R&W Motorsports rejoined the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series tour from September 15-17 at the historic Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, as the 13th Annual 'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals' thrilled fans over the extended weekend in the Hawkeye State. The three-day crown jewel spectacular kicked off with a pair of preliminary showdowns - each of which paid $7,000 to the winner. At the 1/2-mile Marion County Fairgrounds complex on Thursday night, Jimmy Owens won his heat race before starting and finishing eleventh in the 25-lap feature event. On Friday evening, Jimmy timed in third quickest in Group A during qualifying, advanced up to third in his heat race, led the first circuit in the 25-lapper, and eventually garnered an impressive runner-up effort behind only victor Josh Richards.

By virtue of racking up the second largest point total of the 69 entrants during preliminary action, Jimmy was locked into the outside of the front row for Saturday's 100-lap 'Lucas Oil Late Model Knoxville Nationals,' which once again boasted a whopping $40,000 payday. The Newport, Tennessee star bolted to the front at the drop of the green flag and paced the stellar field for the first ten laps. Jimmy was then running inside of the top five shortly before the halfway point when he was forced to retire his smoking car, which relegated him to a disappointing twenty-seventh place performance. He still sits tenth in the latest LOLMDS point standings exiting Knoxville Raceway. Complete results from the weekend can be viewed online at www.lucasdirt.com.
