Jason Meyers won his first career World of Outlaws race on Monday night with a dominating performance at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway.

Meyers led from start to finish and took the checkered flag .6 seconds ahead of Danny Lasoski, who assumed the points lead after Mark Kinser tangled with Craig Dollansky and finished 14th.

“Wow! This is great,” said Meyers, who started the race from the pole after winning the Channellock Dash. “I just can’t believe how good this feels. Davey (Whitworth), Tyler (Swank) and all the guys have stuck with me all year long — even when we were struggling and I wasn’t in a very good mood, but to come here and win my first race a Knoxville, it’s just incredible.

“I just tried to keep the car straight and not make any mistakes, because I know how tough all those guys are at this place.”

After Meyers and Lasoski, Steve Kinser, Dollansky and Stevie Smith rounded out the Top 5.

Andy Hillenburg used a provisional to start the race 25th, but he charged through the 28-car pack to finish eighth behind Tim Shaffer (sixth) and Jac Haudenschild (seventh).

While Meyers was cruising to his milestone win, reigning Outlaws champion Steve Kinser was putting on a clinic behind him.

Kinser started 11th but quickly made his way through the field. Kinser began his march to the front in earnest on Lap 14 when he passed Haudenschild high in Turn 4 for seventh place.

Smith was next on Kinser’s list. On Lap 20, Kinser took control of sixth place with a pass on Smith low on the exit of Turn 2.Three laps later Kinser picked off Joey Saldana for fifth in turns 1 and 2. Next up was cousin Mark Kinser, who entered the race as the points leader. Steve stole fourth from Mark with another low pass in the first and second turns.

On the next lap, Steve Kinser worked the bottom of the half-mile dirt oval in the third and fourth turns to steal third from Dollansky. That was as high as The King would climb. Lasoski held on to second.

Other winners on Monday night at Knoxville were Saldana, Meyers, Dollansky and Ricky Logan in the heat races; Travis Cram in the C feature, and Danny Wood in the B feature. Lasoski was the fast qualifier in time trials.

The Outlaws return to the track Wednesday night at the Action Track in Terre Haute, Ind.
