March 18, 2017 - Top 5 Finish for Cla Knight in Modoc 100 at Modoc Raceway
North Augusta, South Carolina's Cla Knight powered his Augusta Aquatics #42 Longhorn Crate Late Model to a Top-5 finish in Saturday night’s $5,000-to-win Modoc 100.

“We had a really good car from the time we unloaded,” said Knight. “In fact, I think we had an even better car than we showed in the feature, but passing was kind of difficult. Even at that, with the struggles we’ve had early in the year, I’m definitely pleased with our performance. We’ll head onto Cherokee and try to get our first win of the season."

With 33 entries on hand for the 9th annual Modoc 100, Cla qualified fourth fastest overall in time trials to lock into the 6th-starting spot for the 50 lap finale. He jumped to the 5th position on the opening circuit. From that point the bottom groove would be dominant, and Knight rode in line to a 5th-place finish.

November 20, 2016 - Cla Knight Launches New Website
North Augusta, South Carolina's Cla Knight is the latest addition to the MSR Mafia and has launched a brand-new website at www.ClaKnight.com.

The 21-year old has been racing for nine years and despite his young age he's already enjoyed considerable success in racing. A three-year Go-Kart career spurred several wins and titles. Since 2011 his focus has been on the Crate Late Model division in his Augusta Aquatics #42 Longhorn entry. (Christopher Brown photo)

He's claimed 89 wins during his racing career, and in 2016 alone he has scored five triumphs.

On Sunday Knight made history by becoming the first driver to win the FASTRAK Pro Late Model Southeast National Championship and the FASTRAK Pro Late Model Mid-Ohio Valley Championship in the same season. Cla reached this goal by finishing in the runner-up spot on Sunday in the weather-delayed Georgia State Championship Race at Lavonia Speedway (Lavonia, Georgia).

“We’ll take second, as I could have tried to make something happen at the end of the race, but I had to look at the big picture,” Knight said.  “We’ll take this championship back to North Augusta with us and put it on the mantel next to the Fastrak MOV Championship Trophy.  I’m proud to have become the first driver in Fastrak history to win two championships in the same year.  Just to win one title with the competition in this series is pretty tough, let alone two!”
