The article reports that World of Oultaws champion Donny Schatz collected a fourth straight Knoxville Nationals ahead of Joey Saldana and polesitter Stevie Smith. Schatz captured the rain-delayed 49th Nationals from the outside of the third row. Schatz patiently waited until the fuel load lightened on his J&J #15, then picked off Smith and Saldana five laps from the finish of the 40-lap race which had been extended by 10 laps.
