Inside Line Promotions – BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Nov. 5, 2019) – Kraig Kinser will pay homage to his famous father with a special throwback paint scheme this week during the Can-Am World Finals.
VanHorn Racing Graphics recently produced the retro paint scheme as a tribute to Steve Kinser – ‘The King of the Outlaws.’ Kraig Kinser will rock the scheme during the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series final event of the season, running Thursday through Saturday at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, N.C.
“Jeff VanHorn, who does our decals, is opening a new building and had an open house,” Kinser said. “He wanted to do the car. We talked about it for the Knoxville Nationals, but we didn’t have enough time. It’s a throwback. I think it looks pretty good.”
Kinser has been successful at the North Carolina oval, where he recorded results of sixth and ninth, respectively, earlier this season. He passed a combined 23 cars during the two World Finals main events last year, earning the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars during the season finale.
“It’s a track that has been good to us in the past,” he said. “We just hope that we can carry on positive runs there. We’re pretty confident. We try to bring as much confidence with us as possible without being overconfident. We realized it’s tough race. A lot of guys come to Charlotte at the end of the year. It’s turned into a big event.”
A pair of top-five finishes would give Kinser his most top fives and top 10s in a World of Outlaws season since 2017, when he ran 10 more races than this year. He is also seeking his first triumph since 2017.
“We’re looking to do the best we can,” he said. “We want to go in there and get a win. We want to end the year on a good note. Hopefully we have speed when we unload and can stay up there and adapt to the track conditions.”
