Jason Meyers wins Thursday Knoxville prelim
KNOXVILLE — Jason Meyers may have disappeared into semi retirement from sprint car racing in March of this year, but the two time World of Outlaws champion showed no signs of losing his mojo after winning the Thursday preliminary feature.
Meyers started the night by timing 13th, finishing third in his heat race. In the feature he chased down leader Mark Dobmeir and took the lead on lap eight and then held off a late charge from Tim Shaffer to get the win. Meyers accumulated enough points to start seventh in the championship Saturday night.
Setting quick time on the evening was Australian native and Knoxville regular Ian Madsen with a lap of 15.491. Ian then finished third in his heat race but in the feature spun in turn two and had to restart at the tail, but still managed a 16th finish to earn enough points to be locked into the top 16 starting positions for Saturday night.
