Just like last week at the Knoxville Raceway, three different drivers were able to get to victory lane as the 410 class held it Twin Features night on Saturday. The night actually got started an hour late due to the excessive heat in Knoxville in which the high was over 100 for the third time this week. The first 410 A-Main went to Justin Henderson who has had some bad luck in his first couple of visits to Knoxville this season, took off from his pole starting spot and led all 20 laps in a caution free race. The second 410 A-Main inverted the field and Ian Madsen worked his way from sixth starting spot and had the lead by midway and had to survive a battle with Dusty Zomer in the later laps to preserve the win. The 360s had just one feature, but R-J Johnson took his first left hand turn into victory lane as he led wire-to-wire. The unofficial 410 points standing have Davey Heskin, who finished fourth and third in his respective twin A-Mains with a 77 point lead over Terry McCarl. The points do not become official until the close of business at the Raceway today.
