Fourth Duffy and Three More Eagles

The 2012 IKF
Nationals at the Fresno Fairgrounds have come and gone. Kolby started
his Nationals week by helping the Kerman Kart Club set up the track, pits RV
spots and whatever else needed to be done.
Kolby competed in
all six senior classes even with a 25 pound deficit in four of them.
Kolby ended the week with three Pole Qualifying efforts which added three
more Screaming Eagles to his collection and won the KPV4 Heavy class adding
a Duffy to the three already on his shelf.
The week was full
of great competition as always with the senior division. Kolby would
like to thanks all his sponsors, PKS Kart Supplies, Grand Products, P1
Engines, Graphix Plus, RLV, KAR Specialist, Bell Helmets, Meclec Metal
Finishing, and SPY Optics. A special thanks goes out to Camden Giese
and Grand Products for allowing Kolby to use a kart, which was the one that
won the Duffy.
