ALCONA BEACH, ON – After an influx of confidence generated by a top-5 finish in his most recent outing at Sauble Speedway on August 22nd, Super Stock mainstay Coltin Everingham will look to bring his Sunset Speedway knowledge into his first career modified start at Sunset Speedway.
“I’ve always loved the pressure that comes with a new racing adventure and that is exactly what running with these top OSCAAR Modified driver’s provide.”
“Our team has always been at its best when there’s the most on the line,” adds the third-generation racer. “There are no points to race for this season – but these open shows against this type of competition is as big as it gets this season. We’re ready to get to the at it this weekend.”
While Everingham’s performance at Sauble netted him a 5th-place finish, the reigning Sunset Speedway champion believes that his team is more than capable of improving on that result at Sunset Speedway were he’s raced for year’s.
“From the early days of our team we’ve always been about being better than we were the week before,” notes the Alcona Beach, ON native. “Sometimes, especially when you’re racing against top-tier teams, improvement can come down to a game of inches. It’s not easy. But, we know that we have the team and the equipment to get the job done, Holdaway Motorsports has put a bunch of new parts on this beast and after a solid practice at Flamboro Speedway we are ready to let it loose.”
“Our number one concern for Saturday is to make sure we’re there at the end,” says Everingham. “Those are the laps that count. That’s what you get paid out for. It doesn’t matter where you are on lap-10 if you trip over yourself and end up buried in the pack when it comes down to the last 10 laps.”
“You need to come to the track with the right strategy – or you might have a tough time rolling your car back into the trailer when it’s all said and done.”
