Dirt Series tour to Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois
and Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri from July 11-14 for
four high-profile series events. On Thursday night in the first
of two $12,000 to win programs at Granite City, Kyle ran second

second in heat race action and later slipped back to thirteenth
in the final rundown of the 60-lap headliner. Another $15,000 top
prize was on the line in the final event of the 'CMH Diamond Nationals'
at Wheatland on Sunday. The Brandon, Florida ace ran second in his
heat race, but caught the wall near the halfway mark in the main

Closes Out Long Weekend with Sixth Place Showing
(July 8, 2019)
Despite a pair of rain-outs over the long Independence
Day holiday weekend, Kyle Bronson and his #40b team still entered
a trio of races in the states of Ohio, West Virginia, and Illinois
from July 3-7. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series took Kyle Bronson
Motorsports to Portsmouth Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio and Tyler
County Speedway in Middlebourne, West Virginia for a pair of $12,000
to win contests. On Thursday in the 'Independence 50' at PRP, Kyle
utilized a provisional to gain access into the 50-lapper, but was
making a charge through the field when a flat tire on lap 45 caused
him to finish seventeenth in the final finishing order. At Tyler
County on Friday in the 'Topless 50,' Kyle placed second in his
loaded heat race prior to winding up thirteenth in the 50-lap headliner.
The hectic weekend then wrapped
up on Sunday evening at Quincy Raceway in Quincy, Illinois, as the
DIRTcar Summer Nationals sanctioned a $5,000 to win throwdown. Kyle
earned Fast Time honors in "Hell Tour" qualifying and
later ran second in his heat race. After starting fourth on the
grid in the 40-lap feature, the Brandon, Florida ace slipped back

and Bobby Pierce. Full results from each of these events can be

Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series scene in a pair of $12,000 to win
contests on June 28-29 at Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee
and Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky. On Friday night at "The
Taz," Kyle Bronson was forced to utilize a provisional to gain
access into the 50-lapper, unloaded a back-up car, and blasted all
the way up to fourth in the running order before a late flat tire
helped relegate him to a fifteenth place showing. In the annual
'Ralph Latham Memorial' at Florence on Saturday evening, Kyle earned
Fast Time honors during qualifying prior to finishing seventh in
his stacked heat race, second in his B-Main, and seventeenth in
the 50-lap headliner, which ran caution-free from green to checkers.

took the #40b team to Lincoln Speedway in Lincoln, Illinois on Sunday,
June 30 for a DIRTcar Summer Nationals tilt, which boasted a $5,000
payday. Kyle knocked down the fifth fastest lap in his group during
time trials and later advanced up to third in his loaded heat race.

fourth row in the 40-lap feature, but heavy rain showers wound up
canceling the race during a lap 16 caution period. There has been
no word yet on a possible outcome or rain date for the "Hell
Tour" battle. Full results from all three nights can be viewed

Busy on Hell Tour; Wins $7,500 at Granite City!
25, 2019) Kyle Bronson came out on top of a wild night
at Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois tonight to emerge
victorious for the first time on the DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour!
Kyle clicked off the fastest lap in Group B during the qualifying
session prior to scoring a dominating heat race triumph. After redrawing
the fourth starting spot before the drop of the green flag in the
40-lap feature event, Kyle led a lap or two early in the distance
before an aggressive slidejob by good buddy Tyler Erb caused him
to hit the brakes or get stuffed into the fence. The Brandon, Florida
ace then repeatedly made bids for the lead throughout the rough-and-tumble
contest before gaining ground for what would be a wild white-flag
lap. Kyle got a major run on the pacesetter Erb coming down the
backstretch on the final circuit and returned the favor - from earlier
in the race - with an aggressive slider getting into turn three.
The 29-year-old driver survived the melee to score the $7,500 windfall
ahead of Bobby Pierce, Brian Shirley, Brandon Sheppard, and Rusty
Schlenk! (Rick Neff Photo)
