Upsets are known to happen at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway outside of Indianapolis, Indiana. It’s The Big Go and everyone wants to win it no matter if you’re the No. 16 qualified driver in your class or the No. 1 qualifier.
In the fourth pairing of the eight Top Foul pairings, Road Rage driver Kebin Kinsley shocked the No. 1 qualifier Clay Millican. Kinsley, the No. 16 qualifier, went 3.813 at 318.02 to get the win light over Millican’s 3.756 at 323.97 mph.
“I was just trying to be in the zone,” Kinsley said. “I got down and saw the light come on. I thought is that really true? I never saw Clay until the very end when he went past me after the finish line.
“It’s hard to out run a great gentleman. I’ve looked up to this man, but I’m really happy for my team. They’ve worked really hard and we had some issues this weekend. We rallied together and put our pieces together.”
This is Kinsley’s first round win at the historic track. It’s not the first-time that he has won a round, though, as he last won a round at the NHRA Springnationals at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas in 2016.
Kinsley, whose team is based in Dallas, Texas, also mentioned that some of his crew guys could not get to the event because of Hurricane Harvey that affected the Houston area.
