KCCS Night #14. 305's are finally back at Knoxville after their last 2 races have been rained out. In Mike's 305 time trials, he timed 8th quick with 17.939. This puts Mike on the pole of the 2nd 305 heat race. Mike gets a great start on the drop of the green flag and leads all 6 laps of his heat race and sets a new track record with a time of 1 minute 40.9 seconds. This earns Mike the front row outside of the 305 A Main. Mike, again, jumps to the lead on the start. 5 restarts and 12 laps later, Mike is still in the lead. The lap 12 restart, Mike is challenged by the 99 of Matthew Stelzer going into turn 2 but Mike closes the door and leads the next 3 laps earning him his 4th A Main victory at Knoxville Raceway. This would also make 3 wins in a row for Mike.
