Joey Kale - King of the Hill & Rookie of the Year! (Almost)

Editors Note: Looks like I jumped the gun on naming Joey as Rookie of the Year when I posted this story. This honor is voted on at the Annual Awards Banquet which has not taken place yet. Sorry about that guys, I'm still learning the ropes.

Recently I interviewed Joey Kale of Kales Custom and he hoped at that time he would finish his first season of racing hillclimbs by being named Rookie of the Year and also getting King of the Hill honors for posting the best set of times at the last race of the season, the Mt. Philo Hillclimb.

Well guess what? He did it! Congratulations Joey! That should help to erase the pain of crashing into a tree on his last run... oops!
Hey, that's racing, and it exemplifies Joey's favorite saying "Going Fast, Taking Chances."
And an update, Joey rebuilt a whole new tubular front-end for his Subaru last weekend. So he's ready to go again and I feel sorry for the next tree that gets in his way.

Thanks to Steve Jones of Sports Car Club of Vermont and the New England Hillclimb Association for this video of one of Joey's last runs at Mt. Philo
