ALCONA BEACH, ON – With a 4th place finish in his Jukasa Motor Speedway debut, Super Stock driver Coltin Everingham announced to the province that he was far from a ‘one track wonder’.
The Alcona Beach, ON racer has had innumerable success at Sunset Speedway – culminating in a 2018 track championship – but still turned heads with his ability to adapt to Jukasa in just his first career start.
“I feel comfortable telling you that our program is able to contend at absolutely any speedway in Ontario,” says Everingham. “This team has been built up the right way from Day 1. The more we tour, the more we’re going to keep surprising people.”
Everingham has done all that he could in recent years to make it clear that his family-run team are focused on ascending to the top of the Super Stock division – province-wide – and are grateful for the chance to once again display their forever-improving program on Jukasa’s stage.
“The goal has never been to just be one of the best (Super Stock) racer at one track,” explains the third-generation racer. “As huge of an honour as that is – it’s not the end of our journey. Not even close.”
“When the day comes that I stop doing this – and that’s not going to happen for a long time – I want to be remembered as one of the most consistent drivers at every Speedway,” continues Everingham.
“That doesn’t happen if you just stay at your home-track week after week. We aren’t afraid to expand our horizons and take on different speedways. It’s a privilege to have the chance to race at Jukasa and it would be silly to pass that up.”
A win on Saturday would catapult the rising star into rare air in Ontario, joining the short list of competitors that been to victory lane at the newly redesigned facility.
“We’re excited to head back to Jukasa because we understand that it’s the measuring stick right now,” explains Everingham. “No matter who you are, what you’ve done or what division you race in you can probably agree that a Jukasa win just stands apart from anything else these days.”
“I’m hungrier for a win now than I’ve ever been before. I know that our team and our equipment is good enough to give me a fighting chance this weekend. I just need to do my part.”
