KNOXVILLE, Ia (September 15) ā€“ Ryan Humphrey of Rose Hill took the annual Fall Enduro at Knoxville Raceway Saturday night. In a race that went the full two hours, he was able to rack up 184 laps on the big half-mile oval. The win paid Humphrey $1,000 for his efforts.
Seven red flag periods were encountered along the way for various reasons such as debris on the track as well for removal of stalled cars which were in a dangerous positions. Near the 125 lap segment a red was thrown in order to stop the race for a re-watering of the track in order to slow the cars.
Finishing second was Pleasantville resident Tyler Sutter who was just two laps behind the winning car. Doug Weiss of Dallas Center finished third. Strangely, a tie came about for fourth as Terry Darnell of Otley and Zach Vernon of Knoxville came across the line side by side in a photo finish.
