1985 – Swindell Stars at Black Hills


Sammy Swindell

Rapid City, S.D. (July 5, 1985) – Sammy Swindell of Bartlett, Tenn., collected $3,875 in prize money as he led the entire 30-lap World of Outlaws sprint car feature Friday night at Black Hills Speedway.

Swindell jumped in front of polesitter Steve Kinser from the outside front row and was never bested as he took his seventh win of the season and his 1102nd career series victory.

For his part, Kinser kept the race from being a textbook runaway, but he posed no serious threat as Swindell kept lapped traffic between himself and Kinser.

The race was relatively trouble-free with only two yellow flags being waved in the 15-mile event. Terry Gray bent hiss chassis in a collision with Mark Kinser in the early stages, and Robby Unser prompted the final yellow when he hit the second turn wall on lap 16.

Results –

1. Sammy Swindell
2. Steve Kinser
3. Bobby Davis Jr.
4. Brad Doty
5. Jeff Swindell
6. Ron Shuman
7. Danny Smith
8. Tommy Estes Jr.
9. Tim Gee
10.Bobby Allen
