 Mefford, Knepley, Anderson All Had Good Rides at Speedway Saturday Night

July 9, 2008 - It was almost a Knightstown reunion at the finish line after the Raintree 100 at Mt. Lawn Speedway Saturday night.

By the time the 23-car starting field finished the annual race at the speedway, three of the top five spots were claimed by Knightstown drivers. Brandon Mefford finished second, Scott Knepley was fourth and Randy Anderson finished fifth.

Knepley and Anderson both led the race at one point.

“We had a pretty good night,” Anderson said. “I started outside on the fourth row and probably dropped back to about 15th at one point. I just tried to remain patient and take advantage of whatever chances came around to move up in the pack.”

Anderson took the lead on lap five and held that position for seven laps. Knepley claimed the lead on lap 32 and was running strong up front until he got into trouble in the short turn. Knepley and eventual race winner Terry Cater got together and the bump caused both drivers to get flat tires. When they pitted, L.J. Lines took the lead and Mefford moved into second place on lap 42.

The fifth place finish was especially satisfying to Anderson, who was running in the Raintree 100 for just the third time.

“We had a chance to win the race and I was pretty happy with my finish,” Anderson said. “It was pretty exhausting because it was so hot and the race took about two hours to run because of all of the cautions. I almost passed out when I got out of the car.

“But I had a chance to win the race with about four or five laps to go, and that’s about all you can ask for. I just didn’t have enough to get it done.”
