Knowles visits East Bay Raceway Park for Winter Nationals
On Thursday, Jake Knowles followed the Crate Racin’ USA series to East Bay Raceway Park (Gibsonton, Fla.) for the three-day East Bay Winter Nationals.
Knowles began the weekend with a strong second-place qualifying lap before notching a runner-up finish in his heat. Starting 10th in the 30-lap main event, Jake pulled off after just completing two laps.
For another $2,500-to-win show on Friday, Jake was relegated to a B-Main after missing a transfer spot in his heat. Transferring to the feature through the second B-Feature, Knowles crawled his way from the back to finish 13th in the running order.
To wrap up the weekend on Saturday, Knowles grabbed another runner-up qualifying effort followed by a second-place finish in his heat race. For the $5,000-to-win main event, Jake ran inside the Top-15 for the first half of the feature before slamming the wall just shy of halfway. Knowles was scored 23rd in the final rundown.
