PETERSEN MEDIA- Climbing back aboard a potent Roth Motorsports entry to open up his 2017 season, Tim Kaeding thrilled the crowd during two nights of action in Tulare, CA as he recorded a pair of Top-10 finishes with the World of Outlaws.

 

“I was pretty happy with how things went considering I had not been in a car since November,” Tim Kaeding said. “Dennis and Teresa Roth always have a great equipment, and Todd, Jeff, and Cori worked hard all weekend to give me a great car.”

 

Known for his high flying ways at the Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, CA, the San Jose, CA native opened the weekend up by timing the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Roth Investments No. 83jr machine sixth fastest in qualifying time trials.

 

On a heavy surface in heat race action, TK would finish in the third spot and punch his ticket into the 35-lap ‘A’ Main. Lining up in the fifth row of the feature event, Kaeding would work around the tricky track battling with the likes of Ian Madsen and his teammate Kyle Hirst.

 

Falling out of the Top-10 at one point of the race, TK would get the high side working, and would race his way forward up well into the Top-10. As the laps clicked off and action picked up all over the speedway, Kaeding would take the checkered flag in the 10th spot.

 

Back in action one night later, Kaeding would have issues in time trials and would ultimately end up 24th on the speed charts. Lining up sixth in his heat race, TK would make a couple of big moves to get up into fourth and safely transfer into the 35-lap finale.

 

Getting collected in another drivers stoppage on the fifth lap, Kaeding would tag the back of the pack and put on a show during the final 30-laps of the race. With the track slick on this night, Kaeding would pass cars at will as he moved into the Top-10 before the rubber would go down on the speedway.

 

Battling with Carson Macedo on the rubber, Kaeding would hold the spot and close the weekend out with an eighth place finish.

 

“It is great to run well for Dennis and Teresa Roth since it is so close to their home base,” TK added. “We would have loved to have been up front battling for the win, but I have to thank them for allowing me to run with the Outlaws in California, and hopefully we can be up front at Stockton this weekend.”

 

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Roth Investments, Southern Pacific Farms, 3H Cattle, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Astro Titanium for their support in 2016.

 

ON TAP: TK and Roth Motorsports return to action on Friday and Saturday night in Stockton, CA.

 

2017 BY THE NUMBERS: Starts-2, Wins-0, Top 5’s-0, Top 10’s-2.

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting a rep for being one of the toughest drivers in California at Thunderbowl Raceway over the last few years, Kyle Hirst had a nice showing there with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series as he worked his way from 14th to finish eighth on Friday night.

 

“It has been such a good start to this 2017 season, and I owe it all to the Roth Motorsports guys,” Kyle Hirst said. “We ran into some bad luck on Saturday night, but overall we have been pretty good each and every night so far this year.”

 

The Paradise, CA pilot opened the weekend up by timing the Roth Enterprises/Roth Investments/HR Livestock Transportation backed No. 83 machine in 14th fastest in qualifying time trials.

 

Starting and finishing fourth in his heat race, Hirst would move on to the 35-lap feature event where he would line up in the seventh row. Finding a nice line that worked for him on a tricky Thunderbowl Raceway surface, Hirst would work into the Top-10 where he battled his teammate, Tim Kaeding, Paul McMahan, and Donny Schatz.

 

A couple of late restarts would make this interesting as the three-time King of the West Champion would pick up an eighth place finish at the line.

 

Returning to action on Saturday night for the conclusion of the two-day event, Hirst would time in 17th fastest in qualifying time trials before finish sixth in his heat race. Forced into the ‘Last Chance Showdown’ Hirst would thrill the crowd during a battle with Greg Wilson before taking over the second spot for good and moving into the feature event.

 

Getting off to a quick start in the first few laps of the race, Hirst would make contact with the wall on the fourth lap, and would pull into the work area when the caution flew on the fifth lap to hopefully make repairs.

 

It was discovered the issue was terminal, and Hirst’s night would be cut short.

 

“You hate to have ‘DNF’s’, but you have to forget about them and worry about your next race,” Kyle Hirst said. “I have to thank Dennis and Teresa Roth for continuing to let us come out and run a bunch of races, and hopefully this weekend we can get back up front in Stockton, CA like we were able to last year.”

 

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Roth Investments, 3H Cattle, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Astro Titanium for their support in 2017.

 

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 5, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 1, Top 10’s: 3.

 

ON TAP: Hirst and the Roth Motorsports team will continue on with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series this coming weekend in Stockton, CA.
