INDIANAPOLIS – Bad Boy Buggies, a leader in off-road utility vehicles for hunting and outdoor recreation, announced today a two-race sponsorship agreement with Steve Kinser Racing (SKR) and 2005 Knoxville Nationals champion Kraig Kinser for the 2013 Knoxville Nationals and DIRTcar World Finals events.
Bad Boy Buggies is backed by the resources and capabilities of E-Z-GO and its parent company, Textron Inc., a Fortune 500 manufacturer known worldwide for its powerful brands and products such as Cessna aircraft, Bell helicopters, and Greenlee tools. Bad Boy Buggies is a recognized leader developing models and innovations that have revolutionized the way outdoor enthusiasts use utility vehicles.
The brand will serve as primary sponsor on SKR’s No. 11k Sprint car driven by the 2004 World of Outlaws (WoO) STP Sprint Car Series Rookie of the Year. Kinser, who along with his father Steve, driver of the Tony Stewart Racing (TSR) TSR’s No. 11 Bad Boy Buggies/J.D. Byrider/Chevrolet Performance Maxim, are the only father-son duo to have win the storied Knoxville (Iowa) Nationals.
“We’re extremely pleased to be able to have the father/son duo of Steve and Kraig Kinser carry our brand at two of the most high-profile Sprint car races of the season,” said Eric Bondy, Vice President, Consumer Business for Bad Boy Buggies. “Our first year partnering with TSR and Steve has been very exciting. We certainly knew of his racing prowess and we couldn’t ask for a better representative for Bad Boy Buggies. When the opportunity came up to extend the partnership with Kraig, it was a very easy decision. We’re really looking forward to seeing both cars on the track.”
Kraig Kinser, who won the 2005 Knoxville Nationals title, will join his father Steve, 20-Time World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion, as a teammate for the Bad Boy Buggies brand during this year’s 53rd annual FVP Knoxville Nationals and the WoO season-ending DIRTcar World Finals. The potent duo will look to deliver Bad Boy Buggies its first Knoxville Nationals championship.
