“This is pretty amazing,” said 20-year-old Colwell. “I would never have thought I was going to win coming from Outlaw Kart. The midgets are a lot of fun – more fun than anything I’ve ever raced. I can’t thank Keith Kunz, Pete Willoughby and everyone at KKM and Toyota enough.”Jesse Colwell
“Jesse Colwell has really turned heads over this past year,” said Paul Doleshal, group manager of motorsports and asset management for Toyota Motor North America (TMNA). “From last year’s KKM Giveback Classic victory, to what he and Keith Kunz Motorsports have been able to accomplish together, this is a relationship we’ve enjoyed watching flourish and look forward to what they can do in the future.”Paul Doleshal
Toyota drivers have now won five of the last seven POWRi national midget championships with Zach Daum (2013, 2014, 2016) and Tucker Klaasmeyer (2018).
This year, Toyota drivers have already captured three driver championships, with CJ Greaves (Lucas Oil Midwest Short Course League Pro 4), Christian Eckes (ARCA Menards Series) and now Colwell (POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League).
