What won the race: In an attrition-filled 40-lap feature at Volunteer Speedway, Cla Knight of North Augusta, S.C., took the lead from Philip Thompson after after an early restart and never gave it up. While Thompson retired on the eighth lap, Knight survived the remaining distance for a $2,000 Fastrak Racing Series payday.
Quotable: “Man, this win here tonight is what not only myself but our race team has been working so hard for,” Knight said in victory lane. “We’re racing against stiff competition on the Fastrak Racing Series Dirt Late Model tour and we’ve had several top five finishes and come awfully close to winning a race, but we just hadn’t been able to close the deal. This is so awesome to finally get our first win.”
Key notes: Eleven cars were running at the finish. … Mack McCarter scratched from the feature. … Vic Chandler suffered a flat tire before the feature went green. … Forrest Trent and Jensen Ford tangled for an early caution; David Smith, Brandon Umberger and Ron Parker were caught up in the accident and retired. … Under yellow, leader Benji Hicks retired with two laps complete. … Phillip Thompson slowed while leading, handing Knight the point. … Debris stopped action on laps 15 and 26. … Walker Arthur slowed and retired after 16 laps. … Teddy Tate spun for a lap-28 yellow. … Fastrak's touring series made its second and final visit to Bulls Gap. ... Friday's race kicked off a tripleheader holiday weekend, which also includes stops in Middlebourne, W.Va., and Rural Retreat, Va.
Winner's sponsors: Knight's Longhorn Chassis has a Koury Racing Engine and is sponsored by Allstar Graphix, Maxxis Kart Racing, Town & Country Packing, Commercial Industrial Supply, Augusta Aquatics, Behrent's Performance Warehouse, Hoosier Tire South and Penske Racing Shocks.
