ROSSBURG, Ohio. - Floyd County dirt Late Model driver Brandon Kinzer and his No. 18 team made their return to historic Eldora Speedway September 5-7 for the 43rd edition of the ‘World 100.’ Kinzer made a strong showing in this year’s Eldora Speedway-hosted race.
The expanded format for the World 100 started with a pair of Twin 25s, which each boasted a $5,000 top prize. On Thursday night, Kinzer narrowly missed out on the 25-lap feature event after finishing fifth in his heat race and fourth in a B-Main. A similar story was told on Friday evening as Kinzer once again ran fifth in his heat race and fourth in his B-Main, which ultimately kept him out of the 25-lapper.
Things ratcheted up in a big way on Saturday at the “Big E,” as a $46,000 winner’s check was on the line in the World 100. Kinzer advanced up to seventh in his loaded heat race and later finished eighth in a B-Main after battling hard in the final stages for a transfer spot. While the Allen driver did not transfer into the 100-lap World 100, he did claim a strong third-place finish in the $1,000-to-win B-Scramble behind only winner Randy Weaver and runner-up Brad Neat.
