July is known as the “Month of Money” on the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series circuit thanks to the high-stakes races contested throughout the month. After wrapping up the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway last weekend, the series returns to the east coast for the second time this season, with six features in a nine-day span:
· The Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup Twin 30s at Lernerville Speedway (PA) – raced on July 15th – Donny Schatz and Cody Darrah were the winners
· Lincoln Speedway (PA) – July 17th
· The Summer Nationals at Williams Grove Speedway (PA) – July 18th and 19th
· Lebanon Valley Speedway (NY) – July 20th
· Fulton Speedway (NY) – July 23rd
“With all the races coming up and the travel they entail, this is a time of the year when you really have to pay attention to the small details,” said Kraig Kinser, WoO driver and son of retiring champion Steve Kinser. “We have been working on a number of little things lately, especially our qualifying package and hopefully some of that pays off this week. The Silver Cup always has a great field of cars and then when we get to Central Pennsylvania, we know how tough the competition there always is. We’ll keep plugging away and working at it day in and day out.”
Kinser finished 14th last season at Lebanon Valley Speedway; Fulton Speedway is hosting its first WoO STP Sprint Car Series event since 2010.
Kinser finished 18th in last Friday’s Knight Before the Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway and 22nd in the 31st running of the Kings Royal on Saturday night. He is currently ninth in the series standings on the strength of 18 top-10 finishes.
“We’ve had some good runs at the tracks we are headed to and also have had some bad luck at some of them,” said Kinser. “You have to treat each race as a new one and put the race before it behind you, no matter where you finish. You want to ride the strong finishes as long as you can, but with a bunch of races in a short time, you have to always be looking forward. This is the type of stretch that makes the World of Outlaws the series that it is.”
