Bemidji Speedway: Kintner leads Wissota Super Stocks


The current points leader at Bemidji Speedway in the Wissota Super Stock class is 23-year-old Tyler Kintner of Hibbing.

Kintner has been racing for 11 years and is currently racing the No. 22 Turbine Superstock at area tracks including Bemidji Speedway, Hibbing and Grand Rapids.

“We updated from a 1998 turbine to a 2007 turbine in late July,” said Kintner, “and we have been getting great help from the 24J crew.”

The 24J crew is Tyler Kintner’s uncle Jay who is now racing a Late Model. Other family members racing include cousins Bobby Kintner, Reed Scott and Derek and Steve Vesel.

Kintner makes his way to Bemidji Speedway each week with his fiancé Alisha Thompson and his son Braxton. With a smile he lists his son as his crew chief with Jared, Todd and Kevin as his crew.

“I race to have fun, it’s been a hobby of mine for years. I also race because of my family and I enjoy working on the cars and going fast,” admits Kintner.

Kintner isn’t a stranger to Victory Circle. In 2008 he won the Grand Rapids Raceway track championship. In 2006 he was named “Rookie of the Year” in Hibbing and Grand Rapids and picked up the “Hard Charger” award in Hibbing. In the very competitive Wissota Super Stock class Kintner has finished in the top 20 nationally twice, 16th in 2008 and 20th in 2007.

Kintner’s goals for the current season are to win more features and track championships and to have fun.

Kintner is sponsored by Hibbing Taxi, Ferdig Race Engines, Snickers Pizza, Olson’s Auto Body, Nick Signs, Orv’s Repair, and C and S Race Supplies.
