INNISFIL, ON – Following his most successful Sunset Speedway season to date in 2016, NASCAR Super Stock up-and-comer Coltin Everingham will return to Sunset in 2017 with a freshly built Streamline Race Products chassis at his disposal and a revitalized outlook on competition and his family-operated team.
When asked of his new acquisition, Everingham wastes little time expressing his excitement in joining the growing list of Streamline Race Products representatives alongside SRP founder Shaun McWhirter and New York short track veteran Scott Wylie.
“Joining a team of guys like Streamline [Race Products] has been such an awesome experience already,” beams Everingham. “Guys like Shaun [McWhirter] and Scott [Wylie] have been everywhere and raced all over North America. There is a lot of experience in that shop on any given night. I have a ton of respect and admiration for all of the guys affiliated with SRP”
In a Super Stock division that seems to exist in a constant state of evolution and advancement, Everingham knows remaining on the cutting edge of technology has never been more crucial for a driver in search of a breakout campaign.
“Coming into the season with a new car is huge for us,” admits the third-generation racer. “It’s another way for us to keep working towards where we need to be. The last two seasons we’ve been making gains every single week but it always felt like there was a limit to what we could accomplish. Our team has always been about doing a lot with a little – and I couldn’t be prouder of that – but this new car is going to put us on a new level”
With just four weeks remaining until Sunset’s opening weekend, it’s readily apparent that Everingham is more than ready to begin pre-season practice en route to preparing his claim for the 2017 Super Stock championship.
“I’ve never driven a new car before, so this entire experience is brand new for me,” smiles the Innisfil, ON native. “I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for anything in my entire life. I mean that. The team is going to have to drag me out of the seat at the end of our first practice session, because I’m going to want to turn laps until we run out of fuel”
“This division never gets any easier,” adds Everingham. “This roster is something special to be a part of because it’s so deep from top to bottom”
“Every Saturday the young guys are getting faster and the veterans are upping their games. It’s all about hard work and game planning more and more every week. We’re ready for that. Our team is going to have a big season in 2017.”
