PETERSEN MEDIA: Heading into what will be his fourth season aboard a winged sprint car, Tracy, CA driver Kyle Offill will turn his primary focus towards the 410ci ranks in 2020 as he is set for his rookie season with the King of the West Series (KWS).
“I am definitely excited to be running the 410ci car full time in 2020,” Kyle Offill said. “We will still mix in some 360ci races when there are breaks in the KWS schedule, but it should be a great experience competing with some of the best that CA has to offer week in and week out.”
What makes Offill’s 2020 season that much more special is the fact that in King of the West action he will adorn the famed Country Builders No. 88 that was made famous by the likes of Rick Wright, Tom Henry, Terry McCarl, Rod Spencer, Craig Smith, Danny Olmstead, Rick Martin, Ricky Gaunt, Ronnie Day, Danny Lasoski, recently Jonathan Allard on a limited basis in 2019. Those drivers all ran for Weldon Offill, grandfather of young Kyle Offill.
“To bring back the Country Builders No. 88 car for the full year is also a pretty cool honor,” Offill added. “The car is really iconic to the sport in general over the years, and it means a lot to my family. With my Grandpa, Weldon, having success with some pretty notable names over the years, I’m looking forward to carrying it myself in 2020.”
The 2020 King of the West schedule is made up of 19 events at 10 different venues scattered through Northern and Central California. The KWS season will kick off on March 14th at Kern County Raceway Park in Bakersfield, CA and will conclude on November 7th at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, CA.
Some marquee events that the series will take part in include the Dave Bradway, Jr Memorial (Chico), and the Peter Murphy Classic (Tulare) in May, the upstart Marcel Cassulo Classic (Placerville) in June, the HK Classic (Watsonville) in July, as well as the Louie Vermeil Classic (Calistoga) in September.
When the KWS is idle, Offill will compete aboard the Team KO No. 2K machine in various 360 races as the schedule allows making for an action packed 2020.
Offill enters the year fresh off of a season that saw the youngster pick up his first winged 360ci win at Silver Dollar Speedway, as he also was in contention for the Track Championship through the final night of the season only to end up third chasing a couple of veteran standouts in Sean Becker and Andy Forsberg.
Dillon Paddock returns to Offill’s stable in 2020 as he will take over the duty of Crew Chief, and Colby Rennert will also be a part of the Offill crew. While Paddock and Rennert will handle car duties, Craig Smith will fill in as his schedule allows and work as a mentor for Offill as he makes his maiden voyage with the KWS.
Kyle Offill would like to thank Country Builders, Ochoco West, Brown and Miller, Maas Bros., Reliable Lumber, Boise Cascade, Offill Family Farms, FK Rod Ends, HRP, FK Shocks, Arai America Helmets, Hinchman Racewear, Maxim Chassis, and B. Scadden Design for their continued support.
2020 BY THE NUMBERS: Races: 0, Wins: 0, Top 5’s: 0, Top 10’s: 0
ON TAP: Offill and company are tentatively set to kick their 2020 season off during one of the February events at the Stockton Dirt Track before KWS action goes green on March 14th.
