DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 19, 2014) - Last Sunday marked the third time in series history AMA Pro Flat Track visited Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, to take on the half-mile oval. Kenny Coolbeth made headlines last offseason when he announced his plans to join forces with Zanotti Racing this year after sporting the Factory Harley-Davidson ride for so many seasons prior. Coolbeth's win last Sunday and fast start to 2014 indicates he's doing just fine with the transition.
We left on Friday morning for the Portland airport, to fly into the Des Moines airport. During the flight, I started to feel sick.
We got into Des Moines and drove about an hour, to the town of Pella, where we met TJ Burnett, Tony Burnett, and Luke Baird. We decided to go get something to eat at a pizza buffet.
After that, we took it easy. We went to the hotel and sat in the hot tub, then went and sat in the room and talked and waited for Craig and Austin Helmholz to fly in.
