Gloddy returning to MotoAmerica Junior Cup in 2021 with Landers Racing
Ben Gloddy, 15, of Northfield, New Hampshire, will be returning to the MotoAmerica Junior Cup Series for the 2021 race season with Landers Racing, LLC. This will be Gloddy’s second full season as a Junior Cup Racer. He finished fourth in the 2020 Junior Cup Championship, with eight podium finishes and many close battles as a frequent front runner. In 2019, his rookie season, Gloddy finished ninth in the Junior Cup Championship, with one podium finish, after only being eligible to compete at six of the series rounds due to his age.
Gloddy said: “First I want to thank Dale & Alex Quarterley, Bob Robbins, Eraldo Ferracci, Eric Wood, John Grush, Sergio Di Molfetta, The Big S, Scott Stump, Danny Walker, the entire Quarterley Racing On Track Development Team and all of the sponsors who were involved in 2019 and 2020. Everyone’s hard work, guidance and dedication over the last two years will forever be a part of my story and I am grateful to everyone, including my fans, that have helped me get to this point in my career. I learned a lot from Dale and will carry that knowledge forward with me. I am very excited to be racing for Landers Racing this season, they have a solid program and we know they can build a race winning bike. I intend to prove I am capable of winning too. Stoney, Rocco and the entire Landers Family have become great friends of mine over the last couple seasons and I know we will work great together.”
Stoney Landers added; “Ben came into the MotoAmerica scene mid-way through 2019 in the Junior Cup class. He was young and didn’t have a ton of road race experience. Right away I noticed he was putting in respectable finishes and has just gotten more and more consistent as the races have clicked by. I know he has had some good people in his corner to help bring him along such as Danny Walker, Bob Robbins, Dale Quarterly, Eraldo Ferracci, and Eric Wood to name just a few. Our package worked well for Rocco, so I am looking forward to giving Ben the same level of commitment that helped Rocco get the job done. It will not be easy due to fast kids that are continuing in the class, as well as some very quick kids that are cycling into the Junior Cup class. We will be pushed constantly, but we are ready for the challenge. Ben’s work ethic, talent, and interest to improve will serve him well.”
In 2021, Gloddy will also continue to be a guest instructor at American Supercamp and the Penguin Racing School. He has been coached under American Supercamp since 2011 and as one of the original two kids selected to be part of the Penguin Racing School Youth Mentor Program, Gloddy continues to be a part of their program and helps coach and mentor other youth racers.
