Jake Knowles Overcomes Adversity for Pair of Cochran Top 10’s
Georgia Racer Battles Through Ups And Downs In Durrence Layne Action

Rome, Georgia (03/11/19) – Jake Knowles had to overcome adversity and more than his fair share of challenges en route to a pair of Top-10 finishes over the weekend with the Durrence Layne Winter Shootout Series.

On Friday night he finished 10th in his Knowles Race Parts & Bodies #66 Josh Roberts Trucking/ Coosa Heating & Cooling/ Longhorn Chassis Late Model, while Saturday night found him crossing the finish line in fourth.

“It was just one of those weekends for us,” Knowles said. “We really had a good car both nights. On Friday night I was running a solid second place and got spun with three laps to go. I was able to bounce back to 10th, but it was pretty disheartening. Then on Saturday night, we qualified a little further back then I would’ve liked and had to start 10th. We got as high as the third spot before finishing fourth. It was a challenging weekend, but we never gave up.”

Jake Knowles followed the Durrence Layne Winter Shootout Series to Cochran Motor Speedway (Cochran, Georgia) on Friday night for the opening round of the two-day Cochran Clash. In a field of 21 cars, Jake registered the third-fastest time in qualifying, which positioned him third on the starting grid for the opening night feature. With $2,000 on the line, Knowles got spun around on lap-28, while running in the second spot. He rejoined the tail of the field before rebounding to a 10th-place finish.

The following night, Knowles secured his spot into the $3,000-to-win finale with the 10th-fastest time in qualifying. Breaking into the Top-5, Jake passed six cars in the 50-lapper to finish fourth behind Tyler Sanders, Ashton Winger, and Jimmy Elliott with Drew Kennedy rounding out the Top 5.

Jake finished second in the final Durrence Layne Winter Shootout Series point standings. For full results from the event, please visit www.DurrenceLayneRacing.com .
