Kinzer Advances into 44th Annual
World 100; Encounters Battery Issues...
7, 2014) Brandon Kinzer and his #18 team rolled
into the famed Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on September
4-6 for the 44th edition of the 'World 100.' Things kicked off
at the hallowed 1/2-mile high-banked speedplant on Thursday and
Friday with a pair of Twin 25 preliminary programs, each of which
boasted a $5,000 winner's check. On Thursday night, Brandon narrowly
missed out on advancing into his 25-lap feature after finishing
fifth in his heat race and fourth in his B-Main. At Eldora on
Friday evening, BK placed sixth in his heat race and ninth in
his B-Main, which unfortunately forced him to watch his 25-lapper
from the infield.
When the stakes heightened on Saturday at the "Big E,"
all eyes were focused solely on the prestigious globe trophy and
the $47,000 top prize. Brandon advanced up to sixth in his stacked
heat race before nabbing the fifth and final transfer spot through
his B-Main into the 'World 100.' The Allen, Kentucky native was
then scheduled to start the 100-lap grind from the outside of
the fifteenth row, but ill-timed electrical issues caused him
to retire before the drop of the green flag. The disappointing
turn of events relegated Brandon to a thirty-second place performance
in the 44th Annual 'World 100.' Full results from the action-packed
weekend can be viewed online at www.eldoraspeedway.com.
