The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum has announced this year’s featured attraction will be the Salute to Champion Steve Kinser special exhibition.
The display, consisting of at least six cars that the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee drove during his illustrious career, will be in the non-profit museum from June 13 through Nov. 1. It follows similar exhibitions honoring Tony Stewart (2011), Jeff Gordon (2012) and Mario Andretti (2013).
The Salute to Champion Steve Kinser special exhibition will coincide with the King’s final full season on the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series. In fact, it will debut on the weekend of the WoO Mediacom Shootout on June 14 at the legendary half-mile Knoxville Raceway, at which the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum is located.
“This display, featuring the race cars and a lot of other Steve Kinser-related art and artifacts, will only be able to be seen together at one place this year and that is here at the Sprint Car Capital of the World,” said Bob Baker, museum executive director. “This will be a must-see attraction for the legion of fans of the 20-time World of Outlaws champion and 12-time Knoxville Nationals winner.”
