Sammy Swindell has been trying every combination he could think of the last two weeks at the Knoxville Raceway in preparation for next week’s 54th Knoxville Nationals.He must have found it at least in his 360 last night as he took the lead from Mark Dobmeier on a restart and had to hold on to get night two of the 24th Arnold Motor Supply 360 Nationals. Swindell started fourth and after Dobmeier led the first eight laps Swindell blew by to take the lead. Brian Brown, who nearly pulled off a perfect night was third. Swindell said while taking care of his tires, he was able to see what Dobmeier did and learn. The race was stopped midway through for a red flag as Alan Ambers slid through turn one and was T-Boned by Jack Dover. Ambers was taken to Knoxville Hospital and Clinics and according to his crew was complaining of ankle pain but otherwise was O-K. Brown will start on the pole of tonight’s A-Main with Joe Beaver right beside him on the front row. You can hear all the action on AM 1320 and 95.3 KNIA and kniakrls.com with Live Track Side at five and Race Night’s Live at seven. The 305s will also be running a regular program.
