Hirst Extends Point Lead with SCCT
8/28/17- Driver Kyle Hirst put together another solid weekend of racing with a sixth and second place finish with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour. Hirst and his Roth Motorsports team would extend their championship points lead with only one race remaining with the series.
Starting the weekend off at Placerville Speedway with the SCCT, Hirst started 15th and went on to finish 6th in the 40-Lap Feature, earning himself the “Hard Charger Award”.
On Saturday evening, the SCCT headed to Stockton Dirt Track where the Roth Enterprise/HR Livestock entry thrilled the crowd with another “Hard Charger Award”. Hirst lined up 13th and took the lead by Lap 11. After leading the next several laps and holding off challengers on restarts, Hirst entered lapped traffic and lost the lead as second place Shane Golobic took advantage of Hirst’s mistake off of turn 4. Golobic went on to win the 35-Lap Feature with Hirst second and Michael “Buddy” Kofoid in third.
The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Roth Investments, 3H Cattle, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown & Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance and Astro Titanium for their support in 2017.
ON TAP: Hirst and the Roth Motorsports team will be racing Saturday night at Keller Auto Speedway.
