NEWS December 8, 2010
WINTER GARDEN, Fla. (December 8, 2010) - Kenny Coolbeth, former AMA Pro Flat Track Singles Champion, will ride the Kawasaki brand under the Chaplin Kawasaki banner for 2011 in all the singles events.
Chaplin Kawasaki, a New England based dealer, will provide Coolbeth a fleet of race ready machines for the season. Their store located just miles away from Coolbeth will help to market the sport of Flat Track, generate hype for Coolbeth and bring a new sponsor to the arena. The dealership has been in existence for over sixty-five years, both Burt Ives and his son Kenny operate the multi-brand dealership including E-Tron, Polaris and Triton. Chaplin is confident that Coolbeth will find the Kawasaki's to his liking, matching his talent to the machine, and looks forward to much success in the season ahead.
Coolbeth won the AMA Pro Singles Championship in 2007, the same year he also won the Twins Championship; he was the first rider to earn such titles and still maintains such honor today.
With the 2011 schedule ready to launch and the competition rule book in place, Coolbeth is ready to blast the tracks in style searching for many checkered flags and podium finishes.
Kawasaki came into Flat Track just a few years ago. Two riders in 2010 had notable performances aboard the machines.
"I wanted to try something different for 2011," said Coolebth. "Chaplin was gracious enough to help me out. I have tested on them during this off season on different tracks. People are surprised that I made the switch; I am pretty excited. They are definitely different, but at the same time fast and fearless. I am looking forward to stay ahead of the competition and win some singles events."
