Knoxville, Iowa – Knoxville Nationals winner Kyle Larson and four drivers won the 360 Knoxville Nationals Friday in the 32nd 360 Knoxville Nationals night qualifier presented by Great Southern Bank at Knoxville Raceway.
Larson is set to drive the familiar Paul Silva number 57 hoping to earn up to $30,000 from a bag that pays $15,000 to win, plus $500 for every lap he drives.
Larson earned $176,000 when he won the 60th place last year of the NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals. He also won the NASCAR Cup Series Championship last season.
Larson’s challenge for the Best Awards Friday night will be former 360 Nationals winner Clint Garner, Wayne Johnson, Brian Brown and Terry McCarl, who won multiple 360 features on the half-mile course this year and has conquered the 360 Nationals five times, most recently in 2018.
Fifteen-year-old Ryan Thames, the recurring winner of this season’s winged and dwarf racing competition, will be among the main contenders on Friday night, along with USA dwarf champion Buddy Kovoid and All-Star car racing champion Tyler. Courtney.
Contestants include USA sprint champion Brady Bacon, former World of Outlaws champion Darren Bateman, Linton Jeffrey, Davy Heskin, Tim Crowley, Justin Sanders, Dylan Westbrook, Blake Hahn and Ian Madsen.
