Thomas Kennedy became the first Canadian to win a 360 A-Main in the history of the Knoxville Raceway when he took the checkered flag in night one of the 28th Annual 360 Nationals presented by Great Western Bank. Kennedy led all 20 laps but the last five circuits he was pressured by both Mason Daniel and Sammy Swindell. Daniel ended up third after getting passed by Swindell with three laps to go, then he set his sights on Kennedy. Rounding turn four they touched wheels but Kennedy was able to hold on for the win. Kennedy told KNIA/KRLS Sports he was not going to let Swindell by him. Brian Brown leads the points after night one with a total 484 with Greg Hodnett in second, third is Kennedy, fourth Jamie Ball, and fifth is Daniel. The second half of the field will qualify tonight and the top 20 in points are locked into the Saturday championship A-Main.
