Knutsen Goes Across Country To IMCA STARS ROY Award

ATKINS, Iowa – Darrick Knutsen towed to 10 different tracks in six states and ended up cruising into the IMCA history book. Knutsen became the first STARS Mod Lite driver to earn IMCA national rookie of the year honors, starting the season racing in Arizona and then Florida before concentrating on weekly events in the Midwest, closer to his Atkins, Iowa, home. “My goal from the start of the season was to win rookie of the year and we started out pretty good,” stated Knutsen, at 50 the second oldest driver to earn that award, in any division. “I won for the first time in my fifth start and 10 features in all that year at Benton County.”. I was really trying for national rookie of the year,” said Knutsen.
