Hirst Grabs Win #4 of Season
5/30/17- Kyle Hirst earned his 4th victory of the season aboard his Roth Motorsports entry on Sunday night, competing against the Civil War Sprint Car Series in Chico, CA.
On Saturday night, Hirst and his Roth team traveled to the Stockton Dirt Track to compete with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour. Hirst qualified 3rd in his group (16th overall). Winning Heat race #4, gave Hirst a 9th place starting position in the A-Main event. Hirst claimed yet another podium spot, finishing 3rd behind race winner Mitchell Faccinto and Willie Croft.
On Sunday at the Silver Dollar Speedway, Hirst started off the night with a 10th place qualifying effort. Hirst would go on to win his heat race and lock himself into the Dash event. Lining up 8th in the Dash, Hirst raced his way up to 4th as the checkered flag waved.
At the start of the A-Main event, Hirst quickly maneuvered his way around Justin Sanders and Shane Golobic into the second position, behind race leader Shawn Conde. Mid-race, lap traffic came into play tightening the gap as Hirst made his move on lap 18 taking the lead off of turn 4. Hirst led the remaining 12 laps, to go on to win the 30 Lap A-Main event ahead of Justin Sanders and Andy Forsberg.
ON TAP: Hirst and the Roth Motorsports team will be racing Saturday night at Antioch Speedway with the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Racing Series.
