David Gravel won night one of the 53rd Annual F-V-P Knoxville Nationals as he took the lead from Greg Hodnett on lap three and held on for the remainder of the race. Gravel had to endure several restarts but kept everyone behind him. He told KNIA/KRLS Sports that winning at the Knoxville Nationals likely was the biggest win of his career. Gravel was thankful that the A-Main was not 26 laps as he was out of fuel as he crossed the finish line. Brad Sweet finished second with Tim Kaeding was a third with Greg Hodnett and Daryn Pittman in the top five. The points after night one has Shane Stewart and Justin Henderson tied for the top spot with 481 points. Tonight Craig Dollansky…Steve Kinser…Brian Brown…and Danny Lasoski among others are scheduled to race.
