GRIMES, Iowa (August 8, 2022) – Ryan Giles and Ryan Giles Racing did their best to harness a season’s worth of momentum into the largest event of the year, but despite the hard work and determination, their 360 Knoxville Nationals campaign was, at best, frustrating, forced to time late during their respective preliminary night which ultimately led to a poor send off, resulting in the 36th-fastest time overall. To add insult to injury, Giles finished fifth during his respective preliminary night heat race; he was one spot short of a transfer position.
Giles capped his 360 Knoxville Nationals campaign in Saturday’s D-Main; he did not start.
Despite his 360 Knoxville Nationals result ending shy of the ultimate goal, Giles is eager to get back to work, aiming big in Knoxville Raceway’s season championship on August 27.
“It was a tough weekend for our team. We were aiming for big results in the Nationals, but every lap counts and having to time late kinda killed our momentum,” Giles explained, driver of the Ryan Giles Racing, Albaugh LLC., Iowa Barnstormers, Hicklin Powersports, Barron Equipment, Omega Concrete Mixers, No. 9 sprint car. “Hats off to this team. They never give up. We still have a big night ahead at the end of the month. We’ll do what we can to cap the Knoxville season with a bang.”
As noted, Ryan Giles and Ryan Giles Racing (360 Sprint Car) will continue their 2022 campaign with Knoxville Hospital & Clinics Season Championship Night at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, August 27; Knoxville’s regular season will officially conclude.
Ryan Giles would like to thank all of his marketing partners including: Albaugh, LLC., Iowa Barnstormers, Hicklin Powersports, Barron Equipment, and Omega Concrete Mixers.
