From Must-See Racing
HOLLY, Mich. – Kyle Flint is among the rising stars of the
Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series, plying his craft throughout
the racing season aboard an 800-hp winged sprint car at some of
the toughest racing venues in America.
It seems appropriate that Flint’s educational endeavors have been
aided recently by one of the greatest short track racers in history,
the late Rich Vogler.
Flint, 19, was recently announced as one of the 2011 recipients of
the Rich Vogler Memorial Scholarship Fund. Since 1991, dozens
of racing-related college students have been aided by the Vogler
Scholarship Fund as they further their education.
“It’s an honor to be selected by the Vogler Scholarship Fund,” said
Flint. “Rich Vogler is a great name in the history of racing, and I’m proud to be associated with the organization. I’m also grateful to the Scholarship Fund for their help, it was a pleasant surprise and very exciting for me and my family.”
Flint, of Litchfield, Mich., will begin his second year at Saginaw Valley State University, where he studies mechanical engineering. SVSU has significant auto racing connections, including a technical consulting relationship with the Xtreme Sprint Series.
“We’re proud to have a young man of Kyle’s character racing with us,” said Must See Racing president Jim Hanks. “He represents the next generation in our sport, and it’s encouraging to see a young man who is very serious about his education. The Vogler Scholarship Fund is
doing great things for racing, because it is helping to educate the people who will lead our sport into the future.”
The Xtreme Sprint Series features powerful winged sprint cars with 800-plus horsepower, racing at a variety of prestigious venues
including Bristol Motor Speedway, Salem Speedway, Anderson Speedway, Berlin Raceway Park, Winchester Speedway, AutoCity Speedway, Dells Motorsports Park, Rockford Speedway, and Kalamazoo Speedway.
