Steve Kinser is looking to put his Quaker State Maxim in the winner¿s circle again at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and clinch another Pennzoil World of Outlaws championship during the 2002 series finals at LVMS¿ half-mile clay oval on Nov. 8 and 9.

"I don¿t know if winning in Las Vegas in the spring gives us an advantage, but we are looking forward to getting there and racing," Kinser said.

Kinser, who has earned the title "The King of the Outlaws," has driven his No. 11 Quaker State Maxim into the top 10 56 times, which includes 43 top-five finishes. Kinser also has won 18 "A" features, and is currently leading the Pennzoil World of Outlaw Championship by 292 points over Danny Lasoski.

"We¿ve been running good, so we have as good a chance as anybody," Kinser said. "There are two times in the season when everybody gets along really good and that¿s the beginning and the end. We race in Las Vegas both times. It¿s always been a good time out there."

The World of Outlaws rolls into Las Vegas for racing action on Friday, Nov. 8, and Saturday, Nov. 9. Spectator gates will open each night at 6 p.m., with qualifying at 7 p.m., heat races at 8 p.m., and main events at 9:10 p.m.
