INDIANAPOLIS (Apr. 7, 2017) – Cole Ketcham Racing kicks off their 2017 season this weekend with back-to-back nights at Kokomo Speedway (Kokomo, Indiana). This weekend’s Kokomo Grand Prix hosts the non-wing sprint cars, running for Kokomo track points, alongside the USAC National Midgets.

Ketcham is ready to test out his non-wing No. 41 DRC chassis at the quarter mile oval, before preparing to compete with the USAC National Sprint Car Series in the following weeks. Cole Ketcham Racing plans to follow the entire USAC National series excluding the West Coast swing at the end of the season.

“I’m really excited to be able to run the majority of the USAC tour this year,” said Ketcham. “Still looking for some sponsorship to lighten the financial load, but I’m just ready to get back behind the wheel and get back out on the track. Racing with the best non-wing guys in country only makes you a better driver.”

Ketcham races for his family owned team comprised of his dad, John Ketcham, brother, Dillan Ketcham, and friends, Randy and Tyler Vandorn, who help out at the shop and on weekends.

“We are definitely a smaller team, but I’ve only been racing sprint cars for a couple years,” said Ketcham. “I haven’t really had the chance to run a full season because we operate on a tighter budget than most, but we’re going to give it a shot this year and hopefully get some good finishes.”

Ketcham will make his 2017 USAC National Sprint Car Series debut at Bloomington Speedway next Friday, April 14th. The No. 41 will also be in action with the USAC sprint cars, Saturday, April 15th, at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana.

You can find Cole’s entire schedule on his newly redesigned website at Sponsorship opportunities are also listed on his website under the “Sponsors” tab.

Cole Ketcham Racing would like to thank the following sponsors: Norrick Petroleum, Infinity Shocks, High Side Design, and Gotta Race Apparel.
