We are pleased to announce that seventeen year old Colton Flinner and his no. 75 Rocket has officially joined the Fully Injected ranks for the 2012 season and beyond! The Hampton High School senior has had lots of success on the racetrack in the past, and now plans to continue that success while representing Team Fully Injected.
Colton Flinner started his young racing career just like many others did; racing and excelling through the many different levels of go-kart competition. The nephew of local super late model star, John Flinner, took the kart racing world by storm; racking up multiple track championships – six to be exact – while winning over 150 races. By the time Colton turned 13, he and his father understood it was time to move on and try something different. A late model was purchased off of his uncle, and his career in crate late model racing was officially born.
Colton won his first career crate late model feature at Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway the day after his 15th birthday. That victory made Flinner the youngest driver to ever win a feature at PPMS in a crate late model. His Pittsburgh’s Pennsylvania Motor Speedway Track Championship in 2011 made Colton the youngest driver to ever win a track title in the crate late model class at PPMS; thus proving for a second time that age is not a factor. His current win total stands at five; with three of those five wins coming last season during his track championship charge.
We welcome Colton Flinner to Team Fully Injected. He will join four other ‘Late Model Division’ drivers including crate competitors Mike Reft and Joe Martin, and super late model stars, Jared Miley and Gregg Satterlee. You will be able to keep up with Colton during the entire 2012 season – right here at www.fullyinjected.com.
Flinner would like to thank his sponsors: Rocket chassis, All American Framers, A.w. Beattie technical school, Randig towing, Bellisario lounge, Jared Miley racing, Mike Johnson Racing, Flemming Tire, Vox Energy, JNJ Motorsports Media, Ingram Racing Engines.
