KINZER MOTORSPORTS SUFFERED
5/15 - Another weekend, two more nights of disappointment haunted Brandon
Kinzer Motorsports as the team competed in Southern All-Star (SAS) and
Mid-Atlantic Championship Series (MACS) action May 9 and 10.
Friday the team traveled to Lawndale, NC for a $5,000 to-win event at Thunder
Valley Speedway. A slow qualifying time, 25 of 35, positioned Kinzer to run
seventh in the night's second heat. Then in true racing tradition, the #18
boldly ran to the front of the pack and secured a feature start with its second
place heat finish.
Despite feeling they had a "top-10 car", team Kinzer was again hit
with mechanical problems during the May 9 feature. While running 12th, the #18
was forced pit side, and finished a disappointing 21st.
Again seeking redemption from a poor showing on Friday, the team spent Saturday,
May 10 at the MACS seventh season series opener at the Thunder Ridge Racing
Complex in Prestonburg, KY. The 50-lap, $5,000 to-win event started with fast
time being set by Kinzer's Stardust Cruisers/Lonesome Pine Raceway/Commonwealth
Chiropractic/Alert Oil & Gas GRT Ford Taurus.
A second place finish in his heat sent Kinzer to start the fast dash in third
and finish in fourth. With his dash finish, Kinzer started the feature in fourth
and was quickly running second and a strong contender for the lead. Then on lap
25, Delmas Conley spun-out the #18 as they were heading down the back straight;
Kinzer finished 14th.
"Friday's finish was strictly the result of mechanical problems, but we
really had the chance to make a go of it on Saturday. No one is quite sure why
we were charged with the caution at Thunder Ridge, but everyone is thrilled at
how we were able to battle our way back into a competitive racing position.
Things are beginning to slowly turn around for us, and we are all eager to see
how the season continues," exclaimed Kinzer.
On a more personal note, Brandon Kinzer would like to announce the upcoming
addition to his happy home. Congratulations on your pregnancy.
Catch Brandon Kinzer Motorsports at their next event, May 14 at the Lavonia
Speedway in Lavonia, GA. Additional information on the #18 can be found by
