Inside Line Promotions – KOKOMO, Ind. – Kraig Kinser is excited to return to one of his home tracks for the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series event presented by High Performance Lubricants next week.
Kokomo Speedway will host the previously rained out race on Tuesday, Sept. 16.
“Even without my family ties, it’s an Indiana track, my home state,” Kinser said. “I love racing back home. It’s a track I look forward to going to every time.”
Kinser has won two World of Outlaws events at the quarter-mile oval, which is one of the tracks where he cut his teeth before going on the professional circuit.
“It’s a real short track,” he said. “You normally have quite a few cars there and the track changes throughout the night. With the way they have it now with the wall, the cushion builds up. It’s a fun track to run. You’ve really got to be on top of your car and trust your car at that place.”
Kinser’s father, Steve, is a 20-time series champion and he has claimed a series-leading six races at Kokomo Speedway. This event will mark the final time fans will get to watch “The King” race at the bullring as a full-time member of the World of Outlaws.
