Iconic Steve Kinser Racing/Arctic Cat Brands Join Forces For 2016 with Drivers Kraig & Steve Kinser
Kraig Kinser Wins First Round at Bubba Raceway
Arctic Cat is the title sponsor of the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series (ASCoC) for 2016. The All Star Circuit of Champions is one of the oldest traveling sprint car organizations and is a staple of grassroots, open-wheel racing.
Arctic Cat’s involvement in the series will play a significant role on and off the racetrack, increasing awareness of the Arctic Cat brand and ASCoC, owned by NASCAR premier series champion Tony Stewart. The newly named Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions made its 2016 debut at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida.
“All of us at Arctic Cat are thrilled to be the title sponsor of the All Star Circuit of Champions in 2016,” said Greg Williamson, chief marketing officer, Arctic Cat. “Tony Stewart has long been a member of the Arctic Cat family and the association on the grassroots level is a great fit for our brand. Expect to see many of our products on display at a large number of All Star events in 2016.”
The Wildcat will be showcased at numerous All Star events. Riders will participate in Wildcat exhibitions, racing head-to-head on the same racing surface as the All Star Circuit of Champions. Arctic Cat representatives will be in attendance regularly over the course of the season, displaying current and new models, as well as conducting ride-and-drive events for race fans.
Arctic Cat has also partnered with Steve Kinser Racing (SKR) and driver Kraig Kinser for the entire 2016 ASCoC season. Kinser is piloting a special-schemed No. 11K Arctic Cat entry that showcases the brand’s dynamic side-by-side, the Wildcat®. At the ASCoC opener at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Fla., Kraig Kinser led all 30 laps placing the 11K Wildcat Sprint Car on the podium.
