Dakotah Knuckles held off several challenges for the lead to win Sunday’s Buddy Rogers Memorial Fall Nationals race. Knuckles appeared to have lost the lead to Jason Trammell on lap 21, but a caution wiped out the pass. Knuckles received pressure from David Payne in the closing laps but held on to win the race. Other winners were Ricky Arms, Aaron Guinn, Hayston Collett, and Donovan Long were the other winners on Sunday.
