Redemption Time! Hannagan has sites set on Knoxville this Saturday!
October 5, 2006 (Knoxville, IA) Ask the driver of the Penthouse Magazine #1x about this years Knoxville Nationals and you are likely to not get a very positive answer. This year was the first time in a long time that Randy Hannagan was not part of the main event on Saturday night of the Knoxville Nationals. It was a rough time for the San Jose, CA native who prides himself in his Knoxville record. Hannagan who earlier in the year finished 6th at Knoxville likes his chances this Saturday night when the Greatest Show on Dirt returns to the historic ½ mile.
Back in June the Penthouse Magazine #1X timed in 11th and finished 6th in his heat showed why he is such a top performer at Knoxville. Hannagan would finish 9th in the Dash and start 9th in the "A". Because it was a preliminary feature that would later be determined a feature due to rain, it was only 25 laps in distance Hannagan would use the low line around the big sweeping ½ mile for a 6th place run.
"Yeah the Nationals was not what we had hoped for." Said Hannagan. "We had a great run in June here and had high expectations for the Nationals but it was just not meant to be. I' like to put this Penthouse Magazine car in victory lane at this place. We have had a pretty good year and want to get a win to build momentum for 2007. Steve and Chris have busted their butt each and every week to give me a great car. Penthouse has been a great addition to our team and looking for big things in 2007 and the new TV deal is huge as well. I like our chances this weekend but the locals that run here week in and week out are pretty tough as well."
