After several successful seasons in an Open Wheel Modified, the 21-year-old Robinson recently concluded his first full season in a Dirt Super Late Model in 2011, and it was a strong debut for the Bloomington, Indiana driver. Kent raced 62 times in 10 states with 1 win, 14-top-five, and 20-top-ten finishes. He made numerous crown jewels including the Dream, the Show Me 100 , the North/South 100, the World 100, and the Jackson 100. He also qualified for six Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series features and three World of Outlaws features. He also finished 6th at the WoO race at Bardstown Speedway (Kentucky) and racked up two top five finishes in Summer National events.
The 2011 season gave the young driver confidence, and with that confidence, Robinson looks to embark on his most daunting task to date. “No doubt it’s a big undertaking to hit the road fulltime with a national tour like the World of Outlaws, but it’s something that I feel that me and my time are ready to do as we make our next step in this sport. I know there’s a lot of talented drivers, who are chasing the WoO Rookie Title this year, and I’m honored to throw my name into the mix with those guys. As of this moment we are 95% sure that we will do the whole deal, but for right now we are focused on the Georgia and Florida Speedweek events to see how we stack up,” comments Robinson.
Robinson’s 2012 slate with the WoO tour will begin on February 10th-11th at Screven Motor Speedway (Sylvania, Georgia) in a $20,000-to-win event. Before heading south to Florida for events at Bubba Raceway Park (Ocala, FL) and Volusia Speedway Park (Deleon Springs, FL), Robinson plans to compete in the unsanctioned, $10,000-to-win event at Golden Isles Speedway (Brunswick, Florida) on February 12th.
