Chase Randall Scores First Ever Knoxville 410 Win

KNOXVILLE, Ia. — Chase Randall passed Aaron Reutzel early in the 20-lap 988 Lifeline 410 feature on Dennison Racing Tees and Jersey Freeze Night to earn his first ever main event win in the class Saturday at Knoxville Raceway. The Waco, Texas native earned $6,000 for his win aboard the TKS Motorsports #2KS. Reutzel won a battle with young Jack Anderson to claim his eleventh career win in the 360 class, and J Kinder won for the seventh time in his career and for the second week in a row in the Pro Sprints class.

The 410 feature got off to a rocky start when Scott Bogucki tried to sneak between Randall and the turn two wall on the first lap. Bogucki spun hard and got upside down in an incident that saw Dusty Zomer and Zach Hampton also flip. AJ Moeller was also involved as were Gage Pulkrabek, Josh Schneiderman and Sawyer Phillips. The latter three restarted.

The second try at green would take and the race would go the distance. Reutzel grabbed the early advantage after inheriting a starting spot outside row one, ahead of Randall, Austin McCarl, Kerry Madsen and Lynton Jeffrey.

On lap three, Randall threw a slider across turn two, wrestling the lead from Reutzel, and five laps later was already moving through lapped traffic. Randall, Reutzel, McCarl and Madsen distanced themselves from the rest of the pack in the middle stages.

Traffic got intense, and Reutzel pulled close on a couple of occasions. McCarl snuck by for second in turn two on lap 13, but Reutzel came back with a slider of his own in turn two to reclaim the position a lap later.

The battle between the two allowed Randall to pull away for his inaugural 410 win here ahead of Reutzel, McCarl, Madsen and Garet Williamson. Hard-charger Tasker Phillips, Jeffrey, Kelby Watt, Chris Martin and Matt Juhl rounded out the top ten. Reutzel set quick time over the 32-car field, while Watt, Zomer, Phillips and Hampton won heat races. Darin Naida won the B.

“It was huge,” said Randall of his first win. “It was very tricky judging my pace off of the lapped cars. I was driving as hard as I could, but when I got close to lapped traffic I feel like I slowed down. I was itching to go, but I was trying to be patient at the same time. I just had to take a few deep breaths. I know I felt great from the first lap. Troy (Renfro) and I have been working extremely hard to make this car the best it can be.”

Jack Anderson shot out from the pole position to begin the 18-lap 360 A main ahead of Kade Higday, Reutzel, Tyler Groenendyk and Terry McCarl. Reutzel was a rocket on the bottom of the track, and claimed second from Higday on lap two, while McCarl moved into fourth. McCarl also worked by Higday into the top three on lap four. Anderson entered lapped traffic on lap six and kept a good pace. Reutzel kept within striking distance through the middle stages. Randall also entered the top four at that point.

On lap 12, Anderson slid in the middle of turns one and two and Reutzel entered high and left turn two low to make his winning pass. He pulled away from there to the victory. Randall passed McCarl with there to go and Anderson with two to go to claim second ahead of Anderson, McCarl and Groenendyk. Jamie Ball, Higday, hard-charger Tasker Phillips, Kaleb Johnson and Ryan Giles completed the top ten. Randall set quick time over the 32-car field and won his heat. Timothy Smith, Tony Rost and Groenendyk also won heats. Phillips claimed the B.

“The car was really good,” said Reutzel in Victory Lane. “Wow! It gets sketchy out there sometimes when the leaders are going so much faster than those lapped cars. There were a couple scary moments there. I was glad we were able to hang on. (Anderson) was doing a hell of a job moving around. I actually think he might have had a better car than me. He could get out in the middle and still keep his momentum up. I just had to keep ducking when he dodged and dodging when he ducked. Wherever he went, I had to hurry up and pick another line. I just had to go up the hill and come back down; he just had one lapped car screw him up.”

J Kinder led the 15-lap Pro Sprints feature from the start, ahead of Rob Kubli, Matt Allen, Ryan Navratil and Jeff Wilke. Chase Young soon found himself in the top five as well. The only caution of the event came for a stalled Toby Mosher on lap eight. Navratil climbed from fifth to third on the restart, but Allen recaptured the spot (he would later be penalized two spots for jumping the same restart).

Kinder was never seriously challenged in his run to his second win in a row. Kubli held onto second, with Young, AJ Johnson and Allen scored in the top five. Navritil, Mike Mayberry, Josh Jones, Brandon Worthington and Wilke rounded out the top ten.

“This is the first time I’ve ever won back to back,” said the 2014 305 track champion in Victory Lane. “The car is rolling good. It’s going to be a good year, we’ll see how it plays out. I struggled a little bit with (the lapped car of Bob Hildreth) in turn one, and I looked at the board and saw there was a car right behind me. I thought I couldn’t do that. Being in clean air was definitely the place to be.”
