BK Invades Talladega Short Track
& Rome Speedway for $4k Specials
(May 8, 2017)
Brandon Kinzer and his #18 team rolled into Talladega Short Track
in Eastaboga, Alabama and Rome Speedway in Rome, Georgia on May
6-7 for a pair of $4,000 to win special events. The Southern All
Stars Dirt Racing Series (SAS) invaded TST on Saturday evening
for a big show, which accompanied NASCAR's visit across the road
at Talladega Superspeedway. Brandon stopped the clock third fastest
in his group during qualifying and later started the 40-lap feature
from the inside of the third row. After a skirmish dropped him
back to eleventh in the running order, BK drove his new Sweet-Bloomquist
machine all the way back up to sixth to trail only winner Brandon
Overton, Dale McDowell, Dallas Cooper, Cory Hedgecock, and Todd
Morrow at the checkered flag.
At Rome on Sunday night, the Ultimate Super Late Model Series
presided over another $4,000 to win shootout. Brandon clicked
off the fourth quickest time in his group during the qualifying
session prior to rolling off from the inside of the fourth row
in the 40-lapper. The Lexington, Kentucky native was then running
solidly inside of the top ten before unfortunately getting caught
up in a crash on a restart. Brandon retired from the event in
the eighteenth position while his de facto teammate Dale McDowell
went on to capture an exciting victory! Complete results from
both weekend stops can be accessed online at www.sasdirt.com

at Ponderosa Speedway in Junction City, Kentucky, a $4,000 winner's

Kinzer timed in fourth quickest in his group during the qualifying
session prior to scoring a victory in his stacked consolation
race. After starting the 40-lap feature event from the inside
of the fourth row, Brandon guessed wrong on tires for the caution-free
affair and eventually wound up thirteenth in the final finishing
At Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky on Saturday evening,
a $5,000 top prize was up for grabs in the Easter weekend finale.

session at the undersized 1/2-mile speedplant and later grabbed
the fourth and final transfer spot through his heat race. The

of the ninth row in the 50-lapper and was hovering just outside
of the top ten when he went down a lap to leader Brandon Overton.

position. Complete results from both weekend shows in the Commonwealth

Racing Form Partnership for 2017 Season!

Racing (SMR) have jointly announced today that they have formed
a partnership heading into the 2017 racing season. Essentially,
the two Super Late Model teams will share resources, sponsorship,
and crew members for drivers Brandon Kinzer and Dale McDowell.
Kinzer Motorsports will remain located in Allen, Kentucky for
the time being, while the newly-formed Shane McDowell Racing (SMR)
team will be headquartered at Richard Childress Racing in Welcome,
"I am thrilled with this alliance that we have formed with
Shane McDowell Racing and it should be fruitful for all parties,"
quoted Brandon Kinzer recently. "I have been friends with
Dale and Shane for a long time and I really admire how they handle
themselves both on and off the racetrack. With different businesses
and family obligations taking up the bulk of my time, I just don't
have the time to race like I need to and like you have to these
days to keep up with everything that is going on with these cars.
Aligning ourselves with Dale and Shane will not only help their
program with added resources, but it will strengthen Kinzer Motorsports
as well being in the same equipment and having their expertise
and experience at our disposal."
