It’s All Clanton In Knoxville LM Go

KNOXVILLE, Iowa — Shane Clanton earned his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory of the season, leading wire-to-wire on night one of the Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway on Thursday night. Clanton took the lead at the start of the 25-lap event, first holding off Hudson O’Neal and then Earl Pearson Jr. to pick up his second career win at Knoxville and becoming the 18th different winner this year with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. Pearson came home in second, followed by Jonathan Davenport, Brandon Sheppard, and Kyle Strickler. The top finishers in Thursday night’s preliminary feature have never won the Saturday night finale that pays $50,000 to the victor for the second year in a row. “I could pass cars there on the bottom, so I knew my car was pretty good,” Clanton said. “The track was top dominate tonight, there is no doubt about it,” Pearson said.
