Kyle-Hirst-2013PETERSEN MEDIA- Though he was victorious on Friday night, and scored a third place finish on Saturday night, Kyle Hirst and his entire Roth Motorsports team are sending their thoughts and prayers to Peter Murphy, who was injured during the King of the West race on Saturday night.


“Unfortunately when things like this happen, it is the reality of the sport,” Hirst said. “Our entire team is sending our thoughts our to Peter Murphy and his family, and racing just doesn’t seem important right now, and as a team we are glad that they called the race on Saturday night.”


After Murphy’s wreck on the 14th lap, the race was ended, and Hirst finished third.


Just one night earlier, Hirst wired the field at the Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, CA to score berth in the Johnny Key Classic scheduled for later this summer.


Kyle and his Roth Motorsports team would like to thank Roth Enterprises, HR Livestock Transportation, 3H Cattle,  Mobil1, FK Rod Ends, Weld Wheels, Brown and Miller Racing Solutions, Kent Performance, Kaeding Performance, and Astro Titanium for their support in 2013.
