LMS hosts Huey Knight Memorial Race

-A A +A
By Michael Knight

Lancaster Motor Speedway will honor one of the track’s all-time greats in Huey Knight on Saturday night.
Knight was a fixture at LMS for many of years, and his two sons, Jeff and Dennis Knight, are racing legends at LMS.
Many call Jeff Knight the best there ever was at LMS, but on Saturday, it will be a night to remember the late, great Knight.
Knight along with his sons were inducted into the LMS Hall of Fame on Sept. 12, 2015.
Knight worked on many race cars over the years and also raced some.
For several years he drove the LMS wrecker. Knight enjoyed his track duties, moving down the straightaways with the door open, saying it gets the air flowing inside the wrecker.
A benefit race was held in 2015 to help Knight with his medical expenses, and a couple of weeks later he died.
In addition to working on cars and being around the race track, Huey Knight was an avid outdoorsman, who enjoyed fishing and deer hunting.
The LMS Saturday night card will feature the SECA Crate Late Models.
The SECA Crate Sportsman headline the night of racing, paying $2,000 to win.
The Extreme 4 will pay $750, with the Super Stock, Renegade, Pure Stock V8 and Vintage also set to run at the half-mile dirt oval.
More details on the big race night will be announced next week.
LMS, which opened in 1954, is located at 223 Shiloh Unity Road. From Lancaster, take U.S. 521 North four miles to Shiloh Unity Road. Turn right on Shiloh Unity Road and follow a short distance to the track on the left. Parking is available in the grandstand parking lot.
