Driver Spotlight: “The Phantom” Kevin Sibley
Each Friday on TimsCorner.ca, we will spotlight one driver who runs Tim’s Corner Motorsports stickers on their cars throughout the season. Drivers who run Tim’s Corner Motorsports stickers can fill out the form at the bottom of the Driver Profiles page to get their listing on that page. In addition, we will pull one file each Friday and give them their extra spotlight here in the Driver Spotlight section.
Driver Spotlights each week are brought to you by Imaginit Designs and Signs at 202 Brownlow Drive in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia’s Burnside Industrial Park. Imaginit Designs and Signs is the official sticker supplier for Tim’s Corner Motorsports in 2013.

We are heading to Atlantic Motorsports Park on Sunday for the next three rounds of the Toyo Tires Spec Miata Championship Series and with that trip to the “roller coaster,” we will take this time to put the spotlight on Kevin Sibley. Sibley, known as “The Phantom” on the local oval racing scene, has recently made a transition to road racing. The 2013 season finds himself in the Toyo Tire Spec Miata Championship and he sits fourth after three events as a rookie.
