The Volusia Speedway Park Winter Nationals Sprint Cars




Kinser Races to Victory In World of Outlaws Sprint Series Finale at

Barberville, FL — February 13, 2005 — By World of Outlaws Sprint PR

It seems as if Steve Kinser has won at nearly every racetrack in the
country, but one place he had never seen the winner’s circle was
Volusia Speedway Park.

In front of packed grandstands Sunday at the 34th Annual Winter
Nationals, Kinser changed that in dominating fashion. He topped
qualifying with a 13.600-second lap around the half-mile banked dirt
track, then won a Dash and finished off the night by capturing the
checkered flag in the 30-lap A-main for his first victory this season
and the 514th feature win in his legendary career.

Craig Dollansky also was fast throughout the night in his Karavan
Motorsports machine. He worked the high side smoothly on Lap 10 to grab
the lead, but Kinser masterfully cruised along the bottom, recapturing
the top spot only three laps later and going on to collect the $10,000
top prize.

Dollansky held on to finish second, and was followed by Jason Meyers,
Fred Rahmer and Kraig Kinser in the caution-free feature.

Kinser’s victory came only two nights after he finished second to Jeff
Shepard in the Outlaws’ opening event at Volusia. In that race, Kinser
made adjustments to his car that he believed cost him a shot at

On Sunday, Kinser, an owner-driver, made few adjustments.

“It wasn’t the one I made the other night,” he said of the slight
changes to his car. “Basically, we went back to what we thought was
right the other night, except for that one change we made under red
[Friday night]. We made a few little changes but everything was good
tonight. After the Dash, we left the car alone.”

Dollansky, who finished third Friday night, pushed his way through
lapped cars in an attempt catch Kinser, but it was to no avail.

“We would have been happier coming out of here with a win tonight,
Dollansky said. “It was close. It was a good race. If we could have
gotten through lapped traffic a little bit better a few times I think
it would have been a different outcome. Steve did a real good job and
ended up with the trophy so we’ll go again in Tulare.”

Dollansky’s run of two top-three finishes at Volusia was impressive,
considering 56 cars attempted to qualify Friday night and 43 Sunday

“There’s a lot of parity with all these race teams,” said Dollansky,
whose team seems satisfied with the results his J&J chassis has
provided. “This weekend you had all the best teams in the country. It
made it very tough for a lot of good teams to even make it into the
A-main. I was happy with the progress our team made.”

For Meyers, a third-place run seemed unlikely after he missed the
transfer spot in a heat race. But he bounced back to win the B-main and
surge through the field for a solid finish.

“It was definitely a good way to finish up,” Meyers said. “There was
kind of a lot of anger from missing that heat race. The guys did a
great job on tire choice for the feature. We made the agreement going
with the tires that we did that I had to run the bottom. I could run
the top for a couple of laps and that was it. It paid off. We had a
real good car on the bottom.

“When we pulled up to the scales, everybody said good job and I didn’t
even know where we finished.”

The victory wraps up an extremely positive Speed Weeks for Kinser as
the series prepares to head to the West Coast.

“It’s always good to get started well,” said Kinser, a 19-time
champion. “We came out and shook the car down Thursday and ran second,
ran second the next night and won tonight so we’ve been in the hunt
every night. That’s what you’ve got to do.”

Heat race winners included Donny Schatz, Danny Smith, Dean Jacobs and
Dollansky, while Kinser and Sammy Swindell captured the Dashes.

Kinser’s victory and the World of Outlaws Sprint Series action from
Volusia Speedway Park can be seen on The Outdoor Channel at 8 p.m.
