KINSER DODGES THE CAUTIONS TO TAKE HIS NON-STOP, 11TH WIN AT ROLLING WHEELS
ELBRIDGE, NY (OCTOBER 9, 2010) Steve Kinser is very familiar with Rolling Wheels Raceway Park in New York. Heck, he’s been racing there from time-to-time since his debut back in 1980. Defining consistency, Kinser has had 27 career starts at Rolling Wheels and has finished in the top 10 each time. Last Saturday night was no exception for the veteran as he captured his 11 th victory at the track using VP Racing Fuels’ M1 Methanol.
Kinser started the race in fourth and inched his way up to third on the opening lap putting himself in a contending spot with Daryn Pittman. Once Pittman was taken care of, Kinser worked on Jason Meyers for that third spot. Diving under Meyers coming off turn three, Kinser succeeded on lap 9.
The true excitement began as Kinser declared battle with his son Kraig for the top spot. The pair went at it for the next eight laps. Steve eventually took the lead from Kraig on lap 17 by taking the low line on turns one and two. For Kinser the $10,000 prize marked his ninth win of the season and the 561 st of his amazing career.
"We've always seemed to run good here and it's a place that suits my driving style and our race cars," said Kinser. "We've been running good everywhere, and just had a terrible three weeks and ran into too many things. That's the way it goes. We've had a good enough race car to win the points this year and I gave it away."
The veteran continued on non-stop, green-to-checkers, without a single caution. The other leaders stayed in traffic for the remainder of the contest. Kinser locked down the final nine laps aboard his Bass Pro Shops Maxim and claimed the checkered.
"It doesn't happen very often, but it does occasionally," he shared of a race going non-stop. "You put 24 good race cars out there like tonight and you'll get a race like that."
The World of Outlaws action will resume this Saturday, October 16 at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana for an event that was postponed by rain earlier this season. CLICK HERE to learn more about VP Racing Fuels' dirt track fuels.
