Two-Time and defending King of the West Champion, Kyle Hirst, is set to go after his third consecutive King of the West Championship in 2015 aboard the Main Motorsports No. 35M machine.

 

  

Most of Troy Renfro’s life has centered on sprint car racing as a mechanic. From his roots in Maryland and central Pennsylvania, he has traveled up and down the road with the World of Outlaws, just about every other sprint car sanction, and has been involved on the local scene as well. With the creation of TKS Motorsports, he is now a car owner! Veteran Don Droud Jr. will be the driver of the TKS Motorsports #2KS. The team will compete weekly at the Knoxville Raceway.

Say What!

"On the last restart I thought I might want to restart up top but my car was pretty good on the bottom. Brian's a tough competitor and he's proven that he can win these races too… Very happy to get our first win this early in the season and hopefully we keep this momentum for the season." Shane Stewart winning Las Vegas NV WoO Wednesday

“I really thought driver error cost us another one right there. I was fogging up my shield bad at the restart, and just really had trouble seeing. I don’t even know what happened after I got in the wall, but I saw Darland going for it and just tried to stay in it to get back by him. If I’m ever gonna catch him in all-time wins, I’ve gotta keep my elbows up!” said Ballou, who now owns eleven wins in his career. Robert Ballou winning night 2 of East Bay Raceway USAC sprints.

 "I tell you what; this team has got some momentum right now. It just seems like we can't do anything wrong, I knew all we had to do was win the start, and once I did I just stayed around the tires. My highs are like 7,500RPM, I don't think I went any further than half-throttle at anytime. I got too lapped there and I knew if I just followed them, I'd be alright. I was actually trying to let them get away from me but I just kept getting slower and slower like I was pulling them back to me." Aaron Reutzel winning Lucas Oil ASCS at Bubvba Raceway Park Friday.

“It feels great to be back in this car and to be back to winning. I can’t even explain how excited I am for this season. We’ve been running well, and tonight we put it all together. It was tough to pass, but it was also really difficult to get around this place tonight. I gave Dave one opening and he caught me, but I was just lucky enough to get a second chance. Hopefully, we can qualify decent and give ourselves a chance again tomorrow,” Kevin Thomas Jr winning night 1 of East Bay Raceway USAC sprints.
