They call him the "King of Cool" and he certainly doesn't let you down on the race track. Kenny Coolbeth from Morris, CT is the one to beat on the track. Whether it is on the Grand National scene or at a local track, ice, snow or dirt; this fearless Champ rides in full talent mode.
From his early days, Kenny came through the ranks solid. Pushing with everything he had to get into the zone and win races. He started his professional career with the Corbin race team then went on with Jones Powersports and KTM.
After several hard attempts to win gold, Coolbeth signed with Harley-Davidson Motor Company and raked in three back to back titles in 2006,07 and 08.
In 2009 his effort was smooth; his wins measurable and Kenny battled week after week with the smell of another championship well into his reach. One week prior to Springfield, Coolbeth was out training when an injury would prevent him from racing the prestigious mile and a track where Kenny was confident for a win. A tough decision by Kenny would leave the door wide open for Jared Mees to capitalize. He did just that and Coolbeth finished the season in the #2 position.
The 2010 race season remained consistant but just shy of my mark for the number one as he finished 2nd to Jake Johnson.
In 2011, the battle with a high talented field week after week was fierce and tough. The twins races were decent bringing home a win under the Harley-Davidson backed program. "Cool" had 4 podium finishes and his worse finish was a 9th. Overall he finished 4th. Under the singles championship and aboard a Kawasaki, Coolbeth faired well. He took a win in Duquoin and overall finished fifth. "Cool" is ready for 2012 and get back to win a championship or two. Between training days, ice racing, and now a principal instructor at RIDE Academy, Coolbeth with have thousands upon thousands laps in before the season starts. His aggressive approach to the seasons have demonstrated his passion for the sport and his ability to be Champion once again. And yes, Kenny will be running with Harley-Davidson again for the twins and his second year for Chaplin Kawasaki for the singles. " I am super pumped and ready to roll."
