Just Like Old Times: Sammy Swindell & Steve Kinser Battle for Win at Huset’s Speedway
Posted Thursday, Jul 01, 2010

Brandon, SD — The scene has played out countless times over the years, as Sammy Swindell Steve Kinser have been battling for wins with the World of Outlaws since the series inaugural season in 1978. Well over 30 years later, the Hall of Famers are still mixing it up and battling tooth and nail against each other as well as against drivers that were not even born when they began their amazing careers. The pair battled right down to the wire on Thursday night at Huset’s Speedway, with Swindell coming out on top to earn his second World of Outlaws win of the season before a very large crowd.

Swindell took the lead from Lucas Wolfe on the 30th lap. Coming to the white flag, Kinser took the lead off turn four as the duo charged down the front straightaway, with Swindell battling right back and retaking the top spot in turn one. He would work his way through lapped traffic on the final lap around the high-banked bullring en route to the $10,000 triumph which was 270th of his illustrious World of Outlaws career.

“I’m just happy to get another win,” said Swindell. “We’ve been close there for quite a few of them. We just needed the breaks to go our way and tonight they did. I just had to get in the right place at the right time. We definitely had a bit more speed at the end.”

Swindell battled Kinser for second for most of the race before getting around him on the 28th lap and setting his sights on Lucas Wolfe. He dove under Wolfe in turn four on the 30th lap using a slide job to take the lead, with Kinser coming with him to snag second, setting up the final five lap shootout.

“After one start, I knew what Steve (Kinser) was going to do, and I was able to go to the top and as soon as he moved back up I went down and was able to get him to move down, which is what I wanted to do,” explained Swindell, who is a three-time World of Outlaws champion. “He kind of helped me out by doing that and let me go right on around. Then it was a chance of running Lucas (Wolfe) down and seeing what we could do.”

The race saw two cautions and one red flag, with the final 25 circuits going non-stop, putting the leaders in lapped traffic for a good portion of the second-half of the contest. Swindell was able to maneuver very well in traffic aboard the Big Game Treestands Maxim en route to his 11th career win at Huset’s Speedway and his first at the track since 2004.

“We just need these (races) to go straight through and that will be to my advantage when we get to traffic,” shared the native of Germantown, Tennessee. “Tonight it helped me and then right there at the end I thought it was going to hurt me, but it seemed like every time I really needed it, guys got out of the way. That’s hard to beat when things work that way and I’ve had them go the other way a lot of times. That’s how you get the wins when you get the breaks.”

Lucas Wolfe led at the drop of the green, with Kinser quickly charging from the fifth starting spot to second. He challenged Wolfe early in the going before the first caution flag of the night waved on the fifth lap. On the ensuing double file restart Wolfe chose the low line and led the field into turns one and two, when the red flag came out for Jac Haudenschild who got upside on the front straightaway. By way of rules, the following restart was a single file, since the wreck followed the double file restart. Wolfe again charged down the front straightaway to lead the field into turns one and two.

Kinser wound up second in the Bass Pro Shops Maxim to earn his series leading 29th Top-10 finish of the season. He also cut a large chunk off of Joey Saldana’s lead in the series standings and now is just 10 point back as he chases his record 21st title.

Wolfe led 29 laps en route to finishing third in the Allebach Racing Maxim, as he continues to close in on his first World of Outlaws A-Feature win. The native of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania chose the low side of the track both times he was out from on a double file restart.

Jason Meyers, who began the night by turning the fastest lap in time trials finished fourth in the GLR Investments KPC and gained a number of points as well in the standings and now, is just 33 points behind Saldana as he chases his first series title.

Craig Dollansky recovered from a lap-8 incident which forced him to restart as the last car on the lead lap to charge back through the field to finish fifth in the Big Game Treestands Maxim.

Donny Schatz was sixth in the Armor All/STP J&J, with Kraig Kinser seventh aboard the Quaker State Maxim. Paul McMahan was eighth in the Great Clips Maxim with Brooke Tatnell ninth piloting the Southern Crane & Tractor Supply machine. Mark Dobmeier came from 17th to finish 10th in the Senske & Son J&J to earn the KSE Racing Products Hard Charger Award.

Joey Saldana, the current World of Outlaws point leader, finished 12th in the Budweiser Maxim.
