Kenny Coolbeth Jr., Nila Racing and Columbia Avionics, ascended the podium in second place after Sunday’s rain-delayed race at Dixie Speedway in Atlanta.

The rider led the pole Saturday and had a great race overall. Joined by new sponsor Klock Werks, of Mitchell, SD, Coolbeth, a CT resident, qualified first despite tricky conditions and subsequently claimed the second spot from challengers Jeffrey Carver Jr. and Jarod Vanderkooi.

This result, combined with his Daytona TT eighth-place spot, puts Coolbeth and his privateer Indian Scout FTR750 in second in the early-season point standings. The legendary rider seems determined and able to leave the series on a high note – he’s announced this will be his final AFT season.

“I’ve devoted my life to this sport and knowing it’s my final season provides a unique level of motivation for me,” said Coolbeth. “I’m armed with a brand new bike that’s running incredibly well, and I’m planning to give it everything I’ve got to finish on top, before I ride off into the sunset.”

“Factory teams get a lot of the attention and glory, but privateers are the backbone of this sport, and we couldn’t be prouder to be associated with a rider as respected and decorated as Kenny,” said Brian Klock, President and Visionary of Klock Werks, “On behalf of all of us at Klock Werks, we’re extremely proud to be a part of the final season of one of flat track racing’s most iconic riders.”
