It was another exciting night of racing Saturday at the Knoxville Raceway as one race was dominated from start to finish by one driver, while the other was not decided until the final 100 feet. The 410 was the race with the dramatic finish as it looked like Davey Heskin would win his second in a row with ease…however after a yellow flag with three laps remaining, Heskin pulled into the pits with a broken rear end. That handed the lead to Ian Madsen who was at the time battling Brian Brown for second. With Heskin out, it turned into a race for the win with Brown taking it out of the fourth turn of the final lap. Meanwhile, Jon Agan who let last week’s 360 race slip away…redeemed himself with a runaway win leading all 18 laps of the A-Main. For the second time this season, Jason Johnson raced at the Knoxville Raceway and with the support of Roush-Yates under the hood, he was runner-up again.
