Not only did it mark his first-career Ultimate Super Late Series victory, but it also marked his first-career Super Late Model win aboard his E-Z-GO No. 42 Augusta Aquatics / M&W Transport / Barry Wright Race Car / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model. “We’re just a small team, you know?” Knight said in victory lane.

“We’re trying to make it and I’m trying to do the best I can and we’re just real excited to get one. We enjoyed success in the Crate Late Model division, but it’s been a major adjustment with the Super Late Model. To get this first win in the Super… it just allows me to finally feel some accomplishment, and hopefully this is the first of many wins to come.

“While we’ve faced our fair share of adversity in the Super Late Model division, my family, my team and my sponsors have never doubted me, and that has meant the world to me. This win is dedicated to them.”

Clawing forward one spot in the 40-lap affair, Knight recorded a seventh-place outing.

The following night at Lancaster Speedway (Lancaster, S.C.), Knight locked into the second-starting position for the A-Main via his qualifying effort. Inheriting the lead from early pacesetter Zack Mitchell on lap 20, Cla led the remainder of the 40-lapper to record his first career Super Late Model victory over Ben Watkins, Jeff Smith, Ross Bailes, and Kenny Collins. He pocketed $4,000 for his maiden trip to Victory Lane in the Super Late Model division.
