VOLUSIA DRIVER PREVIEW: How Kraig Kinser stacks up at DIRTcar Nationals
Justin Fiedler
Kinser and team to target a good start at Volusia Speedway Park for 2020 season

Each week we’ll be looking at the statistics of how a full-time World of Outlaws driver has performed during the DIRTcar Nationals for the past five years, leading up to the Feb. 7-9 World of Outlaws event.

Consistency is key to Kraig Kinser. He and his Kinser Racing team began to build some last year, more than doubling the number of top-10 finishes he had from the year before.

As he and the team continue to build their program, the three-day event for the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series during the DIRTcar Nationals will be a good place for the Bloomington, IN driver to get a solid footing for the new season.

Kinser is still looking for his first win at the half-mile Volusia Speedway Park. But if his run of consistency continues into this year, he could have his best year at the Barberville, FL track. Here is how Kinser has performed at the DIRTcar Nationals for the past five years.
