“I got going good there and I thought we might have a shot at Brad,” McCarl said. “He kind of didn’t know the rubber was on the bottom and he was running up in the middle… We needed to get to him again before he found it.”

McCarl, a seven-time track champion at Knoxville and the current 410 points leader at the track, said it was tough to get around Sweet once he found the right line.

“Some of the things you’ve got to slow down a little bit and take what they give you,” McCarl said. “I knew Brad kind of got out on us at that point and (then we were) trying to keep Shane behind us.”

Stewart, who also found his way around Lasoski as the 25-lap feature wore on, finished in third.

“I honestly made too many mistakes,” Stewart said. “Terry actually found the rubber before I did and I probably should have moved down a little earlier than I did and just messed up. And then I thought I was going to have a pretty good run on him in the last corner and I missed the rubber in one and two and just killed my momentum.”

“Obviously a really good finish here. It’s hard to win here — it’s hard to finish on the podium. Any time that we can do that for the (Larson Marks Racing) guys and Go Pro it makes all their hard work and effort worth it to see their car run up front, so it’s special to me as well.”

In the race for the championship, Donny Schatz’s point lead was cut to six points.

Justin Henderson won the 360 sprint car feature.
