New Richmond, WI.  June 6, 2014.  The June 29th World of Outlaw Sprint Car race at Cedar Lake Speedway this summer marks the 25th consecutive year that the premier Outlaw race series has been entertaining race fans in the twin cities market at the legendary track.  In addition to celebrating the silver anniversary of the event this year, fans will also experience the last race in the area for Steve Kinser as he has announced that he is retiring this year. 

Steve Kinser, also known as “The King” in racing circles, has been an icon in short-track racing for decades and has been the face of the World of Outlaws since he won his first three titles starting in 1978.  Steve currently drives for three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart and at age 60 is amazing to see him compete against others 1/3 his age.  The Bloomington, Indiana native has earned 576 career WoO A-Feature triumphs and has filled the record book with accomplishments that likely will not be matched.  He has won 5 events at Cedar Lake Speedway and hopes to close his career with a victory here on June 29th.
