ALLEN – The Kinzer Motorsports team traveled to 201 Speedway in Sitka and Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana Friday-Saturday for a pair of unsanctioned special events.
On Friday at 201 Speedway, the annual Bob Miller Memorial was held with a $10,000-to-win top prize. Floyd County native Brandon Kinzer locked down the ninth-quickest lap overall during the qualifying session prior to grabbing the fourth transfer spot through his heat race. After starting the 50-lap headliner from the outside of the sixth row, Kinzer moved up inside of the top 10 before suffering terminal problems under the hood near the halfway mark. The race mishap dropped Kinzer to 18th in the final finishing order.
At Brownstown’s legendary 1/4-mile oval on Saturday, a $5,000 top prize was on the line in the 2nd Annual Born Free 40. Kinzer clicked off the fifth-fastest time in his group during qualifying and later placed fifth in his heat race. The Lexington-based driver then rolled off 15th in the 40-lap main event. Kinzer, however, quickly made his way up to sixth in the running order. Unfortunately for the veteran Late Model driver his soft tire combination faded late. Kinzer eventually slipped back in the field to finish 10th.
