Shane Stewart passed Chad Kemenah with four laps to go and went on to take the victory in night one of the 50th Annual Goodyear Knoxville Nationals last night. Stewart, who last week won the 360 Nationals had to make a motor change after his time trial, but seemed to not miss a beat after. Craig Dollansky finished second with Kemenah, local driver Davey Heskin finished fourth with Jason Sides coming in fifth. Night two on Thursday will bring the same format as night one as a scheduled 55 cars will qualify.
