‘King of the Outlaws’ To Make Final Run at 21st World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series Crown During 2014 Campaign Dubbed ‘Salute to the King’
INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 11, 2013) – Steve Kinser, the 20-time World of Outlaws (WoO) STP Sprint Car Series champion, announced today the upcoming 2014 WoO campaign will be his final season chasing the series championship. The Tony Stewart Racing (TSR) driver, who won the series’ first championship during the WoO inaugural season in 1978, is looking to join a long list of greats who have closed their career hoisting championship hardware. His final season with the WoO, called “Salute to the King,” kicks off in February with the DIRTcar Nationals in Florida.
Kinser, an icon in short-track racing, has dominated the WoO series during his 36 seasons of competition. The Bloomington, Ind., native has earned 576 career WoO A-Feature triumphs and has filled the record book with accomplishments that likely will not be matched. His goal for this 2014 season is to add to those records while battling for the title.
“We’re really excited to make one more run at a World of Outlaws championship,” said Kinser, who will celebrate his 60th birthday June 2. “Racing with the Outlaws has been my life for almost 40 years. It’s all I’ve known. My family has been around it. I’ve had the pleasure of running up and down the road racing all across this incredible country, and even in Canada, Mexico and Australia with this series. I knew it wasn’t going to last forever. I feel like we have a great team here capable of winning a lot of races and challenging for the championship this year.”Full Story...
