PETERSEN MEDIA- Taking the reigns of the Roth Motorsports No. 83 machine on Wednesday night in Chico, CA with the Civil War Series, Kyle Hirst would finish second on a rubber down surface during the duration of the 30-lap feature event.
“I really want to thank the entire Roth Motorsports team for giving me the opportunity to climb back in their car on Wednesday night,” Kyle Hirst said. “I wish the surface would have been a little more prone to race on Wednesday night, it was great to get them back on the podium.”
With 53 cars checked into the Silver Dollar Speedway on Wednesday night, Hirst would time the Roth Enterprises/Roth Investments/Southern Pacific Farms entry in eight fastest in his qualifying group.
Starting on the front row of his heat race, the Paradise, CA pilot would jump out to the early lead race his way to the win, as he also punched his ticket into the Dash.
Running second in the six-lap dash to Mitchell Faccinto, Hirst would line his machine up on the front row of the 30-lap feature event. With rubber going down on the speedway during the non-wing race, passing was at an extreme premium during the winged race.
Trying to save his tires early in the feature, Hirst was hoping to make a move in traffic, but with the way cautions flew traffic never became an issue. A late restart would give Hirst a final chance to battle for the lead, but it would be to no avail as he closed his night out with a second place finish.
“I kind of messed that last restart up, and it blew our final shot at racing for the win,” Hirst said. “It was a really fun night, and it was nice to get in the Roth car and run well. Thank you again to Dennis and Teresa Roth, and the entire team for making it all possible.”
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.
