PETERSEN MEDIA- With four races scheduled over this past week, Tim Kaeding and his Roth Motorsports team put together a huge week as they tallied a win, fifth, and sixth place finishes as Sunday night’s race was rained out.
“We had a great week, and I cannot thank everyone involved with this team enough,” TK said.
Kicking the week off on Wednesday night, Kaeding got a very busy week off to a great start.
With 43 cars on hand at the Indiana quarter-miles, TK timed in seventh fastest, putting him in the third heat race.
Charging to the heat win, TK then went on to win the dash, putting his Roth Enterprises/HR Livestock Transportation/3H Cattle machine on the pole for the 40-lap feature event.
When the race went green, TK jumped out to the early lead, with Jason Sides on his tail.
Leading the first lap, TK would lose the lead on lap two, but took it back on lap three, only to have Shane Stewart take it from him on the fourth lap.
In a race that saw three and four wide racing at times, Kaeding would slip back to the fourth spot before working his way up to the lead on the 13th lap.
With Kyle Larson wrestling the lead from Kaeding on the 20th lap, TK stayed on the youngsters rear bumper, until he made a mistake in lapped traffic on lap 32, and TK took the lead back over for good, and held of Shane Stewart at the line to pick up his fifth series win of the year.
“We are not out here running for points, so our goal is to win races, and piss some people off,” he said. “This place reminded me of some of the tracks back home, and it was a blast to race on, and nice to get the win.”
With the win, TK and his team were crowned Indian State champions for the three races that were held in the state of Indiana, with Kaeding winning two of them.
On Friday night, the series shifted to the 34-Raceway in Burlington, IA, and TK turned in another strong performance.
Timing in seventh quickest, TK did not get the start he wanted in his heat, as he started third, and wound up finishing fourth, missing out on the dash, but transferring to the feature.
Starting 13th in the ‘A’, Tk showed why is one of the most electrifying drivers in the world, as he wasted no time working his way up to a fifth place finish at the stripe.
Saturday night, the scene was the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, KS.
With a light 21 car field gathered, TK timed in 10th fastest, putting him on the front row of his heat race.
Sharing the front row with a red-hot, Craig Dollansky, Kaeding settled for the second spot, and made his way into the night’s dash.
Starting eight in the dash, TK was able to get by Danny Lasoski and Donny Schatz to score a sixth place finish, putting him in the third row of the feature event.
In the feature event, TK just could not seem to get moving forward as he would have liked to.
Racing in the fifth and sixth spot all night, TK would close his weekend out with a sixth place finish.
“Overall this was a great weekend for the Roth Motorsports team,” he explained. “It is great to get World of Outlaw wins, and to run well and pick up top-fives and top-10’s, is really huge for our program, and helps us build moving forward.”
Tim 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.
