Hirst Has “Winning” Week

5/8/17- Kyle Hirst began his “winning” week welcoming his first-born daughter into the world. The excitement continued after pulling off his second win of the season.

On Friday night at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico CA, Kyle qualified 7th quick overall and went onto win his heat race.  Hirst drew a #3 starting spot for the A-Main Event.  Front-row starters, Roger Crocket and Mason Moore would lead the field to green.  Hirst quickly made his move as he drove between Crocket and Moore thru turns 1 & 2, taking the lead away on the first lap.  Hirst went onto lead all 25 laps, making it his 2nd win of the season at the 1/4 mile Bullring.

At the Annual Dave Bradway Jr. Memorial on Saturday night, things didn’t go as planned for the 83 team.  Hirst’s night ended early after encountering motor issues during his heat race along with a wreck in the B-Main Event.

Hirst commented on the evening.  “Just a tough night, blew up in the heat race and got crashed at the start of the B-Main. We’ll go back to the shop and re-group for next week.  Hopefully come back stronger and get the win.  I want to thank Dennis and Teresa Roth and everyone who helps this team succeed.” 

Roth Motorsports would like to congratulate Kyle and his Fiancé Amy on the birth of their daughter, Emma Mae.  

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.
