2009 Excitement and Frustrations

4/29/2009

Kyle is racing at a new level this year and it has been both exciting and frustrating. This year could be a break out year for him. It started out great with the heat race win at Devils Bowl but disappointment in the A main with car handling issues. Rain outs at OKC on the 27th and 28th and also at I30 on 4-18 were disappointing as Kyle is raring to go race as much as possible.

On 4-4 at LA Raceway Kyle started out awesome by winning another heat race. In the A Main, Kyle was running second and challenging Brian Brown for the lead near the halfway point of the race when a caution came out. As Brown checked up to slow down Kyle swerved to avoid running into the back of him and slid off the end of the track. This put Kyle to the back of the pack on the restart, but, in the end, he came back to finish 14th, a disappointing finish in what could have been a potential win or at least a podium finish.

On 4-25 the ASCS Sooner region opener began at Creek County near Tulsa. After starting 7th. In the heat Kyle passed several cars to finish 3rd. With finish and passing point tallied Kyle had qualified for the A Main 4th in points. He took the lead of the race on the second lap and looked like he may pull away from the pack until a caution flew for a spun car. On the restart while trying to protect the bottom from challengers Kyle spun and got hit damaging the car and flattening the RF tire. We changed the tire and he restarted at the back and passed a couple of cars before pulling off the track with problems. He was credited with an 18th place finish. Another what could have been night!

The good news is he is running very well and challenging for wins! It is just a matter of time until he puts it all together to show what he is truly capable of.
