TK Puts On Impressive Charge at Dennis Roth Classic

PETERSEN MEDIA- Getting the nod to fill the seat of the Toyota/TRD powered No. 83 over the weekend, Tim Kaeding overcame an early race tangle to finish 10th on Friday night in Hanford, CA before charging from 25th to seventh during Saturday’s Dennis Roth Classic in Tulare, CA.

“Obviously I would have liked to have gotten off to a little better start with Roth Motorsports this past weekend, but I was really impressed with the speed we had and how well these Speedway Toyota’s run,” Tim Kaeding said. “We had a couple issues hamper us early both nights, but we made up for it in both feature events and I am so thankful to be back working with Roth Motorsports.”

TK kicked the weekend off on Friday night at the 2nd Annual Anthony Simone Classic in Hanford, CA where he timed the Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/Toyota/TRD backed No. 83 in 11th fastest in time trials.

Lining up third in his heat race, the San Jose, CA native had his elbows up in the six-lap heat as he worked his way forward to garner the win and earn a berth in the all-important Dash.

Finishing ninth in the Dash, ‘TK’ lined the Roth Motorsports entry up in the fifth row of the 30-lap feature event. Running inside the Top-10, Kaeding would be forced to check up in the opening laps and contact with his Roth Motorsports teammate sent him into a spin and forced him to the back of the pack.

From the rear of the field, TK would then put on a show. While much of the crowd focused on a great battle up front, Kaeding was making his own exciting moves from the back. Working his way forward form 24th, Kaeding capped the night off with a 10th place finish.

Shifting gears to the Thunderbowl in Tulare, CA on Saturday night for the inaugural Dennis Roth Classic, Kaeding would get timed in 22nd fastest before finishing eighth in his heat race.

Making wholesale changes prior to the ‘A’, Kaeding would have his work cut out for himself as he took the green flag from the 25th starting position.

From dead last, Kaeding quickly went to work banging the boards in a way that many fans have grown accustomed to seeing him do in Tulare, CA as he worked his way forward in a hurry.

Moving into the Top-15 on the 11th lap, Kaeding cracked the Top-10 on lap 21. Continuing to work his way forward, TK worked into eighth on the 22nd lap where he ran for the next few laps, until he passed Austin McCarl late to take the seventh position where he went on to cap off his hard charge.

“I really want to thank Dennis and Teresa Roth for giving me another opportunity,” TK said. “They have been so instrumental in my career, and I was really happy things worked out where I could run for them during their own race. I also want to thank Todd Ventura, Jason, Tara, and Cole Roth, as well as the Toyota/TRD team for all of their support.”

The Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, Toyota, TRD, Jason, Tara, And Cole Roth Cattle Co., Roth Investments, Speedway Engines, Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Vahlco Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Smith Titanium for their support.
