By T.J. Buffenbarger

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 14, 2021) – Jack Dover picked up the victory in the D-Main during the 60th NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey’s. Dover from Springfield, Nebraska held off a challenge from Dustin Selvage for the lead, driving away from the field after a stoppage for a red flag.

Dover took the lead on the opening lap as Selvage drove around Mark Dobmeier for second position. Selvage quickly closed in on Dover using the top of the racetrack to challenge him for the lead. Dover and Selvage ran two laps side by side before Dover opened a car length advantage.

The red flag appeared with five laps completed when Noah Gass and Chris Martin tangled between turns three and four with Martin tipped over. Martin’s car was turned back over and he was able to restart at the tail of the field.

Dover pulled away after the restart while Scotty Thiel began his move towards the front. Thiel passed Mark Dobmeier on the top side of turns one and two to take the third position. On lap 10 Thiel put a slide job on Selvage for second.

Dover had a comfortable advantage at the finish to win the D-Main. Thiel, Selvage, Dobmeier, Chad Kemenah, and Jesse Attard also transferred to the C-Main.
