  • KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 9, 2017) – Kyle Larson led wire to wire on Brandt Professional Agriculture Night #1 of the 57th Annual 5-hour ENERGY Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s General Stores at the Knoxville Raceway. The Elk Grove, California native guided Paul Silva’s #57 flawlessly through traffic to claim his third career feature win and $12,000 at the “Sprint Car Capital of the World.” Donny Schatz emerged atop the all-important point standings earning 492. He was followed by Brad Sweet (489), Kerry Madsen (487), Greg Hodnett (472), Larson (469) and Shane Stewart (469).

    Larson grabbed the lap one lead from Austin McCarl, who had gotten the jump at the green. Greg Hodnett settled into second in the 25-lapper, ahead of Paul McMahan and Donny Schatz. Schatz used the low side of the track to gain fourth on lap two. Parker Price-Miller came to a stop when his nose wing came askew three laps in.

    Larson pulled away again, while Kerry Madsen moved into the top five. Schatz drove by Hodnett to take third on lap five, and Madsen followed him into fourth. The leaders entered lapped traffic on the tenth circuit, and McCarl, Schatz and Madsen battled for several laps in second, third and fourth. Schatz would clear the group on lap 14 and continue his pursuit of the leader. Hodnett would shoot under Madsen for fourth on lap 14, and slid by McCarl for third on lap 17.

    Larson would maintain his advantage to the checkers, followed by Schatz, Hodnett, Brad Sweet and McCarl. Madsen, Shane Stewart, Paul McMahan, Christopher Bell and Bill Balog completed the top ten. Madsen set quick time on the night at 14.886. Kevin Thomas Jr., Jac Haudenschild, Matt Moro, Schatz and Bill Balog were heat winners. Lucas Wolfe won the B main.

    “I definitely have to have the conversation with him, that’s for sure!” said Larson in Victory Lane as the crowd roared, in reference to his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series owner, Chip Ganassi, and his ability to make it back from practice in Michigan for Saturday’s championship in Knoxville. “I’ve never been this good in a sprint car in my career. To win a prelim night here with Paul Silva is amazing. Our car was really good the whole feature. We were a little loose on the bottom, and I felt we moved up at the right time. I’m super-happy to win! I’m nervous about the phone call. Hopefully, (Chip) is listening and knows how much I appreciate everything he allows me to do racing sprint cars. If we can race Saturday night, that will be a dream come true. To win here Saturday…I feel like we have a great shot. In the Cup stuff, those are the best group of guys to work with. I feel like we have a great shot (at a championship). I feel fast, and I’m having fun. It would be a lot of fun to get done practicing Saturday and know I’m racing here.”

    “We tried something there to see if we may be a little better,” said Schatz. “We may have been a little worse. You have to do that. We got ourselves in a good spot in the heat race and qualified o.k. You have to finish good and we did. Kyle was really good there. When the racetrack changed, he got up on it. We were just a little free, but my hat’s off to this race team. They do incredible things together. They work hard together. Racing is one of them games where we argue, enjoy it, and do everything together.”

    “I’ve been running the bottom pretty well, but it went away from me there,” said Hodnett. “I had to move back up to the top, and I think I held my own and didn’t lose a whole lot. We’re still trying to figure it out, but the guys are doing a great job on the car. We’ve got a great fan base here, and a great racetrack. There are two lanes here, and you can’t ask for anything better. I appreciate all the effort that Knoxville puts into this. We’re very fortunate to be able to come here.”
