David Gravel had one chance to make his move stick, and he executed a perfect dive to the bottom from third place on a lap ten restart and by the time they hit the third turn, he had not only passed Brad Sweet for second, but also race leader Donny Schatz and then set sail to win night two of the Brownells Big Guns Bash with the World of Outlaws at the Knoxville Raceway. Racing not only his fellow competitors but also storms bearing down on the raceway, Gravel set a blistering pace to win by over a second. Schatz was runner-up and Sweet claimed third. Knoxville weekly competitor Davey Heskin roared from the B-Main to fifth in the A. The 360s also raced and ran out of time before rain hit, however they were able to get in 11 of their 18 laps and Ryan Giles was declared the winner due to the race being past the halfway point.
