Sammy Swindell Gets Redemption With WoO at Knoxville!

by Bill Wright

KNOXVILLE RACEWAY, Knoxville, IA, June 11, 2011 – Sammy Swindell can’t take back his misfortune in the 50th Anniversary Knoxville Nationals in 2010. He did the next best thing, however, by taking the lead from Jason Sides at the halfway point of Saturday night’s 25-lap World of Outlaws Mediacom Shootout at Knoxville Raceway and leading the rest of the way to record his 46th career feature victory here. The win came aboard the Big Game Treestands #1 Parker powered Maxim. Dennis Moore Jr. won for the first time in several seasons in the companion 360 class.

The feature got off to a rough start with a pair of separate incidents. At the first drop of the green, Kevin Swindell, Cody Darrah and Kerry Madsen hit the berm in turn one and turned over. No one was injured, but all were done. The same happened on the next try, when Craig Dollansky and Steve Kinser found themselves upside down in the same corner.

The third try at green was a charm, as it went non-stop for 25 laps. Pole-sitter, Sides, grabbed the early advantage and pulled away with Jason Meyers and Brooke Tatnell chasing him. Lap eleven was huge for Sammy, who swept by Tatnell and Meyers in turns three and four to grab the runner-up spot.

Three laps later, he worked by Sides in traffic, and the race for second was on behind him. Sides and Meyers traded second on the nineteenth lap in some great race action, but none came close to threatening Sammy, who led the majority of last year’s Knoxville Nationals before losing a left rear tire.

"You get to stand up here when you lead the last lap," said Sammy. "Last year, we didn’t get to do that because we lost a tire. It’s great for Big Game Treestands, and everyone who is with us. We are learning a lot right now. This team is rock solid."

"When you are out front, you aren’t sure where to run," said Sides, who held on for second. "I was trying to save the tires a bit. Unfortunately, that didn’t work and we got beat by one of the best in the business."

Meyers completed the podium. "We had trouble chasing Jason early, and as the fuel load burned off, we had to get the wing back and the car got down on the left rear. We’ve been really close lately. We’re getting there, and my guys are working their tails off."

Donny Schatz passed Tatnell with two to go to snare fourth. Following Tatnell, fast qualifier, Brad Sweet, Terry McCarl, Chad Kemenah, Kraig Kinser and Joey Saldana rounded out the top ten. Tatnell, Sides, McCarl and Paul McMahan won the heats. Josh Schneiderman took the B main, while Sides claimed the dash.

A scary crash marred the third heat race when Darrah clipped Josh Higday, taking him out and sending him into a wicked series of flips. No one was injured in the night’s accidents.

Excitement also ruled the 360 feature on Saturday. Matt Moro led over Russ Hall in the early going. Dennis Moore Jr. was on the move from row three, and took third from Jamie Ball on lap four. Behind him, two-time and defending track champ, Clint Garner, moved into fourth two laps later.

At the halfway point, Moore Jr. put Doc Sloan’s Moyler powered #D12 into the second with a pass of Hall, and Garner followed him into third. The race appeared to be going green to checker, when Alan Zoutte got upside down in turn two to set a green, white, checker finish. Moro lead Moore Jr., Garner, Humston and Hall back to green flag racing, but another flip, this one from Tasker Phillips, would set up a white-checker finish.

Moro got a good restart, but Moore Jr. sized him up down the backstretch and used the bottom of turns three and four to grab his third career 360 win, and his sixth overall at Knoxville. "I messed up a bit on the first (green, white, checker) restart," said Moore Jr. "I was able to hit the bottom there in three and four, and I knew I had miles per hour on him. It’s been a long time. I think I have one win since my injury and that was in California. This is a good thing for the family and for my team. We’ve got a good car."

Moro was second, ahead of Garner, Humston and Hall. Jon Agan, Nate Van Haaften, Jamie Ball, hard-charger, Justyn Cox and David Hall rounded out the top ten. Humston posted quick time, while Moore Jr., Van Haaften and Russ Hall took heat wins. Casey Friedrichsen won the B.
