ULMS Northern Tier: Knight Rides to Win in Saturday Edition of "September Spectacular"

By Glenn Slocum

BUSTI, N.Y. - Sept. 11. Mike Knight led from the green to win the Saturday Edition of the Roberts Trucking ULMS Super Late Model 40-lap race. It was Knight’s backup car that won on Friday with Robbie Blair at the wheel. Tonight Blair finished third, with Dave Hess Jr. the runner-up.

Knight led Hess by the flagstand to lead the first lap, with Chad Ruhlman third as Doug Eck and John Lobb raced side by side for fifth before Eck slowed and pitted with five complete.

Knight and Hess remained the front two while Barton took third away from Ruhlman on the restart. Chad Valone moved into the top five, passing John Lobb, and after another caution for a spun Ward Schell, Valone bettered Barton on the restart for fourth.

Last night's winner, Robbie Blair, was the next mover, taking fourth from Valone just before the halfway mark. The leaders were in heavy lap traffic as Ruhlman fell to Blair. With ten laps remaining Knight led Hess by ten car lengths and Blair was a distant third. Hess closed up with Knight and looked faster with eight laps remaining.

With a debris caution with just four laps remaining, Knight was able to maintain a four length lead and held on as Hess finished with a smoking race car just a length ahead of Blair.
