Here is an interesting like that I found.Kiss and Make Up This blog article gives some reasons why Kinser and Lasoski returned to the WoO after leaving the circuit for the NST last season.
According to a news release from Steve Kinser Racing, it was Kinser’s sponsor, Quaker State that influenced the King’s decision.
“The World of Outlaws with their new leadership, expanded schedule and new ESPN and SPEED TV deals have really positioned sprint car racing for growth,” said David Lerch, Director of Motorsports for Q. “Steve Kinser, Q and the World of Outlaws belong together and we are pleased to continue our partnership with Steve as he competes for his 21st World of Outlaws title.”
The news releases say that Q renewed their sponsorship with Kinser but do not give details of the sponsorship. There is another reason for the King’s return to the WoO. In a World of Outlaws news release, Steve Kinser said that the late Ted Johnson told Kinser before he died that he would like to see one major 410-winged sprint car series again.
