Salute To The King - Steve Kinser

July 7, 2014, 10:45 PM by Travis Fossing

Salute To The King - Steve Kinser
BRANDON, SD -

Steve Kinser has lived up to his billing as "King of the Outlaws" for more than three decades.  So, it should come as no surprise that his 37th and final season with the World of Outlaws has been tabbed "Salute to the King".

A 20-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series champion, Steve Kinser has won every major sprint car race during his illustrious career, including the Knoxville Nationals twelve times.  His 577 career Outlaws wins are nearly twice as many as his closest competitor, and while other opportunities surfaced, the dirt-track has been, and will always be, Kinser's home.

"It's always been my love and what I wanted to do, and had a lot of success doing it.  This gave me opportunities to run the Indianapolis 500 once, and the Daytona 500 once, too.  But, sprint cars have been my bread and butter," Kinser said.

Kinser won his first World of Outlaws championship in 1978, and while his competitive spirit has never wavered, father time has finally caught up with the "King".

"When my eyesight started getting a little worse and I couldn't keep the weight off my body anymore.  Your body starts telling you.  When you get 60-years-old, it's about time to let the 30 and 40-year-old guys have it," Steve Kinser said.

"Time flies.  Especially when you're running sprint cars all the time.  As grueling as your schedule gets, and all the traveling that we do, in the blink of an eye, it seems like it's already here," Steve Kinser's son Kraig Kinser said.

Kraig Kinser says his dad's pending departure hasn't sunk in yet, but he knows he'll miss him in many ways.

"Another person to bounce an idea off of every once in a while...I'll definitely miss him there.  But, I'll miss him...just not seeing dad everyday, probably", Kraig Kinser said.

And while the "King" may be stepping down, don't count him completely out.

"I might race some myself.  I'll make that decision here at the end of the year," Kinser said.

Steve Kinser has won once this season, and is currently eighth in the World of Outlaws point standings --- one spot ahead of son Kraig.
