SITKA - Brandon Kinzer and his No. 18 Dirt late Model team made their second straight trip to nearby 201 Speedway in Sitka on Thursday night for a special visit by Ray Cook’s Spring Nationals tour. A strong field of 38 competitors piled into the pit area to vie for the $4,000 winner’s check. Kinzer started his night by clicking off the fourth fastest lap in Group B during the qualifying session, which locked him into the outside of the fourth row for the start of the 40-lap main event. The veteran driver eventually finished sixth in a talent-heavy feature field.
Aboard his MB Customs/Gaerte mount, Kinzer dropped back a few spots early before making a charge back through the talented field. At the completion of the race, which went from green to checkers following an opening lap caution, Kinzer found himself in the sixth finishing position. The Allen ace trailed only winner Eddie Carrier, Jr., Rod Conley, R.J. Conley, Victor Lee, and Steve Casebolt.
