Bad Boy Buggies Backing Both Kinsers


“When you add a partner for big races like the Knoxville Nationals and the World Finals, it provides the team a lot of positive reinforcement,” Kraig Kinser said. “Bad Boy Buggies is recognized as a leader in the field of outdoor vehicles, and they want to be associated with leaders in Sprint car racing. Obviously, they are already involved with Tony Stewart Racing as my dad’s sponsor, so to join them and run similar cars is a great opportunity. Knoxville is such a special place for me. Both because of all the good memories of being there with my dad and seeing him win the Nationals all those years, but also because I was fortunate to win it as well. We’re looking forward to hopefully making the Knoxville Nationals a really special event for Bad Boy Buggies as well.”

The special-schemed No. 11k Bad Boy Buggies/MVT/Casey’s General Stores/King Racing Products will be unveiled during a public ceremony under the grandstands at legendary Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway at noon Aug. 6.

“It’s going to be special to have Bad Boy Buggies partner up with both Kraig and myself for the Knoxville Nationals,” said Steve Kinser, the 12-time Knoxville Nationals champion. “Eric and his staff have been great to work with all season long and now to have them add Kraig to their group for the Nationals and World Finals continues to strengthen the program.”

Bad Boy Buggies looks to continue enabling outdoors enthusiasts of all types with the best vehicle technology, and for recreational riders seeking to tackle the trails to enjoy the outdoors at the highest level. In an effort to engage some of the most brand-loyal fans in all of sports, the company has partnered with TSR and will launch the “Win the King’s Ride” program July 11 that will result in one lucky fan winning a one-of-a-kind, Steve Kinser-themed Recoil iS. The campaign kicks off in advance of this Saturday’s 30th annual Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.

“I’ve been involved with several promotions during my career, but this one may be one of the coolest,” Steve Kinser said. “Bad Boy Buggies has taken it a step further with this ‘Win the King’s Ride’ promotion, where someone is going to win a package of things, including the customized RECOIL iS. I can tell you whoever wins it is going to be thrilled. I’ve had mine out on my property and these things are a lot of fun to drive. Obviously, we’re really thrilled to be involved with these two really exciting announcements.”
