  • June 13 - November 1, 2014.  The  “Salute to Champion Steve Kinser” special exhibition consists of at least six cars that the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame inductee drove during his illustrious career. The special exhibition coincides with the King’s final full season on the World of Outlaws (WoO) STP Sprint Car Series in 2014. 

    The display, featuring the race cars and other Steve Kinser-related art and artifacts, will only be able to be seen together at one place this year, and that is at the ‘Sprint Car Capital of the World.’ 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.

    Those seeking additional information can visit the museum’s web site at www.sprintcarhof.com.
