The upcoming World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series season has lots to look forward to and ranking right near the top of that list is the fact it will be the final full-time campaign for 20-time Outlaw champion & National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Steve Kinser.

The “Salute to the King” tour is something every Sprint Car fan is excited about and to commemorate it during the series visit to Stockton in March, track promoters Tony & Carol Noceti are offering a once in a lifetime opportunity for five select couples to have “Dinner with the King” at the El Rancho Inn – Steak & Lobster House on Thursday night March 20 at 7pm.

The drawing will work simply as follows. Five names will be randomly drawn out of the pre-ticket sales for the Stockton Dirt Track March 21 & 22 weekend. Those lucky winners will be invited to the special dinner on March 20 at 7pm with Steve Kinser at the El Rancho Inn – Steak & Lobster House, which is located off Charter Way/MLK Blvd and Mariposa Road in Stockton, California.

“We’re really excited to put this dinner together with Steve Kinser and include five couples that have pre-bought their tickets for the two-night show in March at the Stockton Dirt Track,” said Tony Noceti. “Steve is a living legend & the El Rancho Inn has some of the best steak & lobster you’ll ever have, so fans will definitely want to purchase their tickets early to become eligible for the dinner.”

The deadline to pre-buy your March 21 & 22 weekend tickets and still be eligible for the special “Dinner with the King” drawing is Thursday March 13.

“This is a really neat promotion that Tony & Carol Noceti have offered up to fans that purchase their March tickets to Stockton tickets early,” commented George Hague with the Stockton Dirt Track. “It’s not every day that you get to have dinner with a National Sprint Car Hall of Famer & a guy that has meant as much to Sprint Car racing as Steve Kinser has. I can also attest that the El Rancho Inn serves up steak & lobster that is out of this world, so do yourself a favor and buy your tickets early to become eligible for the drawing.”

The five winning couples will also be part of a presentation to Kinser in the winner’s circle area during Saturday night’s World of Outlaws event.

Steve Kinser is considered to be the greatest Sprint Car driver of all-time and possesses the most World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series championships in the history of the tour, having claimed the title on 20 occasions. The Bloomington, Indiana driver is the all-time winnigest driver in World of Outlaws history with 576 career triumphs with the series.
