In a career spanning more than 30 years, Kinser amassed 577 World of Outlaws feature victories in addition to his 20 series championships. He also expanded his racing efforts into other forms of motorsports, winning an International Race of Champions event at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway in 1994. He also made five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts and competed in the Indianapolis 500 in 1997, finishing 14th.

When announcer John Stanley introduced the 62-year-old Kinser to the crowd during a brief ceremony to mark his last appearance at Lebanon Valley, Kinser surprised many when he corrected Stanley, saying it was not only his last race at the Valley, but his last race.

If you never had the opportunity to see him race or are unaware of his overall statistics, I don't believe there will ever be a driver in any form of motorsport that was as truly dominant as Steve Kinser during his prime. Even in the twilight of his career, he was pretty damn good.
