NEWS... DUE TO LINGERING BACK ISSUES, BRANDON
KINZER HAS MADE THE DECISION TO SIT OUT THE MONTHS OF JUNE &
JULY IN HOPES OF HEALING HIS BACK PROPERLY. MORE INFO AS IT BECOMES
in Action in Johnny Appleseed Classic at Eldora
28, 2018) Following about a month-and-a-half
hiatus from the Dirt Late Model scene due to lingering back issues,
Brandon Kinzer and Kinzer Motorsports returned to action on Sunday
evening, May 27 at the hallowed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.
The American Late Model Series (ALMS) presided over the annual 'Johnny
Appleseed Classic' at the 1/2-mile speedplant and all eyes were
focused on the $3,000 payday in the final tune-up for the upcoming
'Dirt Late Model Dream.' Brandon Kinzer clicked off the third fastest
lap in his group during time trials prior to slipping to sixth in
his heat race. After grabbing the fourth transfer spot through the
B-Main, Brandon wound up finishing eighteenth in the final rundown
of the 25-lap sprint. Complete results from the "Big E"
can be located by clicking on www.eldoraspeedway.com.
Kinzer Follows Spring Nationals Tour to Volunteer State
15, 2018) The Kinzer Motorsports team was
back on the Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals Series trail on April
13-14 in a doubleheader in the Volunteer State of Tennessee. On
Friday night in a $5,000 to win battle at the bad-fast Tazewell
Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee, Brandon Kinzer grabbed the fourth
transfer spot through his B-Main and later rolled off from the outside
of the eighth row in the feature event. BK then felt like he had
a racecar that could finish up inside of the top ten in the 40-lap
affair, but eventually wound up a couple of spots shy of that mark
in the twelfth position.
Action quickly turned to Volunteer Speedway in Bulls
Gap, Tennessee on Saturday evening for the annual running of the
'Scott Sexton Memorial.' The Spring Nationals tour presided over
the $10,052 to win special, which drew a strong field of competitors
to the 4/10-mile speedplant. Brandon finished third in his loaded
heat race prior to starting the 52-lap main event from the inside
of the sixth row. In similar fashion to the night before, the Lexington,
Kentucky native felt like he had a good car capable of running inside
of the top ten, but circumstances throughout the race helped him
to slip to thirteenth at the unfurling of the checkered flag. Brandon
is currently seventh in the latest version of the Schaeffer's Oil
Spring Nationals Series point standings following the doubleheader
weekend. Full results can be located online at www.southernnationalsseries.com.

team embarked on the start of their 2018 racing season on March
30-31 in a Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals Series doubleheader
at Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Georgia. On Friday night in the $3,000
to win weekend opener, Brandon knocked down the fifth fastest time
in Group B during qualifying prior to running fourth in his consolation
race. After starting the 40-lapper from the outside of the ninth
row, Brandon was involved in an early tangle and soldiered on to
finish nineteenth in the final rundown at the super-slick oval.
At Senoia on Saturday evening, a strong field of competitors
signed into the pit area to vie for the $10,000 winner's check.
Brandon clicked off the fifteenth quickest lap in Group B during
time trials before finishing eighth in his heat race and sixth in
his B-Main. After receiving a provisional to gain access into the
60-lap grand finale, BK moved up ten spots to fifteenth in the running
order prior to slipping back a few positions late in the distance
to settle for an eighteenth place showing in a race that was won
by teammate Dale McDowell. Full results from the Senoia Raceway
double-dip can be viewed online at www.southernnationalsseries.com.

19, 2017) Brandon Kinzer and his #18 team
wrapped up their version of the 2017 racing season on Saturday,
November 18 with the 29th edition of the 'Gobbler' at Boyd's Speedway
in Ringgold, Georgia. A solid field of 26 competitors signed into
the pit area for the Schaeffer's Oil Southern Nationals Bonus Series
finale, which paid $5,000 to the winner. Brandon tripped the clock
third fastest in his group during the time trial session and later
picked up the win in his consolation event. The Lexington, Kentucky
driver then rolled off from the outside of the third row in the
daytime affair and quickly moved up to the fourth position in the
50-lap contest. Unfortunately, BK zigged when he should have zagged
on a couple of different occasions and lost a trio of spots - eventually
slipping back to seventh at the unfurling of the checkered flag.
