Lou Jr., is following in some big footsteps, some of those are his fathers. Lou Sr., won the ARDC car owner’s title in 1976, and is an institution in Eastern Midget Racing.
In addition to being a superb driver, Lou Jr., is an excellent engineer and fabricator. He joined forces with USAC driver Dan Drinan over the winter of 1995-96 to design and build a state of the art midget which became the envy of all drivers.
Open Wheel Magazine columnist Bones Bourcier said “Lou Cicconi Jr., is one the most promising open-wheel drivers in the country. Everyone knows he’s a great driver; he can go as far as he wants to go in the sport.”
Top ARDC driver John Heydenreich has said, “When Liquid Lou is in the field, you can depend on having to work hard if you’re going to win.”
Area Auto Racing News columnist Earl Krause hs said, “Lou Cicconi Jt. is a superb driver with a great deal of natural driving ability. He has a real feel for a race car.”
Steve Peters, President ARDC has said “Lou Cicconi Jr has a dynamic personality and a great deal of natual, raw talent. He know how to set up a race car, he surrounds himself with other good people, he sets goals, he runs up front, and he achieves his goals. He knows how to speak in front of a crowd and he’s great with the fans, especially the kids.” “But the biggest attribute that has made him a champion is his versatility. He has won on dirt tracks and asphalt; short tracks and big tracks; with wing and without wings. He adapts to whatever the challenge is, and he’s always a winner.”
