Hirst 12th With World of Outlaws During Series’ Return To Bakersfield Speedway


PETERSEN MEDIA- Hopping back aboard the Roth Motorsports No. 83jr on Friday night to compete with the World of Outlaws at the Bakersfield Speedway, Kyle Hirst would have some late restarts not go his way as he ended his night with a 12th place finish.

“We had a pretty good night going and ran as high as sixth during the feature, but restarts killed us and we faded back to finish 12th,” Hirst explained.

After timing the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Roth Investments No. 83jr machine in 14th during time trials the Paradise, CA pilot would finish fifth in his heat race to put him in the seventh row of the 30-lap feature event.

As the night went on and the track got more racy, Hirst was a rocket in the early part of the race quickly moving into the Top-10. Battling with Willie Croft and Paul McMahan at times during the race, Hirst would get up to the sixth spot as the wild feature drew to the end.

A couple of late restarts would end up hurting the former King of the West Champion as he would fall outside of the Top-10 late in the race and end his night with a 12th place finish.

“I have to thank Dennis and Teresa Roth for allowing me to come out and race this car against the World of Outlaws again,” Hirst said. “I thought we had a better car than where we finished, but it didn’t work out for us. It was cool to get to the Bakersfield Speedway, and thought the track was pretty good for sprint cars for the first visit there in quite some time.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Roth Investments, 3H Cattle,  Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Astro Titanium for their support in 2016.
