The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series inaugural visit to California's Antioch Speedway was a memorable one with Steve Kinser holding off Kyle Larson to score another win for his team owner Tony Stewart.
“I’ve never been to this track before but a win is nice,” said Kinser. “Lapped traffic was key for us tonight and I snuck under Craig (Dollansky) right before he had some issues. From there on it was just about hanging on and doing what we needed to do. We had a stretch of races in there this season where we were didn’t have the finishes we wanted and we’ve been really good lately. This point battle is always tough but we’re winning races and that’s the best way to catch someone.”
Larson, who earned his first Outlaws win last Saturday night at Silver Dollar Speedway, was in the process of making a charge on Kinser when a late-race red flag came out for Craig Dollansky's flip in turns one and two.
“That late race red didn’t help us much,” said Larson after finishing second to the "King of the Outlaws." “We had a great car tonight, it worked really well since we started 14th and got all the way up here.
Before that last restart, I was on the bottom and tried to dirty it up a bit and mess with Steve a little bit. Unfortunately when I did that, it kicked up some dust and dirt in Jason Sides face and I’m sorry about that. He got me back under the yellow. All in all, not a bad two nights for us.”
Tim Kaeding, Brad Sweet and Jason Sides rounded out the top five.
The World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series is scheduled to invade Clay County Fair Speedway in Spencer, Iowa on Friday, September 16th.
