|Written by Brenda Johnson Brandt|
Steve Kinser, 20-time World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series champion, highlighted the Thursday, July 3, activity at Phillips County Raceway.
From signing photos and greeting fans at a meet and greet dinner sponsored by S&W Auto Supply/NAPA, to dropping the green flag on the first race of the night, to posing with the evening’s winners and signing autographs at the track, racing legend Kinser added much to the pre-July 4 holiday kickoff.

Stopping in Holyoke as part of his Farewell to the King tour, Kinser moves through his final racing season.
While he didn’t actually race at Phillips County Raceway, the action was packed with late models, sprint cars, hobbies, stock cars, modifieds and sports mods.
A second evening of racing was scheduled Friday, July 4. While hot laps were completed, the rainfall that started at the time heat races would have begun caused the races to be canceled for the evening.

Fans won’t have long to wait for another evening at the race track as Phillips County Raceway will be live with racing this Saturday, July 12. Heat races start at 7 p.m.
BST late models and lightning sprints will once again join the four IMCA division cars.
