Hirst Scores Pair of Top-5’s
5/16/17- Kyle Hirst added another solid weekend of racing to his resume as he and his Roth Motorsports team collected another pair of Top-5 finishes.
The weekend began Friday night at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, CA. The HR Livestock/Roth Enterprises 83 machine started the evening off with a third place qualifying effort. After finishing second in his heat race, Hirst would go on to finish fourth in the Dash. Starting the A-Main on the outside of Row 2, Hirst quickly moved into the 2nd position where he remained throughout the event to conclude the evening.
On Saturday night, the Roth Team headed north to Placerville Speedway to contend with the KWS-NARC Fujitsu Sprint Car Series. Hirst qualified 3rd quick out of 23 cars and finished 2nd in his heat. The Dash inversion being a “0” gave Hirst the 3rd starting spot behind teammate Giovanni Scelzi and brother-in-law Willie Croft. On the start, Hirst drove the bottom line only to get bottled-up and shuffled back into the fifth position where he would end up finishing the event. Hirst started the A-Main event on the inside of Row #3. Battling a loose race car, Hirst was still able to capture another Top-5 finish, placing 4th over-all in the 30-Lap Event.
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 and Astro Titanium for their support in 2017.
