Kyle Hirst Takes Tough Tumble at Kern County Raceway Park


PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting back to his title hunt with the King of the West Series on Saturday night in Bakersfield, CA, Kyle Hirst would take a tough tumble on race’s opening lap that has tightened the series championship hunt with just two races to go.

“I am just extremely thankful that my guys build me a safe car, and all of my safety components did their job,” Kyle Hirst said. “I made a mistake coming to the green and off we went.”

Saturday night at Kern County Raceway Park, Kyle Hirst got his night started off by timing the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Roth Investments machine timed in eighth quickest in qualifying time trials.

Picking up the heat race win, the Paradise, CA driver would earn a spot in the nightly Dash where a third place finish put him in the third row to start the 30-lap feature event.

As the field came to the green flag, Hirst would admittedly get a little to high and come into contact with another competitor and it would result in him taking a very wild ride ending in the turn one fence.

Able to quickly escape the wreckage, Hirst’s night would come to a bit of an early end.

“I hate it for my guys, and for the entire Roth Motorsports team,” Kyle Hirst said. “Dennis and Teresa Roth give me a great opportunity and I know I will have two awesome cars ready to go this weekend in Hanford, CA.”

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, Kaeding Performance, and Astro Titanium for their support in 2018.

BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 51, Wins: 12, Top 5’s: 29, Top 10’s: 33.

ON TAP: Hirst will be in action Saturday night in Hanford, CA as he will take the points lead into the Cotton Classic with both the KWS and SCCT.
