2015 WoO Volusia #2: Schatz Rolls, King’s Still got It

Spread the love

As Donny Schatz rolled to yet another World of Outlaws victory (his first of 2015) the real story was Steve Kinser’s success through the night.

2015 WoO Volusia #2

The 60 year old, 20-time WoO champion, is in his first event since his farewell season and 2014.  On Saturday, the King showed that he’s still got it.  Kinser won his heat race and then beat out teammate Donny Schatz in the Dash for the Feature Pole.

Although Kinser didn’t lead a lap, he wrapped up a third place finish behind Schatz and Danny Lasoski.

Rounding out the top five was Greg Hodnett and Brad Sweet, which intensified the points race just that much more.
