Inside Line Promotions – KNOXVILLE, Iowa (Nov. 17, 2014) – White Lightning Motorsports officially wrapped up the 2014 season last Saturday at the Knoxville Raceway banquet.

The team was awarded third place in the championship standings in the 360 class and was honored as the Sportsman of the Year in the 305 division.

“We’re making steady progress,” said Jamie Ball, who scored his first career 360 victory this season. “I think we’ve got consistent enough that we can contend for a championship next year.

“The sportsmanship award is something that is really important. A lot of people go through this sport and make it all about them. I think Devin (Kline) and the rest of our team is really proud about how we were able to help another driver achieve a dream.”

Kline and White Lighting Motorsports received the award in large part because of Kline allowing championship contender J. Kinder to use his engine on the final night of the season.

“I know how much getting those two wins my rookie season meant to me,” Kline said. “I couldn’t imagine what a championship on the line meant for him. It feels good to help him out.”

Additionally, White Lightning Motorsports scored a new Maxim chassis and a set of wings thanks to the random drawing Knoxville Raceway holds for the teams that attended at least 75 percent of the races.

“The Maxim chassis was the best prize we could win at the banquet so we’re thrilled about that,” Ball said. “We were the first team drawn so we definitely picked a Maxim chassis.”

White Lightning Motorsports would also like to thank the Knoxville Raceway Charitable Organization, which provided insurance for eligible drivers, a $500 credit for safety products and a new driveline restraint system.

“Since I got hurt in 2012 we switched to Maxim Chassis and the first night out after we put the car together Dusty Zomer won before I could get back in the car,” Ball said. “They not only build fast cars that help us be successful, but they keep up safe as well.”
