David Gravel Continues Knoxville Roll in Nationals Opener!

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (August 11, 2021) – David Gravel continued his momentum as he won the 60th NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals BRANDT Professional Agriculture Qualifying Night at Knoxville Raceway Wednesday. The Watertown, Connecticut driver made it two in a row at Knoxville after winning Sunday’s Fatheadz Eyewear Capitani Classic Presented by Great Southern Bank. The driver of the Big Game Motorsports #2 earned $12,000 for his tenth career win here. Gio Scelzi emerged as the high point driver on the night (complete points below).

Zeb Wise had the lead on lap one, but by only .008 of a second over Justin Henderson. Henderson moved into the lead on lap two, as Wise, Gravel, Peck and Josh Baughman followed. Gravel used the low side to dispose of Wise for the runner-up spot on lap four, as Scelzi entered the top four. On lap six, Scelzi slid in front of Wise in three and four to take third.

Henderson entered lapped traffic two laps before Wise slowed with a rear-end issue nine laps in. The only restart of the race saw Henderson leading Gravel, Scelzi, Peck and James McFadden.

Donny Schatz entered the top five on lap 13, while Henderson maintained his lead heading back into traffic on lap 17. Schatz gained fourth from Peck with five to go.

Up front, Gravel was gaining on Henderson, who slid in front of a lapper. On lap 22, Gravel cruised on the low side to take the lead with three to go.

Gravel’s win came ahead of Scelzi, who gained second on the white flag lap, Schatz who made a last corner pass for third, Henderson and Peck. Sheldon Haudenschild, hard-charger Logan Schuchart, McFadden, Cory Eliason and Spencer Bayston rounded out the top ten. Brooke Tatnell set quick time over the 49-car field, while Josh Schneiderman, Kyle Reinhardt, Riley Goodno, Jake Bubak and Ayrton Gennetten won heats. Tanner Carrick won the C main, and Schuchart claimed the B.

“This car is bad,” said Gravel in Victory Lane. “I’m ready for Saturday. That was a fast paced race. It was wide open on the top. It was starting to get tricky at the end, and that’s why I kind of pulled the trigger on Justin. It started to curb up, and my wing was starting to go back by itself. It just got a little tight at the end. (Henderson) kind of pulled away from me on the restart, and he slid that lapped car and that broke his momentum. I was able to stick the bottom of one and two.”

“I’m not sure how much I did,” said Scelzi. “This car pretty much drives itself around this racetrack. It was an awesome racetrack. I’ve never seen it not build a cushion like that. These guys have nailed the racetrack through the 360’s and the Cappy.”

“We could have got there,” said Schatz about his pursuit of the win. “Twenty-five laps is a lot shorter than it’s going to be come Saturday. We got rolling at the end. Man, you change one thing and you end up changing ten. You try to make a step in a certain direction and you take a step back. That’s what these prelim nights are for. We’ll have a couple days to let the masterminds come up with a plan. We’ll be there.”

The 60th NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals Presented by Casey’s continues Thursday, August 11 with Wolfe Eye Clinic Qualifying Night. For more information, visit or check Knoxville Raceway’s Facebook and Twitter.
