Ryan Giles and TKS Motorsports working to find rhythm after first Knoxville Raceway feature start of season


By Fully Injected Motorsports:

MITCHELLVILLE, Iowa (May 2, 2022) – After weeks of dealing with Mother Nature’s poor attitude, Grimes, Iowa’s Ryan Giles and TKS Motorsports finally had the opportunity to activate their 2022 campaign, officially, and rejoined some of the best in the Midwest for weekly championship action at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, April 30. Making their first feature start of the season, Giles, aboard the Albaugh LLC/Iowa Barnstormers No. 2KS 410 sprint car, started 18th and finished 16th, kicking off the evening with the 19th-fastest time overall in qualifying time trials. 

The team finished sixth in their respective heat race to transfer directly into the 20-lap main event.

The Sprint Car Capital of the World managed to conduct a partial program the weekend before, but weather interfered before feature competition could be completed; the rained-out main event will be made up at a later date.

“It feels good to finally get a feature under our belts. We have some things to work on, but we’ll build some rhythm soon enough,” Troy Renfro explained, owner of the TKS Motorsports entry. “We have so many people to thank, especially our friends at Albaugh LLC and the Iowa Barnstormers. They are the real reason we are able to go out and do this.” 

Ryan Giles and TKS Motorsports will continue their 2022 campaign with another round of action at the famed Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, on Saturday, May 7.
