There were quite a few winners Saturday evening at the Knoxville Raceway on Season Championship Night.

The August 24 show concluded the sprint car portion of the season at the Knoxville Raceway for season number 66 of weekly racing at the world-famous Knoxville half-mile dirt oval.

There was even a bonus feature held as a 360 make-up feature from June 22 was held in addition to the regularly slated three other main events.

Young 17-year-old driver Gio Scelzi continues to amaze. He picked up $5,000 for his second feature win at the track in the 410 ranks. Wayne Johnson ran second, Kerry Madsen third, followed by Terry McCarl and Parker Price-Miller.

In the twin 360 features. Feature one was a hold your breath until the very end as Carson McCarl passed McKenna Haase with half a lap to go to win. Haase was second followed by Lee Grosz in third.

The second feature was halted three laps short when rain pelted the track as the lock approached midnight.

Jamie Ball picked up the win ahead of Clint Garner, C. McCarl and Haase.

The Pro Series feature was captured by Russ Hall with Evan Epperson and Matt Johnston rounding out the top three.

Track champions for the year were Brian Brown in the 410 ranks, Carson McCarl 360s and Matthew Stelzer in the Pro Sprints.

Flagman Doug Clark flagged his final sprint race at Knoxville as he enters retirement from the stand.
