Winter Break is Almost Over

 

Kolby's 2013 season ended with a bad flip in Tulare which tore up the chassis and many parts.  With help from friends, Kolby wil be in a new Spike chassis for 2014.  Kolby plans to run limited schedules in both the Western Classic Sprints and Westcoast 360 Sprints.  Kolby is excited to get back to the track and get on the pedal.  Look for updates on his schedule both here and on his Facebook page.

Preparation for Trophy Cup

 

The 20th Annual Trophy Cup will be held at the Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway on October 17-19, 2013.  40 cars are entered for the wingless sprints which will run on night one.  Kolby is preparing his Chapion Spark Plugs, PKS sprinter for the show and hopes to get the car into the main event where only 22 cars will start.

 

The first thing was to ditch the four year old tires on the front of the car and replace with some new ones.  This will probably have a positive effect on the handling.  Kolby is now looking for some help to purchase some left rear tires.  So if you are looking for somewhere to ditch $250, let Kolby know and he'll take care of it for you.

 

 

Friday night's

 

September 22, 2013

 

Kings Speedway

 

Friday night's race was hosted by Kings Speedway where 21 wingless sprint cars attended.  The Westcoast 360 Sprint Car season is nearing the end and it only leaves Kolby a few more races to gain much needed experience.  Kolby started the night with a P14 qualifying effort putting him off pole for the heat race.  At the drop of the green, Kolby jumped out in the lead in the heat and was quickly chased by point leader Danny Faria.  Kolby dropped wheel down off the back straight on lap two and Faria flew by.  Kolby would finish P2 to put him 14th starting in the main.  The track held it's grip and moisture much more than anticipated.  Kolby started the main with a tight race car and it only got worse as the race continued.  Kolby was able to work his way up as far as 9th, then tore his last tear off laps from the end.  With little  vision, Kolby dropped back to finish 14th.

Hanford Speedway

 

The spare chassis is finally complete, the engine has been rebuilt and Kolby was once again ready to race.  Twenty wingless cars showed up at Hanford for the Billet Cup race.  Kolby started the night with some horespower issues which earned him a poor qualifying time.  This would put him up in the front of the heat race.  It was apparent that the engine issues were not fixed as Kolby dropped back early finishing at the back.  With the Billet Cup format, there was another chance to find the problem.  Some jetting changes seemd to help but the power was still down.  Heading into the main, a big change was made and Kolby was sent out to start on the pole. 

 

The green flag fell and Kolby went to the high side.  Two cars dove under going into three and Kolby went over the bank coming back onto the track in 18th.  Kolby worked his way back up hoping for a yellow which never fell.  Kolby was able to move back to finish 9th overall.  The car definately ran better but was still only running on seven cycliners due to a broken spark plug. 

 

Kolby will be back on the track on June 8th, back to Hanford's Giant Chevrolet Speedway.
