Kinser Sweeps Dakota Duel

8486Jpg
If it weren't for the epic battle between Danny Lasoski and Mark Kinser for first place in the World of Outlaws points standings, Steve Kinser would have been alone in the spotlight in West Fargo, N.D.

"The King" lived up to his nickname by sweeping night one of the Duel in the Dakotas at Red River Valley Speedway.

Steve put together the fastest qualifying lap, won the first O’Reilly heat race and passed leader Danny Wood on Lap 5 of the preliminary feature to take the win.

“We haven’t been doing that well at three-day shows, especially during qualifying,” Steve said. “It’s nice to get a clean sweep here, we haven’t done that in a long time. The points on this three-day deal are so important. You really have to step up every time you get onto the track.”

Mark Kinser didn’t step up. In fact, he stepped back. Mark entered Thursday night’s action with a 14-point lead over Lasoski in the points but lost all of it when he crashed on Lap 18 after breaking his car’s rear end. Andy Hillenburg was caught up in the accident, too.

Lasoski went on to finish sixth, creating a tie atop the points standings at 4,623. Heading into the Duel in the Dakotas, Lasoski and Kinser had swapped the points lead at least six times. It was only a matter of time before they ended up tied. Unless the unthinkable happens, the points lead will change hands again Friday night.

Other winners on the first night of the Duel in the Dakotas were Wood, Stevie Smith and Sammy Swindell in the heat races; Swindell in the Channellock Dash; and Jeff Shepard in the B feature.
