"This is my seventh championship, and it still feels like the first - AWSOME!" remarked Joppa, Maryland, racer Kyle Denmyer. It has been two years since I have been on the top, and what a wonderful feeling."
Kyle Denmyer's favorite racetrack has long been Hunterstown Speedway in Hunterstown, Pennsylvania, and now he holds the tracks 340 Briggs and Stratton Championship.

Two years must seem like forever when you're a nine year race veteran at the measly age of fourteen. This was Denmyer's first full year running in the adult classes, which consisted of 47 events. And, by all measures, it was a very successful inaugural year, as he is the 2010 Hunterstown Speedway Briggs and Stratton 340 Champion. Denmyer also successfully competed in the Burris Tire Series, running with many of the most talented racers from the East Coast.

"Since I've moved up to non-restricted classes it has been tough," said Denmyer. "I had a lot of help to get where I am though. First thanks to K&N filters, they help to keep my Dart Power engine clean and running at its peak performance. Second, to my engine builder Mike Daugherty, and of course all our other sponsors.
At only 14-years-old, Denmyer already has the steely determination and focus to continue winning championships for a long time to come.

And third , I'd like to thank Missy Ford for her help with the chassis, both on and off the track. I'm gonna cherish this for a few months, because a championship is hard to come by with all the great competition in these classes."

In total for 2010 Kyle accumulated 16 feature wins, six second place finishes, six third place finishes, three fourth place finishes, three fifth place finishes, and 10 top-ten finishes .

"I raced in two points divisions this year, the first one being Hunterstown Speedway (every Saturday night from March-October), and the second was The Burris Money Series (a five race series)," explains Denmyer.

"At the last points race at Hunterstown Speedway I went out with a bang! I won both the heat and the feature, and that's how I won the championship. In the Burris Money Series I finished seventh in both heat and the feature in the last points race. And considering I was racing against the best on the East Coast, finishing ninth overall in points out of 42 racers is not too bad."

"After racing a total of 47 races this year I need a little break," said Denmyer. "I am going to take a short break for the holidays, then I am planning to race a few indoor races. But I never stop thinking about racing, I will be on my simulator and in the garage getting ready for next season."

Even away from the track Denmyer continually works on sharpening his driving skills by pitting himself against Vaughn Gittin "JR" on his driving simulator. Referred to simply as JR, Gittin's hometown also happens to be Joppa, Maryland. When he's not doing that he's out tooling around on his four-wheeler, or checking out what the freestyle motocross team, Metal Mulisha Crew is up to. Denmyer, already a well versed sponsorship veteran adds, "We would like to thank all those who made this possible - our sponsors, our friends, our family, and of course our fans. Thank you for a great year, and we look forward to 2011."
