Brad Sweet is on a bit of a hot streak. After winning the Jackson Nationals last week, Sweet turned in a dominating performance leading all 25 laps and sailing to the win last night in the World of Outlaws stop in Knoxville. Sweet was fast all night taking off from his pole starting position and building a lead as much as four seconds. Lapped traffic did not even faze him as he cut through the slower cars with ease. David Gravel, who ended up second got within a few car lengths midway the race, but when rubber started laying down, Gravel faded. The race was for second place the rest of the way as Gravel and Donny Schatz battled with Schatz setting for third place. Sweet told KNIA/KRLS Sports it has been a good couple of week for the team. Kade Higday won his second 305 race in three weeks as he passed Chris Walraven on a restart. Tonight, the 360s join the party for night two of the World of Outlaws stop in Knoxville. Live Track Side will air at five and Race Nights Live at seven on AM 1320 and 95.3 KNIA.
