7/31/2017- The Roth Motorsports team headed to Northern California on Friday night to compete at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, CA. Driver Kyle Hirst qualified his Roth Enterprise/HR Livestock machine third quick and went on to win his heat race. Hirst lined up fourth in the A-Main event where he quickly moved into the second position behind leader Sean Becker. Hirst trailed Becker until the halfway point as the leaders navigated thru lapped traffic. Driving low in turn 1, Hirst slid up in front of Becker off of turn 2 and was able to hold him off to capture his 8th win of the season.
Saturday night, the Roth team headed to Fernley 95 A Raceway just east of Reno, NV for Round #10 with the (SCCT) Sprint Car Challenge Tour.
Starting off the evening, Hirst qualified third overall and finished second in his heat race. Hirst earned a spot in the Dash event, where he started fifth and finished fourth. Starting on the outside of row #2 in the Main event, Hirst moved up to the third position where he would eventually finish behind race winner Shane Golobic and pole sitter Michael Kofoid.
Hirst earned his 8th podium finish out of 10 races with the SCCT series and remains the current point leader with only three races remaining.
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.
