Drawing a stout field of 67 604 Late Models for the event co-sanctioned by the Crate Racin’ USA Winter Shootout Series and the DIRTcar Pro Late Models, Knowles qualifying effort in his group pinned him on the sixth row for the preliminary feature. With $1,500 on the line, Jake charged through the field seven spots in the 20-lapper to register a fourth-place finish.

For another $1,500-to-win preliminary feature on Friday, Jake secured his spot into the A-Main with the ninth-fastest lap in his group. Inching forward one spot in the 20-lap affair, Knowles recorded a fifth-place finish. He trailed Austin Yarbrough, Ross Bailes, and Kyle Bronson to the checkers with Chase Collins coming in fifth.

An unfavorable forecast for Saturday’s program forced officials to cancel the Sunshine Nationals finale.
