Jake Knowles Records Runner-Up Finish in the Governor’s Cup
Resumes Chevrolet Performance Series Action this Weekend
Rome, Georgia (08/14/18 ) – Jake Knowles overcame adversity early in the night to record a runner-up finish in his Knowles Race Parts & Bodies #66 Josh Roberts Trucking/ Longhorn Chassis Late Model in the inaugural Governor’s Cup on Saturday night at Talladega Short Track.
“We didn’t get to hot lap because we had an issue with the box, so we had to rush to replace it and the harness,” Knowles recounted. “We had a fast car though, and were able to pick off a few spots in the feature before the track locked down. Overall, it was a pretty good night for us, and we are looking forward to getting back to series action this Saturday at Cochran.”
On Saturday night Jake Knowles returned to Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Alabama) for the inaugural Governor's Cup. With a stout field of 45 Southern All Star Series (SAS) Super Late Model entries on hand, Jake timed in second fastest in his group before charging to a heat race victory.
Earning the fourth-starting position for the $10,000-to-win A-Main, Jake Knowles improved two spots in the 60-lap affair to finish in the runner-up position behind Michael Page with Jason Hiett, William Thomas, and Riley Hickman completing the Top-5 finishers.
