Kyle Hirst

Hirst healing with rest after nasty crash - By Bobby Gerould - July, 4, 2006 - ...Kyle Hirst knows he will race again soon. He just isn't sure when. "I want to race at P-Ville on Tuesday (today) but everyone is telling me to wait until the weekend", he said. Hirst flipped his sprint car wildly Saturday night at Placerville Speedway and took a trip to the hospital where tests indicated he suffered no broken bones. He said he still has a "horrible headache" and he is sore but other than that he feels okay.
