Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/08/2019 -- Starks picked a great time to win his first ever main event at the Knoxville Raceway. The Puyallup, Washington native held off a strong field at Knoxville Raceway Wednesday to take home the $12,000 on night #1 of the 59th Annual Nationals.
"I absolutely cannot believe it," said an emotional Starks in Victory Lane.
"This hasn't been the best year for us for multiple reasons. We've had a ton of rain and haven't got the laps we wanted to here. We learn something every week we come here, and it seems like the last couple weeks nothing has gone our way. After all the bad luck this week, to say we were due for this one is an understatement. To say we were due for this one is an understatement! We've needed this one, and tonight was the night to do it. Special thanks to our friends at Champion Racing Oil, this one is for you."

Champion Racing Oils are built specifically to meet the lubrication demands of race car engines, especially those using flat tappet and roller cams operating at high RPMs and that require high-pressure valve springs. To meet these demands, Champion utilizes its premium ZDDP anti-wear protection package, which contains a unique balance of chemistry that includes high levels of zinc and phosphorus.
In addition, all Champion Racing motor oils contain our exclusive TVS® (Thermal Viscosity Stabilizer) technology. This proprietary technology delivers unmatched film strength at high temperature, better piston ring seal for maximum compression, and increases the foot-pounds of torque in most engines.
