Drama Unfolds at Nationals

August 13, 2004 Knoxville, IA Drama unfolded during tonight's 44th annual Midwest Ford Dealers Knoxville Nationals when the Tony Stewart Motorsports #20 of Danny Lasoski went to his pit area instead of weighing immediately after his fifth place finish in the A-main scramble. Lasoski did weigh after he was told he needed to weigh and met the weight requirement, however he was disqualified for not weighing immediately after the race. He ended up with a tenth place finish and will start fourth in tomorrow night's A-main.

Knoxville regular, Travis Cram motored his #92 VMAC to a preliminary A-main victory. Cram held off veteran Sammy Swindell, as well as the Brownsburg Bullet, Joey Saldana to capture the victory.

Hometown favorite and long time Knoxville supporter, #24 Terry McCarl has captured the pole position for Saturday night's A-main event. This will be McCarl's first-ever pole position start, and his best start ever during the Nationals. "This is my best start here at the Nationals," stated McCarl. My team has been working hard all year, and I want to thank my sponsors for all of their support, and we will see what happens tomorrow."

The winner of tonight's A-main scramble the #15 Parker Stores/J&J driver, Donny Schatz will start in the sixth position in tomorrow night's A-main event. "It is nice to stand in victory lane. My car was not as good as it could have been, but we have 24-hours to work out the bugs and get ready for tomorrow," mentioned Schatz.

#21 Pepsi/Hop & Sack/J&J Daryn Pittman put a halt on his bad luck this season by capturing the prestigious 20 lap Kele World Challenge. "We made good changes to the car. It has been a tough year, but hopefully we turned our luck around tonight. I want to thank my car owners and sponsors for all of their continued support," affirmed Pittman.

Steve Kinser after continuous hic-cups through out the week, drove the Quaker State #11 to a C-main scramble victory, and will start tomorrow night's C-main. He will be in full pursuit to try and start tomorrow night's A-main.
