8.28.10 Knoxville Raceway Results

By Bob Wilson

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 28)Dusty Zomer (410s) and Jon Agan (360s) managed to avoid disastrous multi-car crashes as each claimed feature event wins at Knoxville Raceway Saturday night.

For Zomer, starting on the pole of the 20-lap feature was more than a blessing as an opening lap 7-car wreck shook the tall fences in turn one. Eliminated from the race were the cars of points leader Brian Brown, Rager Phillips, Seth Brahmer and Joey Moughan. Three cars were able to restart.

Once the race resumed, Zomer took charge and pulled away from the field. Behind him, young Robby Wolfgang held down the runner-up spot with Don Droud Jr. giving way the third position to Ian Madsen. By lap five Zomer had raced away to a huge lead over the pack. At the half-way point, Zomer had padded his margin even further as he raced through lap traffic. Behind him Wolfgang was in a classic battle with Madsen while Johnny Herrera had moved to fourth.

By lap 15, Herrera had made a pass of Wolfgang after the latter had become trapped behind a car in traffic. All of the complexion of the race was about to change as Zomer, with an unfathomable half-lap lead, saw the red flag showing for a 3-car skirmish at the back pit gate. This wreck involved Mike Moore who had stuck the fence while trying to avoid a slowing Lynton Jeffrey. Coming out of turn two, Austin Johnson could not steer clear and ended up slamming to wall too. Only Jeffrey restarted.

Madsen, whose sprinter had been smoking badly as he maintained fourth place, tried to make a go of it on the restart but came pitside before completing one lap.

In the five remaining circuits, Zomer, in his Ingle J&J, again took control and flashed across the stripe for his fourth career win here. Trailing were Herrera, Wolfgang (for a career best), Schneiderman and Austin McCarl (from 12th).

The 360 sprint feature was not one lap old before six cars had been eliminated. On the first try to start the race, Ryan Roberts, Tony Shilling, Dave Hall and Chad Humston rode the wrecker’s hook to the pits. The second try at a green saw Matt Moro and Joe Beaver become involved in a three-car wreck when Bryan Dobesh struck the turn 3-4 wall and bounce into the oncoming traffic.

The third attempt to start saw pole sitter RJ Johnson assume the point with Jon Agan in tow. For nearly a dozen laps that two-some battled for the top spot with Agan taking it in a near-blanket finish as they raced past the flag stand on lap six. Johnson stayed close but it was Agan who was now leading the way.

Disaster struck on lap 12 when Johnson’s sprinter did not turn while negotiating turn three and he slammed into the fence and took a series of tumbles. With four laps remaining, only twelve cars were left running.

Agan, in his self-owned sprinter, claimed his third career win at the end of the fifteen lapper. Season’s points leader Clint Garner finishing second, Jesse Giannatto was third, Rager Phillips took fourth and Dustin Selvage claimed fifth.
