BLOOMINGTON, IN: Kraig Kinser driver of the SKR 11K sprint car has likely concluded his season with the World of Outlaws for 2015 due to a reoccurring back injury caused by a previous racing incident.
30-year-old Kinser was found to have two herniated disks in his lower back (L4/L5 and L5/S1), irritating his sciatic nerve. Kraig will undergo surgery this week with no specific date of his return to the 2015 World of Outlaws season.
The SKR team has not yet confirmed the plans for the remainder of the season however Mikey Kuemper (Kraig’s brother-in-law and crew chief) will be steering the 11K until further arrangements have been made.
