Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (Aug. 2, 2016) – White Lightning Motorsports driver Jamie Ball is excited to enter this weekend’s 26th annual Arnold Motor Supply 360 Knoxville Nationals at Knoxville Raceway.
“I could not be more ready,” he said. “First off our main goal is to put it in the show for the third consecutive year. I think a top 10 in the A Main on Saturday is the second goal.”
Ball got one final tune-up in last Saturday before the marquee event. He qualified eighth quickest in his group before placing fifth in a heat race. That lined him up on the inside of the seventh row for the main event.
“It was a little up and down,” he said. “The race track decided to do split qualifying and we drew a bad number. We were the second-to-last car out of the first group. Our time would have put us third quick if we would have gone out a couple of cars later.
“We made it through the heat and in the A Main we raced well and passed some cars. We had some unlucky breaks when I’d pass cars and then the yellow would come out. It felt like I passed about 12 cars, but only ended up with four officially.”
Ball rallied to record a ninth-place result, which was his 16th top 10 and gives the team momentum entering this weekend.
“I feel more confident because we’ve been consistent with our qualifying,” he said. “Our balance is good and our motor program is great. I can’t wait.”
White Lightning Motorsports teammate Devin Kline will return to action in the 305ci class on Saturday at Knoxville Raceway.
