Ebers picks up win at Cocopah Speedway
Two years ago, Craig Ebers’ son said he wanted to watch the races at Cocopah Speedway.
Saturday night he got to watch his dad win his first race ever.
Ebers drove the race of his still fledgling career during Round 13 of the 2013 Cocopah Speedway Racing Series and in the process won the Factory Stock Division feature event.
“I think everyone down there in our class is more excited for me to win than I am,” said Ebers from victory lane, talking about an endeavor that until Saturday night had many more downs than ups. “It’s been an uphill battle since we started,” he continued. “I had no idea what we were doing. We’ve come a long way, learned a lot.”
When Cocopah Speedway reopened in 2010 after being closed for 11 years, Ebers said his son Kainen, now 9, wanted to watch the races.
