And the checkered flag fell on night one in our Knoxville Nationals Pick’em Contest, and when the dust finally settled, Dustin Jarret held off a strong field of competitors to collect the win. Jarrett’s team managed to yield him 183 points, keeping ahead of Tom Heier and the fantastic one himself, Mr. Joe Beaver!
Jarrett was proud of the effort his team gave in a stout opening night performance. “I’ll tell ya what, we were fast right outta the gate. Just been a a rocketship all night, really. Jarrett said in TDN Victory Lane. “I gotta thank the people who got me here, all my great sponsors, and the fans…without them, we wouldn’t be sitting here!”
Tonight begins round two, and for many of you, a chance at redemption as some contestants have only had one or two out of their six selections take to the track thus far. Be sure to check back tomorrow for the updated standings after round two, right here at TDN!
And here’s how everyone stacked up on night 1. Congrats Dustin Jarrett!
