ALLEN - The Kinzer Motorsports team and Allen driver Brandon Kinzer recently returned home from a weeklong stay in the Sunshine State of Florida, as they competed in Raceweeks 2007 at the Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., Feb. 12-17. Against some of the stiffest Dirt Late Model competition in the country, Kinzer performed admirably behind the wheel of his No. 18 GRT machine. After narrowly missing the A-Main on three different occasions and waiting through a pair of rain-outs, Kinzer finally broke through during the $10,000-to-win finale at the Daytona Beach venue Saturday evening.
Kinzer timed in a disappointing fifty-fifth fastest in qualifying for the 360 OTC World of Outlaws Late Model Series show on Saturday night, but rallied his machine to a sixth-place finish in the heat race and a second place effort in the B-Main. His runner-up performance to Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Billy Moyer in the consolation event earned him the right to compete in the 50-lap feature race. After rolling off 22nd on the starting grid for the A-Main, Kinzer completed 49 green flag laps and was credited with a 24th place finish in the final rundown.
