KNOXVILLE  — BDS Motorsports of Newton won the 2014 Owners Championship for the 360 sprint car class at Knoxville Raceway. Justin Henderson drove for BDS Motorsports in the 360 and the 410 class throughout the season at Knoxville.

BDS Motorsports is owned by Bryan Sundby and his father, David Sundby. Henderson, who is from Tea, S.D., finished third in the drivers’ standings for the 410 class and BDS Motorsports was third in that class at the finish of the 2014 season Saturday.

In the end, the point leaders in each division held off the rest of the field, but it wasn’t easy.

Ian Madsen drove to a strong fourth-place finish in the 410 A main won by Mark Dobmeier to take that championship. Joe Beaver won the 360 driver title with a sixth-place finish in a race won by Matt Moro. 

J Kinder needed a motor borrowed from the L&J Automotive No. 5J team to charge from 19th to fifth to claim the 305 championship. Dustin Clark won that feature.

In the 410 25-lap feature, Dobmeier pushed to the lead following a restart after 19 laps with Terry McCarl in pursuit. Madsen was passed by Dusty Zomer for third, but held onto fourth with a left wing side panel collapse.  He was followed by Craig Dollansky. Henderson, Brian Brown, Brooke Tatnell, Davey Heskin and Lynton Jeffrey rounded out the top 10.

Henderson set quick time on the night, and Danny Lasoski,Tasker Phillips and Maeschen won heats. Cole Wood flipped in his heat race, but was unhurt.

“It was a great racetrack,” said Dobmeier, who celebrated his 13th win in the Knoxville Victory Lane. “There was a bottom, a top, and you could cut through the middle, too.  My hat’s off to the track prep guys.  I was following Brian there in lapped traffic, and it’s too bad the red came out, because I think I was just getting in position and he was behind some cars. It was unfortunate he got into the wreck, but I will take the win any way I can get it.”

“It’s just unbelievable,” said Madsen of his championship shared with the Bret Nehring No. 18 team. “I’m just speechless right now. I haven’t taken a breath all night. I have to thank Bret Nehring, Matt Barbara, the whole crew and our partners.”

Before a lap could be completed in the 20-lap 360 feature, Russ Hall and Alan Ambers contacted, sending the latter upside down.  Hall also suffered too much damage to continue. Moro shot out to the lead from outside of row one and held off all challengers for the victory.

Tasker Phillips claimed second followed by Carson McCarl, Billy Alley and Van Haaften.  Joe Beaver came home sixth and won his first 360 title. Dylan Peterson finished seventh followed by Tony Shilling, Jon Agan and Jarrod Schneiderman.

Henderson also set quick time in the 360 class, clinching the owner title for the BDSMotorsports No. 1 team. Shilling, Cody Ledger and Agan won heat races.

“I didn’t want to leave any doubt on who the champion was this year,” said Beaver of his championship. “I knew enough cars dropped out that we had a good shot at it, so I went for it. The car was super tight.  We battled it the whole way. This feels great. We were consistent. Once we got the car figured out to go with the motor (Moyle supplied by Don Long).  Once we got our qualifying down, we were able to move up in the points.”

Dustin Clark led lap one from his pole position, but it wasKevin Hetrick who took command of the 15-lap 305 feature early on.  When Terri O’Connell slowed with three lapsin the books, Hetrick led Clark, Mitchell Alexander, Mike Mayberry and SteveBreazeale.

J Kinder’s point lead over Steve Breazeale was tenuous heading in, but he put on a charge in his borrowed motor, and was already 12th (from 19th) by the third lap. After another caution for debris a lap later, the rest of the event went non-stop.

Dustin Clark held off Stacey Alexander on the last lap to grab his first ever Knoxville victory. Hetrick was third, followed by Mitchell Alexander and Kinder, who grabbed fifth on Lap 13.  Breazeale, Mike Mayberry, Jeff Wilke, McKenna Haase and Mike Philben rounded out the top 10.  

Kinder posted quick time before losing his motor.  Philben, Haase and Stacey Alexander were heat race winners.

“I have to thank the Ball crew,” said Kinder of the L&J Automotive No. 5J team, which loaned him a motor. “I have to thank all the crews helping me.  This motor ran great.  We have to figure out what we’re going to do. This feels great. I can’t thank everyone enough. I’m in shock right now.”
