In 2009, young Cole campaigned a full-sized midget throughout the season. With numerous heat race wins and 1 feature win, he was able to conquer 4th in Points and the Rookie of the Year Honors in the Rocky Mountain Midget Association.

With the success he has had in the past with all the other types of cars he has had a hold of the wheel in, it is certain that this young star will be standing on the top of a podium at a track near you!
