The 2022 KKM Give Back Classic was a who's who in the world of 600cc Micro Sprint and Midget racing and Kyle Spence bested them all. That makes it three years in a row that a Hyper Chassis using EVO Fuel Injection won the biggest racing event of the year! Brian Carber took the win in 2020 & Steven Snyder Jr was victor in 2021.
This year saw 122 cars in competition at Port City Raceway in Tulsa, OK for the grand prize of a Keith Kunz Midget Chili Bowl ride plus $7,500 or $15,000 in cash, your choice! The cars were split into two prelim nights. Steven Snyder Jr claimed victory the first night after starting 8th and passing leader Daison Pursley and notables Frank Flud & Cannon MacIntosh for the win. Kyle Spence started second in the following prelim night and used the top lane to pass TJ Smith for the win.
With these two drivers starting first and second in the big race, Snyder took the lead for the first 22 laps. When encountering lapped traffic, Snyder went to the top but the bottom proved to be the place to run as Spence took the lead for the remainder of the race.
Kyle accepted the KKM Midget Chili Bowl ride along with $7,500 in lieu of the $15,000 cash optional prize. Kyle said this is a life long dream for him and is super excited to attempt to add to his 2 drillers he already has on his mantle.
