Young drivers wait for a phone call. One call. That call, the call that changes the future of their racing career. Earlier this year, Kyle Denmyer received that call.

Chris Hiser called the successful dirt kart racer and offered Denmyer his first big break, a ride in a 358 Sprint Car at the legendary Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania.

Kyle Denmyer has experienced five wins in twelve starts in Kart racing.


"It has been my biggest dream and goal for as long as I can remember (to drive a Sprint Car)," Denmyer said. "For it to finally come true is just indescribable."

Denmyer was off to another strong start in his kart when the call came to jump in Hiser's 358 Sprint Car.

"When all of this took place, it kind of threw a curveball at me so I haven't raced as much as I'd like," Denmyer said. "My team and I have been doing a lot of testing just trying to get comfortable with the car and get me some seat time. But the kart races I have run have been very successful, with five wins in twelve starts."

Denmyer has had a lot to learn at Lincoln Speedway. An incredibly fast dirt track that is famous for eating racecars, Denmyer fell victim last month when he suffered his first major crash in a Sprint Car. Thankfully, he was all right, and there was someone willing to pick his team back up.

"That was one of the hardest moments for not only me but my team, who works so hard to keep the car going," Denmyer said. "But it wasn't a day later and I got a call from my car owner telling me that we have a sponsor, Allied Well Drilling, to put a new car in the shop.

"That lifted my spirits right up, knowing that I have such good sponsors willing to keep me going."

The wreck put Denmyer's season in perspective, allowing him to refocus his goals for the rest of the season and concentrate on building experience towards next season.

Denmyer said he would be willing to take on more racing if the opportunity presented itself, all in the hopes of gaining even more of the ever-important seat time.

"I really don't have too high of goals for the rest of the season," Denmyer said. "I just want to continue getting comfortable with the car and the way you drive it because it's all new to me and my crew.

"Eventually I want to be hitting it hard and taking K&N Filters and Chris Hiser Motorsports to victory lane as much as possible."

Denmyer is currently attending Hartford Tech, where he is studying welding, something that can be very useful when working on his own racing machines. He has two years left in school and then hopes to make a living behind the wheel.

As with any competitive racing team, Denmyer has a loyal and strong group of supporters behind him, and K&N Filters is one of those companies.

"I have to give it to K&N's air filter, it keeps my Jim Bowen 358 engine running at the top level," Denmyer said about his Sprint Car. "With running on dirt all the time, we are very hard on filters, but K&N is definitely by far the only filter that will hold up to the abuse we put it through and keeps us running strong."
