Chad Morgan Wins A Thriller In Lucas Oil ASCS eSeries Action At Knoxville Raceway

A virtual showdown ever bit as exciting as the real deal, Chad Morgan, who normally turns the wrenches for Brian Brown, picked up the win Friday night with the Lucas Oil ASCS eSeries presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network at Knoxville Raceway.
Battling hard with Clinton Boyles through the latter half of the A-Feature, a dry fuel cell ended the night for Boyles with a pair of laps to go.
“It’s fun to race on here with guys that race like what we see in the real world,” commented Morgan on the battle with Boyles.
“He had a good car and I was worried about maybe being too tight and a little off the pace early. I set up for late, but we mixed it up and he raced me clean. It got tough to hit the bottom but that’s normally where I’m pretty good and he was little better than me on the top but I was able to not screw it up and have a good race with him. It was a blast.”
Gridding the field sixth for the 35 lap, A-Feature, Morgan moved to the runner-up spot on Lap 9. Giving chase to Clinton Boyles, it didn’t take long for the pair to begin sizing each other up. Trading the point officially on Lap 14, it was short-lived with Boyles back out front on Lap 15.
Neck and neck at either end of the Knoxville Raceway, the two Missouri drivers traded lines several times with neither giving an inch. Finally retaking the lead on Lap 23, Morgan kept the No. 98 at bay as the pair slipped into slower traffic. Keeping pace with the No. 50, Boyles tried to size up a run in the closing laps, but fuel would run out for Boyles coming to the white flag, allowing Morgan to sail to victory.
Kameron Key ended up second with California’s Justyn Cox rallying from 17th to complete the podium. Austin O’Neal from 24th made it to fourth with Waco’s Chase Randall also making a big drive through the field from 19th to fifth. Kevin Fry in sixth was trailed by Knoxville native, Ryan Leavitt. Eighth went to Anton Hernandez with Clinton Boyles ending up ninth. Seth Bergman completed the top ten.
A special thanks go out to Lucas Oil Products and Great Southern Bank for their support of the Knoxville Raceway and for helping bring the Lucas Oil ASCS eSeries to the masses.
