“This is truly something special to win this championship,” Robinson proclaimed. “To win a Super Late Model championship at a place that is so prestigious and has so much history means a lot to our team. At the beginning of the year, we circled this as a goal, and to see it come to fruition is very fulfilling. I just want to thank my family, my team, my sponsors, and all of my fans for their awesome support."

K-Rob traveled to the famed Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio) on Saturday to take part in the annual Allstar Performance DIRTcar Fall Nationals, which was sanctioned by the Sunoco Race Fuels American Late Model Series (ALMS). While the event was slated to only be a one-day affair, Mother Nature had other ideas.

Kent started the event by registering the fastest time of the 23 entries in qualifying on Saturday evening, and then backed it up with a heat-race win from the fourth-starting position. His preliminary performance positioned Robinson third on the starting grid for the 40-lap $5,000-to-win finale.

Early in the feature he worked his way up to the second position, but on lap 16 rain would begin to drench the ½-mile oval, forcing the final 24 laps to be postponed until Sunday afternoon.

When the race resumed Robinson challenged Van Wormer for the lead near the race’s midway point before ultimately slipping back to a third-place finish behind Van Wormer and Bobby Pierce. Jon Henry and Jacob Hawkins completed the Top 5.
