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 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.

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

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
Kolby will be

Kolby ran his
third and final race of t he season in the USAC Westcoast 360 Sprint Car
Series at the Cotton Classic in Hanford. The motor was rebuilt after
that last race due to a cracked head which took the team most of the evening
to sort out the gremlins. Kolby missed hot laps due to a misfire.
The team though they found the problem but it came back in the heat race.
several changes including the ignition, Kolby set out to the semi main to
see if it was going to run. At the start of the race, it was apparent
that the problem was fixed. Kolby started dead last and began picking
off the other drivers one by one. Finishing 5th, it put Kolby into the

straight fencing material to get caught up under Kolby' car. During a

The main event then went from green to checkered with no yellow flags.
Kolby worked his way up to the 13th spot by the end of the main after
