross Environmental Services and Linder’s Speed Equipment.
