Kinser Completes Weekend Sweep by Winning at Huset’s Speedway 

Bloomington, Ind. native outlasts points leader Meyers and early leader Sweet  

BRANDON, S.D. — Aug. 20, 2011 — After a lackluster showing at the 51st Goodyear Knoxville Nationals, Steve Kinser and his #11 Bass Pro Shops/J.D. Byrider/ Chevrolet crew have found their groove again as the “King of the Outlaws” picked up his seventh win of the season and second victory in a row. The Bloomington, Ind. native led the final 14 laps to claim the checkers at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, S.D.

“It’s a great feeling to be back in victory lane for the second night in a row,” said a grinning Kinser. “The track started to rubber up a bit and we found something there about halfway through. It hooked up car really well and allowed us to get by the 14 and the 9. The whole crew really worked hard to get us back to where we were earlier this year and I think we are getting there. We certainly had a lot more speed the past two nights than we have had in the last month.”

Kinser started the feature event in the 8th position as Kerry Madsen led the field to green with youngster Brad Sweet to his outside. Once the green flag flew, Sweet powered the #9 Red Bull Maxim to the lead and held on thru the first 21 circuits. Sweet had to hold off numerous challenges from second place finisher Jason Meyers. The Clovis, Calif. native was battling hard with Sweet when Kinser snuck by.

“Another great run for us tonight in this All-Star Performance/DDNi/Media-Tile car,” Meyers said. ”Brad and I got to battling there pretty good and the track started laying rubber down. There’s not much left here on this right rear but we made it. Like I said, just another great night for us.”

While he didn’t get the win, Meyers was able to extend his points lead over Donny Schatz who finished 22nd after an early race caution. Kinser and Schatz are now tied for second in the standings, both 89 markers back. Sweet wound up finishing third but was upbeat after leading early.

“We had an awesome car tonight for sure,” Sweet said. “We had some pretty good battles going there with Steve and Jason. We’ll eventually learn how to win one of these things. It’d be some great medicine for Joey back home to see the #9 car back in Victory Lane.”

Terry McCarl was able to wheel his #55 machine to a fourth place finish with Sam Hafertepe Jr. rounding out the top-5. Pole sitter Madsen ran into some late race troubles and finished 15th. Early front runner Lucas Wolfe also had issues yet managed a tenth place finish.

The ‘Great Northern Tour’ continues for the Outlaws as the series heads to Black Hills Speedway on Tuesday, Aug. 23 and then it’s onto Castrol Raceway in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Aug. 26-27.

I want to thank all my family, friends and fans for their continued support. I’ll be back as soon as possible.”
