Call Him King Kinser Again!
BAYI’OWN, Texas — Steve Kinser clinched the Pennzoil World of Outlaws championship in convincing style, winning Saturday night’s Lone Star Classic at Houston Raceway Park.
“We’ve played it conservative here the last month or so and got in pretty good shape (in the point standings), so now we’re going out to try to win races to finish off the year,” Steve Kinser said after claiming his 16th Pennzoil World of Outlaws Series championship.
Kinser was anything but conservative Saturday night, setting the fast time and winning his heat. He started sixth in the 30-lap feature.
