Mark Kinser Takes Knoxville With Experimental Maxim

Mark Kinser returned to Knoxville Raceway in a big way Saturday, winning the World of Outlaws 25-lap A Main with an experimental MAXIM Race Chassis.

Kinser drove to the $10,000 victory aboard his father Karl's mount, which was designed with the help of MAXIM Race Chassis owner Chuck Merrill and the elder Kinser.

"I have to thank Chuck Merrill of Maxim Chassis," said Mark from victory lane. "We have an experimental car and it's the only one like it in the field. He and my dad put their heads together and came up with something that really worked here tonight."

The three-time Knoxville Nationals champion led all 25 laps enroute to the 152nd victory of his World of Outlaws career. The win was Mark's 13th of his career at Knoxville Raceway.

Todd Kane and Mark Smith have both won with MAXIM Race Chassis on back to back weekends at their Saturday night tracks. Kane won for the second weekend in a row at KC Raceway in Ohio, while Smith scored again at Port Royal aboard the ZEMCO MAXIM.

Travis Rilat won aboard the Threatt MAXIM in Friday night's O'Reilly ASCS National Tour at 67 Texarkana Speedway before winning the ASCS Sooner feature at Lawton Saturday night.

Scotty Neitzel was a winner with his MAXIM in IRA competition at Dodge County Fairgrounds, while Sprints On Dirt defending champion Dustin Daggett started the 2004 season in victory lane with his MAXIM recently.

A pair of Memphis racers relied on MAXIM Race Chassis to get to victory lane. Paul Sides picked up his first sprint car win of the year at Memphis Motorsports Park, while Terry Gray picked up his second United Sprint Car Series win of the season Saturday night at Motor Mile Speedway.

California racers getting wins with MAXIM include Kevin Pylant with the Golden State Challenge at Calistoga, along with David Goodwill (NCMA-Fernley, Nevada) and Darrell Hanestad (Antioch).
