ANDERSON, Ind. – Once Dave McKnight took the lead in the Must See Racing SuperModified Series event, the outcome of the race was decided at Anderson Speedway on Monday.
McKnight used a classic high, low move coming off the fourth corner on lap 22 to pass early leader Jim Paller. From there he pulled away from Paller and the rest of the field.
Over the final 28 laps McKnight almost lapped the entire field, taking the checkered flag on the bumper of third place finisher Jimmy McCune with Paller slightly further ahead.
Paller took the lead from the pole position chased by Kyle Vanderpool, but the driver clearly on the move was McKnight, who was running fifth after the first lap.
He used the outside line to pass McCune on lap four down the back straight and six laps later passed Brian Gringras with a power move on the outside entering turn three.
McCune passed Vanderpool for third on lap 18 and pressed Paller for second the remainder of the distance but was unable to complete the pass. Sondi Eden moved into fourth by slipping outside of Vanderpool on lap 35.
McKnight, who won at Winchester Speedway on Sunday, made it two wins in a row to open the season.
At the checkers McKnight finished 12.5-seconds ahead of Paller with McClure, Eden and Vanderpool rounding out the top five.
“We had a great race car,” McKnight said.
He said the crew hit on the right set-up for Anderson Speedway.
Johnny Hargraves won the companion International Outlaw Figure-8 Series event.
