NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. – Cla Knight is set to kick off his second season of super late model competition and he’ll be doing so with a few changes.
While the look of his familiar Augusta Aquatics No. 42 E-Z-GO Golf Carts/ M&W Transport/Maxxis Kart Racing super late model will be similar to last season, Knight will be aboard a new chassis.
“Over the past few years the folks at Longhorn Chassis have been really good to us, but for 2019 we’ve made the decision to switch to Capital Race Cars,” Knight commented. “After meeting with Marshall Green, with Capital Race Cars, we really like the direction their program is heading and are very impressed with their entire operation. In addition, Chris Madden is a great friend and mentor of ours and with him making the move to Marshall Green and Capital Race Cars for this season, it further reinforced our decision to make the switch.”
After enjoying success in the crate late model ranks over the past few years, Knight spent much of the 2018 season learning the ropes of the super late model division.
“I’ll be honest that it was a bigger adjustment than I expected it to be,” Knight said in regards to the super late model division. “We learned a lot throughout the year, and we also resolved some problems late in the season that had been hampering us. I’m excited for this year.”
As Knight prepares for his 2019 endeavors, thanked all of his marketing partners that make his program possible.
“This isn’t a cheap sport, and we’ve got some fantastic supporters behind us. From the bottom of my heart I thank everyone who sponsors resources to our program,” Knight said. “I especially want to thank Carl Sherwood and Wes Sherwood with M&W Transport, Mike Parkhurst with E-Z-GO, and Todd and Patti Owens with Maxxis Kart Racing. These folks go above and beyond to support our team. I also want to welcome Jeff Robinson, with Buffalo Bar & Grill out of Greenwood, SC, as a new sponsor for our 2019 season.”
