the Knight Before the Kings Royal

Brad Sweet Wins over Donny Schatz, Brad Sweet, Ian Madsen, and Brian Brown.

B-Main: Joey Saldana makes his way into the A-Main after recently losing his ride in the No. 17. Rico Abreu, Cole Duncan, Ryan Smith, Gary Taylor, and Sheldon Haudenschild round out the top six and transfer as well.

The B-Main is coming up. Six drivers will transfer into the A-Main for a chance to win the Knight Before the Kings Royal.

Dash No. 2 lines up the outside row: Brad Sweet grabs the outside pole with Tim Shaffer and Donny Schatz lined up behind him.

Dash No. 1 sets the lineup for the inside line of the A-Main. Brian Brown wins and will start from the pole, Chrisopher Bell second and Ian Madsen third. Chad Kemenah does not make it out as he changes and engine and will be credited with sixth.

C-Main Rookie Brent Marks and Brandon Wimmer advance to the Last Chance Showdown. To get the spot, Wimmer slid past Shawn Dancer on the final lap.
D-Main: Chris Andrews and Craig Mintz advance from the D-Main and will tag the C-Main - Everyone else, goes home.

With 54 cars signed in tonight, there will be a D-Main, which is next up on the schedule.

Heat 6: Tim Shaffer wins and is still looking for his revenge after losing Attica at the end of the race. Logan Schuchart and Dale Blaney grab the other two transfer spots.
Heat 5: Kerry Madsen takes the lead from David Gravel early, who then falls one more spot to Shane Stewart; those three advance.
Heat 4: Donny Schatz makes it look easy to win Heat 4. Brad Sweet and the Wild Child Jac Haudenschild had a heck of a race for 2nd/3rd and the final transfer.
Heat 3: Ian Madsen wins handily over Christopher Bell and Lee Jacobs, who also advance to the feature.
Heat 2: Kraig Kinser, Chad Kemenah, and Daryn Pittman advance. Joey Saldana in his return to the Outlaws missed by one spot.
Heat 1: Jason Johnson - the Ragin Cajun - won his heat with Brian Brown and James McFadden also addvancingn

Time Trials for Group B end with Donny Schatz over David Gravel, Tim Shaffer, Brad Sweet, and Kerry Madsen.

Apparently his problems were not all that bad: He apparently lost power in hot laps, but Donny Schatz posts a lap of 13.057 seconds in Time Trials Group B

Hot Laps are under way and about midway through Tim Shaffer has the lead at 13.294
