When the season started off, there was the simple goal to learn for rookies. Now heading into the second half, it’s all about improvement.

Coltin Everingham started off the year struggling to stay on the lead lap in the features. Now, Everingham is keeping the car straight and staying out of trouble, running more competitive lap times each week.

“I think my rookie year has been amazing!” He comments. “First time ever being behind a wheel of anything and I’m eighth in points, 12 points behind the other rookie (Nick Tooley)!”

Everingham adds that the biggest thing he’s learned so far is to be consistent.

“Without that, your goals become unreasonable and almost impossible to make happen,” he adds.

Consistently each week, Everingham has been battling for a spot just inside of the top 10 each week and says he wants to get better by working on the handling of the car.

“I want to improve on driving the car harder in the corners and run more consistent and maybe have a shot at winning rookie of the year,” he says of his goals for the rest of the season.

Like most drivers, Everingham got interested in racing at a young age. He has been around the track since a kid as both his dad and grandpa raced before him. The thing that draws him to racing – the rush of being behind the wheel.

“What I like about racing is the rush, the rumble of the motors going down the back stretch and the thrill,” he comments. “Also how good the people are to you and meeting new people.”

For their support, Everingham would like to thank his dad, Katie, and Eriq, as well as his sponsors Steel n Ink Collingwood, B&B Excavating, Pearly Consulting, Ed’s Performance, Simon performance, Euro Panini Catering and Thane Woodside Employment Lawyer.
