PETERSEN MEDIA: Continuing to hone his craft in the Midwest, Kyle Offill picked up his first win of the 2020 season on Sunday night in Burlington, IA at 34 Raceway, one night after a Top-10 run at Park Jefferson Speedway.
“Talk about having another great weekend in the Midwest,” Kyle Offill said. “Saturday night we were kind of a product of the format and won our heat from the pole and didn’t have enough passing points to make the Dash. Sunday night, I felt like Dillon Paddock and I were on our “A” game, and made all the right calls.”
Lining up on the pole of his Saturday night heat, the Tracy, CA driver picked up the win aboard the Country Builders/Ochoco West/Brown and Miller backed No. 88 machine and transferred directly into the feature event.
Not having enough points to garner a birth in the redraw, Offill would line up ninth on the extremely slick track that would ultimately take rubber, and have the total number of laps cut.
In a relatively uneventful 18-lap affair, Offill would take full advantage of three restarts throughout the race as he would work his way up to finish sixth when the race drew to an end.
Making the last minute decision to go to Burlington, IA on Sunday night over Ozarks Speedway due to weather, Offill would find himself back in the ninth starting position for his heat race.
Flexing some serious muscle early in the night, Offill would power his way forward and pick up a third place finish and make his way into the Dash. Using his front row starting position to his advantage, Offill would win the Dash, and then pull the four inversion pill to set the lineup for the ‘A’, putting him on the outside of the second row.
When a rain shower saturating the facility after the ‘B’, the track would become heavy again for the feature event. Unsure how the track would play out for passing with a ton of moisture back in the surface, Offill found a way as he ripped his way into the lead by the race’s 10th lap.
Out in front Offill was off and running as Paul Nienhiser nipped at his heels. Keeping his composure and hitting his marks, Offill would put the famed Offill Family No. 88 entry back in victory lane for the first time since Ronnie Day won back in 2000. The win marked Offill’s first of the season, and his first career triumph in the Midwest.
“Saturday night we really had one of the fastest cars in the pits,” Offill added. “To do what we did on foreign soil with one of the youngest crews in the pit area also makes it that much more special. Thanks to everyone that makes this possible.”
Kyle Offill would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West, Brown and Miller, Maas Bros., Reliable Lumber, Boise Cascade, Offill Family Farms, Weld Wheels, HRP, FK Shocks, Arai America Helmets, Hinchman Racewear, Maxim Chassis, and B. Scadden Design for their continued support.
BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 6, Wins: 1, Top 5’s: 2, Top 10’s: 4
ON TAP: Offill will battle with the All Star Circuit of Champions this Friday and Saturday at Park Jefferson Speedway.
