Quotes Steve Kinser

"I was trying to take it easy and not burn up my right rear tire, and maybe was taking it a little too easy. We gambled on a little bit softer tire, but we figured everyone else pretty much tried that, too. You just had to be able to read the track tonight--it went from the bottom to the top and then back to the bottom when the rubber started coming in. Everyone's raced here a few times before, so there's no real advantage when you first pull in. "
