CHICO, Ca. (August 4, 2017) — Paradise driver Kyle Hirst returned to victory lane Friday night at Silver Dollar Speedway driving for Roth Motorsports. The win wasn’t easy for Hirst who at one point slid up over the cushion in turn four and surrendered the lead to Bud Kaeding. However, Hirst dove to the bottom entering turn one and slid back up in front of Kaeding to regain the lead. Hirst went on to win the 25-lap main event. Sean Becker was in the mix all night long. He fought hard to get around Kaeding late in the race to secure second spot. Kaeding finished third. Andy Forsberg flirted with a top three finish all night but came home fourth. Hirst now has 26 lifetime sprint car wins at Chico. “I almost gave that one away,” said Hirst in victory lane. “But I have to thank Troy, Cory and Michael and Dennis and Teresa Roth for giving me all I need to go fast.” The race was halted on lap eight when Richard Brace Jr. went for a wild ride in turn three. He walked away but the car was done for the night. Kaeding and Hirst picked up heat race wins. Becker earned the fast time award by turning a lap of 11.802. A total of 15 cars attended point race 12.
