Race drivers come in all shapes and sizes. Glendora native Kenton Koch is tall and lean, just like another famous Glendora native: Gumby. On May 1-3, Kenton will be taking Gumby for a high speed ride in his ALARA Racing Mazda MX-5 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, in Monterey, California. This community partnership is to promote the June 14th Gumby Fest in Glendora, and help raise money for the Glendora Library.

Kenton will be donating his custom Gumby Fest Mazda Motorsports Sparco racesuit and helmet to the Glendora Library to be auctioned off in support of the library. “A special thanks to L & G Enterprises for painting such a beautiful helmet” said Kenton. “To whoever gets this piece of art, take care of it!”

This partnership would not have been possible without the help of L & G Enterprises, Mazda Motorsports, Sparco, ALARA Racing, Myles Regan and Sir Speedy – Monrovia.

Kenton Koch, “Being a native Glendora resident, I jumped at the chance to support this great community event. My plan is to take both Gumby and Pokey to the winner’s circle in Monterey.”

Joe Cina, Executive Director, Glendora Chamber of Commerce; “Our inaugural Gumby Fest is all about fun for the family. It’s wonderful to have young community leaders like Kenton Koch step forward in creative ways to help out. This will be a great photo op for kids of all ages.”

Joe Clokey, Clokey Productions/Premavision: “Gumby is about adventure, and racing is certainly an adventure. It’s great to have a Glendora native carrying Gumby and Pokey at the racetrack.”
